"A gastronome who is not also an environmentalist is an idiot. An environmentalist who is not also a gastronome is, well, sad.."
-- Carlo Petrini, Slow Food
Although excellence in preparation, service and ambiance are required for a restaurant to achieve high accolades, there are clear trends among the world's better restaurants to use wholesome and natural foods, and, as much as possible, to source foods from local wholesome and artisan producers. We are firm supporters of that trend. Look for our symbol, which identifies restaurants that agree with us.
