DIY Down the Shore: Better Than A G+T

Screen Shot 2014-07-14 at 2.00.40 PMFor the past couple weeks, we’ve been talking to a variety of Philly chefs and bartenders, asking them what they bring with them to eat and drink when they go down the shore.

Burgeoning Restaurant Empire at the Shore


There’s a burgeoning restaurant empire down the shore right now called Bread+Butter Restaurant Group. You may know of a few of their restaurants: Stone Harbor’s Quahog’s Seafood Shack, the attached Taco Shop and The Red Store in Cape May. What you might not have known, though, is that they now have their very own farm, Fincas del Mar (which Google translates to “marine farms”). Once full harvest has been reached at the farm, each restaurant location will purvey roughly 75% of their produce from the farm for their set seasonal menus, with the exception of exotic or non-local produce.
