Since I am in Boston, we're not really getting the brunt of the storm (unlike my family and friends in Philly and NYC), but we still got to leave work early! So during my afternoon off, I thought I would take advantage of the storm slowing everything down and post about some sustainable restaurants that I went to during #funemployment (those were the good old days).
17th and Sansom, Philadelphia
My parents took me to Square 1682 in Philly before I left for Argentina. They had been raving about it for weeks and they rarely get that excited about a restaurant, so I knew it was going to be pretty good. I had to agree, the food was truly fantastic. It was also restaurant week, so we did it on the cheap. My mom got a butternut squash soup that was heavenly, and my lamb short ribs were seriously to.die.for.
Square 1682 is Philadelphia's first LEED-certified green eatery and bar. Chef Guillermo Tellez has a strong commitment to sourcing local, organic, and sustainable ingredients for many of his recipes. He also alters the menu frequently to feature the most seasonal ingredients. The restaurant also uses Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch program to source their fish.
