GustOrganics Founder Alberto Gonzalez

GustOrganics is the brainchild of an Argentinean-born businessman, Alberto Gonzalez. Gonzalez, a self-professed foodie, came up with a basic plan for GustOrganics after deciding that New York City could use a food venue that offered up a fresh, healthy and organic fare. After polling New Yorkers about their ideas surrounding the perfect organic restaurant, Gonzalez compiled said ideals with his organic values, and GustOrganics was born.

Of course, that's the short version. You can learn more about GustOrganics founder, Gonzalez, at the GustOrganics website.

GustOrganics Healthy Menu Choices

Beyond certified organic, GustOrganic strives for a healthy menu too, which is a distinction, because organic doesn't always mean healthy. At GustOrganics however, organic does mean healthy. Portion control is a policy and food is never fried. Dishes are flavored with sun-dried sea salt, fresh herbs, and spices.

GustOrganics Pure Water

One unique attribute of GustOrganics is their water. Instead of shipping in costly and environmentally damaging bottled water, they use tap. As most environmentalists will tell you (self-included), tap water is hands down the safest, most eco-friendly choice when it comes to water.

GustOrganics runs their tap water through a UV lamp that kills bacteria, then rerun it through a purification system that takes out metals and toxins. They store their water in safe and reusable glass bottles and serve to patrons upon request. They additionally cook all their food with their pure water.

Do you doubt the safety and importance of tap water vs. bottled water? If so, I suggest you see two films - Flow and Tapped.

Water conservation and plastic bottles DO affect us all, and it rocks that GustOrganics is doing their part in this area.
