Acclaimed South Granville Restaurant Marks Start of a New Season by Adding Lunch Service to Its Signature Lineup of Locally Sourced, Organic Locavore Fare
As spring has sprung, so too has regular lunch service at acclaimed South Granville locavore restaurant Farmer’s Apprentice, which revives its midday menu Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. starting today.
In keeping with Chef/Owner David Gunawan’s steadfast belief in the importance of ecological gastronomy, each entry on the lunch menu at Farmer’s Apprentice comprises exclusively organic and sustainably procured ingredients delivered fresh daily to its door from local farms, pastures and providers.
“Whether it’s for a quick bite or a chance to linger with friends, we’re pleased to reintroduce our lunch service,” says Gunawan. “It’s another opportunity for our team to not only showcase the local and organic ingredients found in our community, but to also inspire our guests to follow the same principles by supporting food providers in their own backyard.”
