Chef Barton Seaver of Hook in Washington DC offered these thoughts to blogfish:
Hook Restaurant is committed to providing an exceptional dining experience with our fresh local produce and sustainably sourced seafood, but also to educating the community about our mission. The menu changes daily to reflect whatever sustainable fish are in season and available so that we can be responsible stewards of the oceans, and by using local farms we're supporting our immediate community. Our eco-friendly practices are merely a reflection of a deeper ideology: the two things that link every human on the planet are food and environment and we cannot live with out either. When our guests leave they have had a fantastic dining experience as well as food for thought, and hopefully we have inspired them to action.
Now here's someone truly committed to sustainability, and doing something real.
