Mary Swortwood [Green Dog Cafe]

By Karen Christopfel · April 14th, 2010 · Look Who's Eating

If you’ve dined at Green Dog Café, you know that chef/owner Mary Swortwood puts the panache in organic, sustainable and seasonal dining with a plentiful lunch, brunch and dinner menu. Green Dog Café not only does a body good but, with local and regional vendors, it also does a community good.

Mary is a seasoned chef with 25 years of experience. Now, with a new restaurant that has been getting a lot of buzz, she's a very busy woman.

CityBeat: What’s the last great meal you ate, and where did you eat it?

Mary Swortwood: It has been hectic since we opened — haven’t been out in seven or eight months! I would have to say the Crispy Pork Belly Tacos at Nada was the last great meal I had out.

It was a leisurely, pre-opening dinner with family.

CB: So, aside from the tacos, what have you been eating lately?

MS: Since I have been gluten and dairy free for a while now, my diet has definitely changed!

With so much great vegan and gluten-free fare at Green Dog, I'm sure she won’t go hungry.
