Who: Two Ceres Street

Two Ceres Street owners Marlisa Geroulo and John Golumb, use their business as an extension of their own sustainable lifestyle. The martini bar and restaurant was originally created via an extensive renovation, which incorporated as many eco-friendly and sustainable options as possible. Kieri board, a material made from wound discarded sorghum straw, was used for the paneling of the bar. Tabletops and shelving were made from PaperStone, a composite material created from 100 percent recycled paper and resin. Geroulo and Golumb also added LED lighting throughout the restaurant, Energy Star appliances and reclaimed materials, like Forest Stewardship Council certified tree stumps for seating and a fireplace made of scrap wood from Moran towing, the neighboring tugboat company. Two Ceres' floor is made from recycled plastic milk bottles and the restaurant has an extensive composting program for food waste. Adjacent to Two Ceres, and also owned by Geroulo and Golumb, is Poco's Bow Street Cantina, with its popular decks now with natural gas fueled outdoor heaters for chilly nights overlooking the river. Both restaurants boast many local and natural ingredients.
