Across the nation, restaurants are raising the sustainability bar, embracing hyper-local sourcing, minimizing food waste, and including more plant-based meals than ever before. While sustainable practices were relegated to internal staff discussions in the past, chefs and restaurateurs now proudly display their eco-conscious efforts.
Eden, a farm-to-table favorite, found a new home on Chicago’s North Side in May 2022. Since the relocation, Eden has renewed its commitment to eco-friendliness, doubling the size of its onsite greenhouse. The urban garden overlooks the Chicago River and provides some of the herbs and produce featured on Eden’s New American-meets-Mediterranean plates. For everything else, the team sources hyper-locally from Midwestern purveyors and farmers, giving them thoughtful shoutouts on the menu; the apples in the restaurant’s pork tagliatelle are picked from the family-run Nichols Farm in Marengo, Illinois, for instance.View the Original Article on OpenTable
