A new Applebee’s is opening in Harlem on December 10th, which will be the greenest restaurant in New York. It is on track to be the city’s first LEED-certified Gold eatery, of which there are only eleven nationwide.

NYPost reports that the $4 million restaurant has lots of environmentally-friendly features, including a greenhouse on the roof, rainwater harvesting, waterless urinals, and an indoor vertical garden called the ‘living wall’, which includes hundreds of plants that are watered and fertilized automatically. The chandeliers, countertops and bar are all made of bamboo.

The green Applebee’s has energy-efficient appliances, recycled carpeting, and LED lights with motion sensors that switch them off if nobody is around. There is also an educational touchscreen in the restaurant to inform customers about all of these features.
