Where's the Beef?

Meatless Monday Comes to Seattle

Good for us, good for the planet…we’re lovin’ it.

Seattle food + booze impresario Linda Derschang has announced that two of her restaurants, Oddfellows Cafe + Bar and Smith will go meatless on Mondays, starting November 29.

And by meatless, they mean that on Mondays Oddfellows chef Thomas Schultz and Smith Chef Chris Howell will serve their regular menus, but offer vegetarian-only specials.

Meatless Monday is a non-profit initiative in association with Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. The focus of the campaign is to start each week with healthy, environmentally friendly meat-free meals. The goal is to help reduce meat consumption by 15% to improve personal health and the health of the planet, and restaurants are beginning to sign on, all over the country.

Seattle cookbook author Kim O’Donnel (The Meat Lover’s Meatless Cookbook), will join Derschang and Schultz at Oddfellows on November 29 to kick off the program. She’ll sign copies of her book from 6pm to 8pm while Schultz prepares recipes out of it.
