The Ethics Of Farm To Table

Posted by Jan 15,2018 2 comments
The concept of Farm To Table is pretty loosely defined and varies from person to person. Most people see the label and assume that any restaurant bearing its name is turning out farm fresh dishes. But as we know, that is not always true. The debate about Farm To Table and Farm To Fable is one we've always publicly stayed away from, choosing instead to let our work and our food do the talking.

We've met so many wonderful people and continue to be amazed by the overwhelming support. In one short year you've watched our food evolve and our staff grow, you waited patiently with iced tea while our beer and wine license was pending approval; you've seen our patio plants bloom and die, you saw our patio cover go up this winter and even humored us by eating in the rain! Most recently you've seen us expand hours to include Happy Hour from 3pm - 5pm. And now with warm summer days approaching we are working to install patio fans to keep you cool.
