Local Organic Backlash

Michael Bauer defends the growing sentiment that some restaurants might be are full of it when they advertise themselves as hyper-local: "It's true that some restaurants take poetic license when they talk about their locally and sustainably produced food. Generally not everything can come from their back door, so many restaurants have to make decisions that give diners what they want and still fit their philosophy, which is where the sustainable part may come in." Bonus sustainable fodder, courtesy of one Eric Ripert: "Organic and sustainable doesn't mean that your product is good." [BauerBlog, Cutlets]
