Farm-to-Table Restaurant to Open in Fort Collins
Good news if you are a fan of Door 222 in Loveland! Jim Edwards, who owns Door 222, has announced plans to open Locality Kitchen and Bar this fall at the former Rustic Oven on E. Harmony Road.
Let's start at the bar. It will feature Colorado craft brews and cocktails made from local liquors and a wine list that will boast 40 to 50 different wines.
The restaurant will capitalize on the popular farm-to-table movement and, according to The Coloradoan will have a 60-seat outdoor patio. Matt Smith, who is the Executive Chef at Loveland's Door 222, will oversee Locality. Dishes will focus on using local ingredients.
What is the Farm-to-Table movement?
It refers to producing food locally and delivering that food to local consumers. The farm-to-table movement has strong advocates in initiatives surrounding organic farming, sustainable agriculture, and community-supported agriculture.
The increase in popularity in the farm-to-table initiative is attributed to the public backlash surrounding GMOs (genetically modified organisms) in our food.
