Kale & Clover: Mindful Kitchen Today through Sunday, March 1

This week local restaurateur German Osio opens his fourth concept called Kale & Clover: Mindful Kitchen. As a health-focused restaurant, Kale & Clover offers mostly vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free with the option to add proteins to many dishes. In addition to breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the restaurant serves cold-pressed juices, smoothies, nut milks, herb-infused spa waters, locally roasted coffees, and espresso drinks, as well as beer and wine. During the restaurant's opening week a select number of diners will be able to try the new menu for free: the first 30 guests for breakfast, 30 for lunch, and 40 for dinner each day will receive a complimentary meal up to $18 value. Donations will be accepted to benefit Amy's Army, which benefits individuals with spinal cord injuries.
