Eating locally-grown foods at home is one thing. Eating locally out is another.
Husband and I try to patronize locally-owned businesses as much as possible, but it’s not always easy.
Using our funky restaurant-finding app on the iPhone, Urbanspoon, we decided on the Whistle Stop Cafe. Their menu says they buy locally as much as possible and serve some local brews. To start, we ordered the fried green tomatoes. More of a novelty than anything, they were a pleasant way to start the meal. Service was good and friendly but very slow. But no matter, the band was great! And sitting outside on a warm but slightly breezy January evening in Florida is no hardship.
My main course featured fish tacos. Excellent! Served with rice and beans, it was a filling and delicious meal (if a bit monochromatic).
