Sunny skies have arrived, and bellagreen is inviting guests to enjoy the patio weather with vibrant new dishes that celebrate summer’s finest ingredients.
As a certified green restaurant, bellagreen is committed to making life and Earth more beautiful by using fresh, clean ingredients to celebrate the season through its quarterly menu offerings. Beginning June 22, the Summer Seasonal Menu will be available for dine-in, as well as to-go and delivery from bellagreen.com. Guests can choose from these chef-driven, scratch-made items that can be modified to meet specific dietary needs:
Texas Grilled Peach Salad (VEG, GF) – Arugula, fresh baby spinach, grilled Texas peaches, strawberries and red onion, tossed in a paleo maple vinaigrette and topped with goat cheese, house-made candied pecans and microgreens.
Wagyu Bacon Burger – All-natural Wagyu beef with sweet and spicy candied bacon, caramelized onions, raspberries, house-made pickles, lettuce, tomatoes and roasted garlic aioli on a brioche bun.
Paleo Mango Salmon Tacos (GF, DF) – Pan-seared, sustainably sourced tajin seasoned salmon topped with a refreshing combination of shredded jicama, fresh mango, cucumber, mixed cabbage, cilantro and citrus honey vinaigrette. Topped with house-made paprika and parsley seasoned almond flour tortillas.
Gluten-Free Key Lime Pie (GF, VEG) – Coconut, hemp seed and almond flour gluten-free crust filled with key lime custard and topped with house-made whipped cream, fresh strawberries and a mint sprig.
To support its mission to make Earth more beautiful, bellagreen will donate 50-cents to Texas Trees Foundation for every Paleo Mango Salmon Tacos sold in the Dallas area. Since September 2018, bellagreen has raised $47,431 for its local non-profit partners, allowing them to plant 23,715 tree seedlings in Houston and North Texas.
bellagreen’s Director of Culinary, Silvestre Reyes, has created two new “From the Chef” menu items that will be available after 5 p.m. daily. These specially curated dinner entrées are made using Mother Earth’s goodness and pair perfectly with bellagreen’s Sustainably in Practice (SIP) Certified wines:
Pistachio-Crusted Snapper (GF, DF) – Seared pistachio-crusted red snapper topped with jumbo shrimp. Served with grilled zucchini spears, warm quinoa salad and garnished with a lemon wedge and microgreens.
Garlic Rosemary Prime Ribeye (GF) – Seared 10-ounce boneless prime ribeye topped with garlic rosemary butter. Served with skillet French green beans and roasted potato wedges.
“At bellagreen, we go above and beyond to deliver a beautiful experience to our guests,” says bellagreen CEO Jason Morgan. “Our seasonal offerings are made with the freshest, finest ingredients and, like the rest of our menu, can be modified to meet the dietary needs of each individual. Summer brings about some delicious flavors that we’re excited to feature in our new Seasonal Menu. In addition to debuting one-of-a-kind, wholesome dishes, we look forward to continuing our partnership with the Texas Trees Foundation to contribute to a greener environment.”
