Places that focus on local foods?

Opportunivore | Jun 17, 2004 02:45 PM

I’m putting together a list of restaurants whose chefs have a serious commitment to using foods from local farms and producers and would like any and all nominations -- no restrictions on price, cuisine, or location. By “serious commitment” I mean cooking as much local food as possible, week after week, not just featuring an heirloom-tomato salad when some distributor runs a special.

Here’s what I’ve got so far. If I’m wrong about any of these places, please let me know.


5 Ninth (unconfirmed, merely assumed from the chef’s record at Chickenbone Cafe)
71 Clinton Fresh Food
Blue Hill
The Grocery (yes, I know it’s in Brooklyn, but this is a short list)
The Tasting Room
