Seeking a Restaurant Serving Free Range, Local Beef

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 :)

Thanks!

    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-

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