Now right off the main plaza, instead of its original San Blas home, Greens is the most health-conscious spot in Cusco's exploding restaurant scene. The setting, with its oversized prints of herbs and vegetables and recycled plastic bottle lampshades, fits the part. Much of the menu is sourced from the restaurant’s organic farm in the Sacred Valley and other local producers. Healthy food is the main emphasis. While many dishes are vegetarian (quinoa soup, beet and sweet potato ravioli), there are also some excellent meat dishes, like grilled alpaca with ratatouille. A full range of juices from Peruvian fruits is available, too.
