Verde 22 West 25th Street

A sign on the counter at Verde reads: “We are on a mission to make the salad world a better place.” Owners Gonzalo Gout and Alejandro Porteny met in middle school in Mexico City. Gonzalo went to culinary school in New York, where he met Mariana Villegas, now in charge of food at Verde. Alejandro went to school in Boston. In 2016, after working in NYC restaurants, the two men came upon the perfect location for Verde. It was to be a “fine, casual” salad experience in a grab-and-go world.
