Food truck GMonkey Mobile is finalizing details for its new sit-down restaurant space in Branford, Conn. The eatery, which will be called G-Zen, will feature similar sustainable, veg, and raw cuisine to its traveling counterpart. Creole cornmeal tempeh with caramelized onions, portobello tofu Napoleon, and vegan tabletop s’mores are just a few of the dishes that are expected on the menu, says Co-owner Ami Beach Shadle. Popular items from the truck, such as the tempeh Reuben sandwich and raw veggie lasagna, will also be offered, as well as alcoholic beverages like organic, biodynamic wines and raw sake blended with fresh juices. Shadle tells the Hartford Courant, “We’re taking health drinks and making them into cocktails. You’re not going to feel hung over in the morning.” The restaurant is currently scheduled to open in mid-October.
