Asking restaurants about sourcing?

JeremyEG | Jan 7, 2009 03:34 PM

Hey Guys,
For those of you who like to eat responsibly sourced food, how do you go about finding out if your favorite restaurants source responsibly? If you simply call and ask, what have those conversations been like? I realize 'responsibly sourced' means something different to everyone. Some want local vegetbles or organic milk. Others want meat that hasn't been raised on a feedlot, others still care most that their fish is not on the endangered list. Regardless of your individual requirements, what have your experiences been like?

(I realize some people are not concerned with the origins of their food. I'm not as interested right now in discussing whether sourcing is important as I am finding out how people's conversations have gone with restaurants when they've asked about the issue).

Thanks so much guys.
