Restaurants with a local/natural/organic focus in NEO
- Bistro on Main – Kent, OH
- This restaurant was EXCELLENT! While I don’t see this on the website, our waiter told us about how the Bistro trys to buy its meats from local farms and local veggies during the summer…hopefully it’s true!
- VegiTerranean – Akron, OH
- I thought this restaurant was strictly vegan (according to the website) but I see quite a few meat and dairy options on the menu. While it might be soy products, I’m just not sure…let me know if you’ve been!
Spas, Salons, etc – Feel and look beautiful!
