Seeking a Restaurant Serving Free Range, Local Beef

lovessushi Mar 25, 2012 05:46 PM

Any restaurant in the city that states where its beef originates from? I don't mean Sysco/Tyson cr&p - I mean local, free range, grass fed, idyllic country meadow cows - lol

Even better would be somewhere that I could get steak too :)

      @scunge - love this, thank you. I will give them a call. Love their way of farming!

        So Creekstone Farms is not pasture raised, but seems much better than the average factory farmed poop that most restaurants use. Interesting stuff...

      Most "good" restaurants do. Anywhere that sources from Pat LaFrieda, which is many, many restos.

        Hmm...thank you - but after looking at their website, with the exception of the organic meat, I don't see where they state the source of their beef. Maybe I'm missing it?

          I'm confused by what you mean. Pat LaFrieda is a supplier to many restaurants. Not a restaurant.

            Yes, I know they're a supplier, thanks. But I'd expect that they would state where the meat is purchased from - what farm/company, etc. A supplier could be sourcing from anywhere-
