On July 7th Chef Greg Arnold will be opening his plant-based (vegetarian) restaurant Mesa Verde at 1919 Cliff Drive, the former home of Cliff’s & Co. Arnold tells me that breakfast starts at 7 a.m. and will include home-made pastries and French Press coffee. The lunch menu begins at 11 a.m. and will continue until close. Dinner runs from 5 p.m. – 10 p.m. The restaurant will be open 7 days a week and will also offer beer and wine.
“It’s going to be 100% organic including all the juice, all the pastry, all the food, completely organic,” says Arnold. “The cuisine is Modern American style. There will be dinner dishes, and lunch dishes and a lot of shared plates. My cuisine doesn’t leave the Mediterranean but that’s all inclusive, like Libya, Morocco, south of France, Sicily, the whole Middle East (Syria, Lebanon), North African, Southern Spanish and southern Italian style cuisine.”
