Why Our Food Is Different!
Buying locally provides quality assurance right from the farmer. There is no substitute for standing face to face, or talking regularly, with the men and women who grow our food. By
staying local, we receive advice, products unavailable to others, boost
our local economy, protect farmland and ensure environment standards. Our CoolEatz restaurants make a difference by
using food and wine raised, harvested and produced in our
We support and use as many organic ingredients as possible. We have found that products raised without using petrochemicals, artificial coloring, growth stimulants, antibiotics or pesticides agree with both our palate and sensibility.
Our food is flavor driven. Following this ambition, our recipes and menus draw upon the seasonal bounty of local farms, ranches, dairies and fisheries. In the springtime, asparagus, peas, strawberries, cherries and lovely baby greens might be woven into your menu along with tender lamb or local fish running wild in the Pacific Ocean. Summer is easy with local organic chicken, glorious heirloom tomatoes, sweet corn and mouth watering fruit will adorn your table. Autumn stirs a desire for comforting foods, light yet hearty in nature, peppers, eggplant, nuts and dried fruit compotes show up on our menus. As the chill of winter sets in, you can almost smell the mouth-watering dishes comprised of braised meats, apples, beets, potatoes and savory greens. Delicious food is our goal and we have found that a centerpiece
of seasonal food is a sure way to get there.
Sustainability links our love of food with respect for the environment; we strive to preserve local and global cuisines and the earth that generates them. Our sustainable practices extend from the kitchen to waste management where we generate nearly no landfill.
