Led by nationally acclaimed chef and author Annie Somerville, Greens Restaurant has become one of the most celebrated restaurants in the world. Extensively reviewed by food, wine, and design publications, Greens has been a perennial top 100 Bay Area restaurant according to the San Francisco Chronicle, recognized as one of America’s best restaurants by Zagat, and is a Michelin Guide recommendation. Annie is a pioneer in working directly with local, organic farmers (including our own Green Gulch Farm in Marin County), selecting the freshest and most delicious seasonal produce to bring to the table.
Greens Restaurant opened in 1979 as part of San Francisco Zen Center, which includes Green Gulch Farm and Tassajara Zen Mountain Center. Located at historic Fort Mason Center in a former machine shop, Greens overlooks the San Francisco Marina with sweeping views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Marin Headlands.
Less than an hour North of the city, Green Gulch Farm in Marin County is a residential Zen community and bountiful organic farm. It provides the restaurant with a myriad of fresh garden edibles tended with care year-round, ranging from chard, leeks, and winter squash to flowering herbs. In addition to Green Gulch Farm, Greens draws from an extended family of local growers and organic farmers’ markets for its ingredients.
