The ways restaurants are striving to go greener are myriad — from the use of locally sourced produce to making sustainable seafood choices or choosing free-range, grass-fed meats. It’s about time someone gave them recognition for their efforts. Through the Nature’s Plate Award from Nature Conservancy, diners have the power to do exactly that. The award is a “people’s choice” for favorite green-minded restaurants based on criteria like serving tap instead of bottled water or choosing organic produce. The nationwide program gives its plaudits to a single establishment in each city — including Miami; Nature.org.
