Start to Finish
From inception to execution, Kennett Restaurant’s entire renovation and operating systems follow the guidelines of The Green Restaurant Association. From our soy based paint, reclaimed furniture, green seal soaps & cleaners, 100% wind power commitment, to our linen, local buying and pest control. We consider all operating facets of our business as an opportunity to demonstrate our commitment to sustainability. In addition, we are proud members of The Sustainable Business Network of Greater Philadelphia.
We source seafood from River & Glen, a purveyor committed to sustainable seafood practices. Specifically, we use line caught striped bass from the North Atlantic, Scottish Salmon and Diver Scallops. Our seafood menu changes on an availability and seasons.
Free-range and grass-fed meat
We use local, free-range chicken from Bell Evans as the producer. We use lamb from Doe Run Dairy, a local sheep-milk dairy. In addition, we use beef products from Creekstone, which are grass fed and raised without antibiotics.
We use organic produce from Savoie Organic Farm and Culton Organics. Dairy is sourced from Dove Song Dairy.
Local & Seasonal
We focus on produce procurement within 150 miles. We purchase a great majority of our produce from local purveyors and individual farmers such as Savoie Organic Farm in NJ and Culton Organics in Lancaster, PA. We source cheeses from South Eastern PA & Southern NJ. In addition, we have a 16 tap beer system and 13 of 16 are locally brewed beers.
We serve micro-filtered tap water. The filters are maintained and recycled by our beverage service company. There is no bottled water available.
