The lovely kids down in Ballard's Green-Go Restaurant are packing up their possessions and moving down to Mexico to have a go at sustainable farming. Heidi ad Dylan are two of the nicest people you'll ever meet and it's a fricking shame that Green-Go wasn't supported as well as it should have been. Since they have been selling their delicious meals at the Capitol Hill Farmers market, I've gotten the chance to taste some of the best, most lovingly prepared organic, local food I've had in a long time. The phenomenally juicy seasonal burgers with a variety of relishes (I still agree with Dylan about the yumminess of the relish that you thought was too weird, Heidi.) and fried egg sandwiches, and the amazing black bean burgers with polenta cakes. All made with ingredients grown by the farmers in the stalls next to them. The market just won't be the same without them. Hell, Ballard probably won't be the same either. I hate to see another great restaurant disappear but at least I know this: next time I go to Mexico I'll know where to stop for a great burger and even better company.
So Green-Go is having a restaurant supply firesale this week.
Get down there and help them out with some traveling dough.
