Tender Greens (Walnut Creek)
We believe there should be a conscious connection between the one who eats the food and the source of that sustenance. These days people eat on the run. If we can’t slow you down, at least we can tell you a little about what you are eating.
The majority of our produce comes fresh picked daily from Scarborough Farms in Oxnard, where Wayne, Anne and the rest of the family grow things naturally. When we have to buy things that Scarborough doesn’t plant, we choose from a handful of small local farms that believe that picking at the peak of ripeness leads to a more delicious and healthier dish for you. We use organic ingredients wherever we can.
Our beef comes from grain-fed hormone/antibiotic free cows. Our chickens are raised on the range in Northern California, not in cages. They are nourished with grain instead of hormone-rich feed. Our tuna is line caught from the Pacific.
Our dedication to using only the finest ingredients extends not only to the raw products but to everything else we use in our recipes – cold pressed olive oils, mustards, vinegars, cheeses and wonderful nuts and ground spices all help bring you the best dishes we can make. Likewise, we look for local boutique wineries, cool microbreweries and organic tea blenders to provide beverages that respect the same commitment and care.
Breads are made fresh daily by artisinal bakeries who, like us, are dedicated to using the finest ingredients available for their products. Our desserts are baked at the restaurants every day.
