Naming the Source

You wouldn't just order a bottle of "red" wine, so why just order a "beef" burger? Sources matter, so it's a positive development that several Seattle restaurants have begun naming their source—i.e., including farm or supplier names alongside menu items. For example, Lecosho's Carlton Farms Pork Chop, Uneeda Burger's Whidbey Island Crescent Harbor 100% Wagyu Kobe Grass-Fed Beef (a mouthful in more ways than one), Golden Beetle's St. Jude's Albacore Tuna, Lark's Crispy Liberty Farm Duck Leg . . . hell, Sitka & Spruce even calls out Local Roots Farm Lettuces for its salad! Such designations indicate that the chefs care deeply about the components of their dishes from farm to table. SCOTT HEIMENDINGER
