After months of patiently waiting (okay, not so patiently), the second location of Green, Damon Brasch's funky vegan bistro, in downtown Phoenix is now open.
Green's location, a house at 2022 North 7th Street, was formally Brasch's sandwich shop called That's a Wrap before he sold it to longtime manager Erik Hansen (and Hansen moved it to the old Lola Tapas spot on Camelback.)
Although Green is "soft opened" for now, Brasch tells me he will be having a grand opening in the next couple of weeks.
Like the original location in Tempe, Green will be open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Both locations will serve the same menu items.
The opening of the second location of Green comes on the heels of Brasch's new snack shop, Nami. Located next door to Green, Nami serves up coffee, pastries, and Brasch's invention, the Tsoynami, an organic ice cream treat featuring Blizzard-like flavors.
