Always good to see restaurants use local foods. That way diners get the freshest and best tasting fruits and veggies. Noted with thanks.

This is the way it should be. I've been in so many cities and towns in the States. The main drag is all shops and every fourth one seems to be a fast food joint. Food quality is one thing from the 50s and 60s that I would love to bring back. There's nothing like fresh produce from the local farms.
