We pride ourselves on the use of farm-fresh, local and sustainable ingredients and years of fine-tuned culinary experience. We focus on delivering hospitality excellence to you, our premier clients. When dining in one of our locations, you can be assured that what you're eating is thoughtfully made and produced fresh daily.
We source seasonal ingredients from farms in New York like Yorkmont Farm, New Jersey's Hepworth Farms and Illinois's Windy City Harvest. We believe in a relationship with local farmers, not only to ensure you enjoy foods' flavors at their peak but, also because we believe in supporting campaigns that reward the efforts of farmers and laborers.
At Restaurant Associates we recognize that sourcing local simply isn't enough. We source proteins from suppliers that promote humane welfare of farm animals and foods that are produced with minimal use or free of chemicals and antibiotics. We purchase our seafood from a sustainable supply chain and strive to reduce the eco-footprint of our foodservice operations by practicing sustainable cooking and waste methods.
With a talented culinary team led by Regional Executive Chef, Jon Polcyn as well as Lincoln Harbor's Executive Chef, Christopher Metzler and 1285 Executive Chef Dariusz Nalt of our food is made just for you with thought, care and passion.
