m

I am new to the area and I am trying to find restaurants that offer grass fed beef from local farmers and not factory beef. i have learned i can purchase it myself at the Crescent City Farmers Market and Whole Foods, but I can't seem to find a listing of restaurants. Please help me. If you know of any resources for this kind of information it would be so helpful.

Thank you!

    Try La Boca on Fulton St...all grass fed and NOT from factory farms. As per their website: "Certified Angus Beef, Painted Hills Organic beef from Oregon, Snake River American Kobe, local cuts from grass fed Whispering Pines organic farm north of the city, to name a few."
    Here's the link to their site: http://www.labocasteaks.com/index.html

    Also, chefscollaborative.org is helpful...under their local member search link, you can enter in zip codes to view restaurants in any US area serving sustainable cuisine. Those in our area are Bayona, Cochon, Herbsaint and Brennan's.

          You mean Kobe as in from Japan? LOL good luck. Wagyu maybe or that mixed beef from Washington with the odd forgetable name...but Kobe? No Way...Kobe style, Kobe fakes, sure. I am fairly sure that is not available outside of the relevant prefecture in Japan - and you ain't gonna find it in NOLA. We just had real Japanese Wagyu in Vegas at Cut last month...$160 a steak. Worth every penny, but not an every day steak.

          Hey does anyone know anything about the Road Food event in March. We are planning to be there, but need some info and insight....I know... need to post separately...God we love eating in NOLA!!

          The cured meats at A Mano are all pasture raised pork and gras-fed beef, they also run grass-fed steak specials from time to time
