Thirty five years ago proprietor Daniel Greenblatt opened Greenleaf Restaurant to Southern Oregon locals. We are proud to announce that Greenleaf has turned a page and released a “Second Edition”. Located on Main Street and along Calle Guanajuato in Downtown Ashland, our second edition was spearheaded by the local BFLM restauranteur group and paired with dishes by chef and kitchen consultant Corrie Matthews. Greenleaf’s second edition is about fun, casual dining and great cuisine with food that is a little hearty and a little healthy for everyone.
Our culinary focus is on Pacific Northwest inspired appetizers, salads, sandwiches, burgers, pastas and steakhouse classics.
Located in the 1879 Independent Order of Oddfellows (IOOF) Building, the restaurant offers a variety of seating. Greenleaf Restaurant seats over 100 with additional seating on our upper outdoor patio overlooking Calle Guanajuato and along Ashland Creek in our creekside seating area.
The historic building and Ashland’s commitment to supporting and celebrating the literary arts inspired a literary theme for Greenleaf’s second edition. The aesthetics and physical space of the restaurant were designed in collaboration with local designer Kelly Ingledew and BFLM Group partner Marisela Mendoza. The design concept pays homage to the literary arts and this plays out in a variety of ways; from our menu layout to our quote ledger to our wall gallery. And our floor-to-ceiling bookshelf is coming in March. It will house over 200 handpicked hardback and paperback pieces of literature.
Greenleaf’s first edition had a rich history in our little town and a lot of elements that we wanted to preserve in its latest edition. Come in soon and see for yourself.
