When we say it, we mean it! Once produce is picked from the field, it is on a refrigerated truck on its way to our restaurants in 24-hours. If that’s not fresh, I don’t know what is.
We have our vendors, farmers, and purveyors to thank for the freshness and crispness of the products we serve you. And with a growing number of consumers concerned about where their food is grown and sourced, we thought profiling a few of our providers would demonstrate just how passionate we are about them and the work they do. Watch for these profiles throughout the year on this blog and in the restaurants.
The first featured farmer is Stuart& Norman Gilfenbian from Eclipse Berry Farm in Oxnard, California where we get our juicy and very sweet grape tomatoes. Did you know grape tomatoes didn’t even exist 14 years ago? Well, we didn’t either. We have Stuart & Norman to thank for that. They helped create them! The Gilfenbain family puts their stamp of approval on every crop, ensuring the sweetest, juiciest and firmest grape tomatoes you’ll ever taste.
This kind of care and integrity is what we look for in all our growers. So, next time you bite into a sweet grape tomato,we hope you’ll think of them, and us!
