It seems that a good philosophy doesn't necessarily equal good food or a good experience. This diner celebrates its commitment to local growers and providers. Unfortunately, this does not translate to a decent place to eat.
I stopped here for lunch and ordered a grilled cheese sandwich and fries, which should be a slam-dunk, but when it arrived it was clear that it wasn't. The bread was dry and seemed old and the sandwich looked and tasted like it had never been on a grill of any kind. The only concession to it being an actual *grilled* cheese was the damp spot of oil in the middle of the bread. The only thing worse than the sandwich was the fries, which were soggy and seemed like they had been in the deep fryer hours beforehand and reheated.
I wish I could say it was made up for the charm of the place (and in theory it should be charming) or the charm of the waitstaff, but it wasn't. A couple of the waitstaff were nice enough, but two of them were loudly complaining about some customers. Also, when I paid at the register, the woman who was giving me my change asked "You don't really want the other two cents, do you?" while she was holding the unbroken roll of pennies in her hand. Bizarre.
I would never eat here again, and wouldn't recommend it to anyone unless you were in the verge of starvation.
