Organic vegan restaurant G-Zen began serving last Tuesday in Branford, CT, offering sustainable plant-based cuisine. Owners Mark and Ami Beach Shandle have been running mobile vegan food truck GMonkey Mobile since last May, and decided to expand to a formal restaurant space after the truck gained popularity. In addition to innovative vegan fare like tempeh “crab” cakes, portabella tofu Napoleon, and spinach-potato pierogies, G-Zen also offers living-food options such as raw pasta with cashew crème Alfredo sauce. Currently, the restaurant is only open Tuesday through Saturday for dinner, but the owners plan to extend the hours and add lunch service in the coming weeks.
