VPF Green Series: Brunch at Counter

Join VPF for a relaxing Saturday brunch at one of NYC's green restaurants!

Saturday, August 9 @ 3:00 PM
Where: Counter, 105 First Avenue (between 6th and 7th Streets)
New York City, New York 10003
Telephone: (212) 982-5870

Directions: F Train: Second Avenue & Houston street stop, use the First avenue exit and walk 6-1/2 blocks north on First.

Given VPF's focus this year is on helping social entrepreneurs engage with the environment, we want to kick off the first in a series of members events at a location that is green.

Counter has been certified by the Green Restaurant Association, a non-profit dedicated to making the restaurant industry green. Being a green restaurant means not only using ingredients that are sustainable but also using energy efficiently, composting, recycling and investing in equipment that limits water use. 

You'll hear about this and more as you listen to one of Counter's chefs!  We have organized a private two-course prix fixe brunch menu (including sangria) for $34. Current members  (and friends interested in VPF) will have the option to order a la carte, but should contact events@nycvpf.org in advance to reserve a space.
