Durham restauranteurs Mark Shadle and his wife, Ami Beach-Shadle have earned yet another accolade for their unique approach to food.
G-Zen, the couple's vegan restaurant in nearby Branford, was named one of the best vegetarian/vegan restaurants in all of Connecticut in the February edition of Connecticut Magazine.
"You'll forget you're not eating any meat--or dairy--when you taste the vegan specialties coming out of Mark Shadle's kitchen. The black bean veggie burger is a must, with sweet potato fries and housemade hickory ketchup," a review in the magazine says.
The magazine surveyed nearly 90 "dining-out experts" in 26 categories ranging from best cocktail to best outdoor dining to best value.
Last summer, G-Zen was named by Shape Magazine as one of the nation's best vegan restaurants.
The couple recently began serving brunch on Saturday's at G-Zen.
