Best Localvore Menu
CRITICS, UPSTATE | Home Grown Café
126 E. Main St., Newark, 226-6993
Home Grown Café teams with Lancaster Farm Fresh for weekly deliveries of the farm’s best seasonal crops. Diners see it in fresh daily specials. Home Grown also sources local livestock such as grass-fed and pastured cows. Owners Eric and Sasha Aber have found goodies at the Newark Natural Foods farmers market, and have bought from local mushroom foragers.
CRITICS, DOWNSTATE | Nage
4307 Highway One, Rehoboth Beach, 226-2037
Chef-owner Kevin Reading pioneered the localvore movement in Delaware at Nage. Eggs from Cluckner Farms and bison from Colvine Bison Farm become creations such as—what else?—bison tartare. Produce also comes from all-star growers such as Fifer Orchards, Bob Russell Farms, Hattie’s Garden, Community Organics, and many more.
CRITICS, OVER THE LINE | Sovana Bistro
696 Unionville Road, Kennett Square, Pa., (610) 444-5600
The art at Sovana isn’t on the walls. It’s on the plates. Blend beautifully presented farm-to-table cuisine with a casual, classy atmosphere and you have a winner. Nearby farms are teeming with vegetable gardens, so Sovana’s 100 Mile Menu is impressive, even in winter, when vegetables are cold-stored in the ground. Try the roasted beets.
