Shoo Fry Adds Breakfast in Rittenhouse

You all know about Shoo Fry, right? It’s like a drinking man’s Nirvana–a place where you can get a burger and a drippy order of classic poutine (or one topped with scrapple, egg and cheddar if you’re feeling it) at 2:59am on a Sunday morning. It’s like the perfect place for a fast lunch when you’re having a crappy day that can only be turned around by carbs, gravy and cheese curds.

This story has been updated.

Sure, it’s easy to find organically grown fruits and veggies at your neighborhood farmers’ market, grocery co-op, and even some supermarkets. But sustainably-raised meat? That’s much harder to find, with few farmers’ market vendors, CSAs, or retailers offering it — and then, it’s almost always frozen.

A handful of new companies that specialize in nontraditional models for supplying pasture-raised meat want to change that.
