I moved to Philly from New York and I'm missing all my favorite spots. I'm looking for authentic, local, not processed, organic, vegetarian, all that good stuff. Suggestions in Center City? What's on your top ten? Thanks.

        Monk's, Honey's Sit and Eat, Southwark, Mug Shots and White Dog Cafe are all sustaining members of the Fair Food Buy Fresh/Buy Local organization (a part of the White Dog Foundation). Of those, Monk's, Honey's and Southwark usually get good reviews on this voard (as best I recall - might want to search) . Here is a link to all of the restaurants that have made a public committment thru Buy Fresh/Buy Local :
        In addition, we have a fairly active convivium of the slow food movement here:
