I'd like this to be our MD/DE/DC area "Eat Here!" list. I'll start it off. Tonight dh and I are going to Great Sage in Clarksville for my birthday. They have incredible food, great desserts and a decent selection of organic wine and beer. To top it off, they're in a little shopping center with Roots Market (grocery store), a natural pet supplies store, and a fair trade/organic clothing store.<br><br><a href="http://www.great-sage.com/index.html" target="_blank">http://www.great-sage.com/index.html</a><br><br>

Happy Birthday!<br><br>
here are some others:<br>
Yabba Pot, vegan and so yummy, but, I think everyone is stoned there so service is v. slow<br>
One World Cafe University Pkwy- perfect for all occassions<br>
_______?___ on 36th Street- all organic stuff from local farms but no place to sit with kids<br>
Atwater's they always have vegan and vegetarian items on their daily changing menu, everything is clearly marked and whole foods<br>
And across the street- Al Pacino's- mediterranian is veg. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>
Similarly, Amer's Cafe on Bel Air Road at the beltway (kids can make their own pizza)<br><br>
I would like to see more organic only restaurants.

In Rockville, there is Vegetable Garden, all vegan with many macrobiotic and organic options. I love that there menu shows pictures for everything as well as ingredients!<br><br>
As for One World, we always try to get a corner table. The kids love to play on the benches around it as we eat!<br><br>
There is a great cafe in David's Natural Market in Columbia.

Restaurant Nora and Asia Nora in DC. Certified organic restaurants.<br><br>
Thyme Square Cafe in Bethesda uses a lot of organic and natural ingredients.<br><br>
I like Chipotle cause they use hormone/antibiotic vegetarian fed meat products and are buying as many organic beans and they can get. I try to support them because they are making the effort and its the only "fast food" I feel comfortable giving my kids.<br><br>
The Savory in Takoma Park tries to offer a lot of natural foods and Saturday nights they have a folk group starting at 7pm and kids are welcome.

It's called the Dogwood Deli 911 W. 36th Street. Yummy Juices! I think their dinning room is open now (it's downstairs, below the Birkram Yoga place). I haven't been in that part yet but might be easier with the youngsters.<br><a href="http://www.dogwooddeli.com/" target="_blank">http://www.dogwooddeli.com/</a>

There are so many I have been meaning to try in DC but I had a question about one. Has anyone ever tried Mr.Chen's Organic Chinese? According to their website they use organic products, but I know Chinese food places some times stretch the truth (like when you ask for no MSG). I get a craving for Chinese every now and again (the American style) and I would like a place that didn't leave me with a massive headache.

If in Frederick, check out The Orchard. Simple but yummy meals. They do serve chicken and fish but have mainly vegetarian foods. Their salad dressing is soooo good! It is on N. Market street in downtown Frederick.

I think that they use as much organic as possible, and local farmers as possible, too. I remember especially that the fruit in their desserts was always organic.

The place in Greenbelt is the New Deal Cafe, on Crescent Road. As crunchy as you can get.<br><br>
I think the Food Co-op in the Student Union at the University of maryland at College Park is probably as hippie-ish as ever. The smell of patchouli, hummus, cheese, and sweaty hippies was legendary (and much discussed) when I was a student there, and when I walked by the place a couple months ago (it had been relocated w/in the bldg) I knew I was walking past the Co-op before I even saw the sign.

For those interested in traditional diets/nourishing traditions way of eating (READ: NOT for vegetarians or low-fat eaters!) :<br><br><a href="http://www.thechameleoncafe.com/" target="_blank">http://www.thechameleoncafe.com/</a><br><br>
they use local, pastured, organic ingredients and the food is delicious!!!! It is in Baltimore (my parents drove and I don't know the city very well, but I know it is in the Lauraville area if that means anything ; )
