An eco-conscious newcomer to Fairmount's food scene opened its doors last week with a name revealing the grub spot's commitment to conscious menu offerings. Fare Restaurant at 2028 Fairmount Ave has us excited for the future of Philly's quickly expanding sustainable restaurant world.
The restaurant, which opened its doors to the public on May 26th, is making sure that eco-conscious and organic dining is green from the kitchen to the table.
The construction of the restaurant aims to have a low environmental impact while still being stylish. In addition, off-premise composting will limit the building's waste. The menu, made up of “Smalls,” Salads and “Mains,” uses 100 percent organic ingredients sourced as locally as possible, including Fare’s own outdoor garden. Offerings include:
- · cauliflower and millet mash with shiitake sauce
- · pink peppercorn raw cashew “cheese” with sunflower sprout salad
- · wild mushroom cake with asparagus salsa, carrot cake with edamame hummus
As you can see, vegetarian and vegan options are plentiful and even the heartiest main entrees are under $25.
However, you won't want to stop at the food. The restaurant also offers bio-dynamic wines, organic liquors, and fresh organic juice. And, if you are only in the mood for a glass of thirst-quenching H2O, Fare offers still or sparkling water that is filtered in-house for no charge.
You can learn more about Fare's dedication to local, organic and eco-friendly lifestyles on their website, which features regular ramblings, blog-style, on conscious lifestyle choices by Fare's owners.
