G-Zen Restaurant in Branford, CT
G-Zen is a vegetarian restaurant in Branford, CT. It's a beautiful space in an old house - dark wood, candlelight, minimalist surroundings with books to browse, mandala art, Buddhist statues, etc. The decor and menu make it feel like it's straight out of NYC. Diverse menu with lots to choose from; I had a dragonfruit/blackberry saketini and raw wrap with homemade wrap shell and fresh ingredients - with a side of coleslaw and mesquite kale chips. So delicious. For some reason the kale chips I make at home don't taste as good! I didn't have room for dessert but I saw what others ordered (vegan "cheesecake" and chocolate cake with hazelnuts with sliced pears for garnish). Everything was plated beautifully with good sized portions - the dishes felt indulgent even though they were all healthy and didn't make you feel lethargic after. I wish it wasn't almost an hour drive from where I live but I will definitely be going back and I recommend it to anyone looking for a delicious vegetarian, vegan, or raw food meal in CT!
