– The Odyssey
Committed to the triple bottom line—people, planet and profit—our management team works with Director of Environmental Health, Elizabeth Meltz, to make our restaurant as environmentally conscious as possible. From water to waste, disposables to chemicals, locally sourced food to the materials we use to outfit our space, sustainability is always at the forefront of our minds. We are constantly trying to reduce our impact on the environment by taking action on operational efficiency, ingredients and carbon offsets.
