Does anyone know of a restaurant (like Marlow and Sons/Diner in NY) that is almost entirely seasonally and locally driven, pasture-raised animals -butchered in-house, casual atmosphere / NOT FANCY. etc..
Places like Father's Office and Hungry Cat, fancy fancy, are just not cutting it.
the curious palate in Mar Vista on Venice makes a good effort at sourcing their food locally and using good ingredients. I don't know what percentage of food they sell is local, but again they make a serious effort (i remember reading here that they do go to the mar vista farmers market)
Plus, it's down to earth, fairly priced, and tasty (the tortilla soup stands out in my mind... very flavorful). Certainly not mind blowing, but tasty and worth a look.
