Patio dining at Lulu’s in August. #EatGreenSTL

Every first Thursday of the month, we call on all St. Louis foodies to join the Green Dining Alliance at a GDA-certified restaurant for a Dine Out Night. We like to call it a “Buycott.”

Dine Out Nights are how you can show support for the businesses that share your values by doing something we all love – breaking bread with friends and family.

By directing our dining dollars toward green-certified restaurants, the GDA brings people together to say: “Thank you for doing what you do for sustainability!”

This is not a formal event. Just have dinner or drinks with your loved ones as you normally would – but do it knowing that you’re making a difference, by actively supporting St. Louis’ alternative local economy. #EatGreenSTL!

Note that GDA restaurants vary greatly in size, menu items, and pricing. We try to feature widely accessible establishments, but if your party has specific considerations, call the restaurant for details.

Remember, any time you dine at a GDA-certified location, tell them that you support their commitment to sustainability!


Connect on social media by tagging the restaurant and using the hashtag #EatGreenSTL!
