monavano Posted November 10, 2006 Share Posted November 10, 2006 If your from Philadelphia, or just know it well, you've probably heard of the White Dog Cafe in University city. A lovely and large townhome (200 seats), it is made intimate by it's many nooks and crannies and worn yet warm wooden floors. It's founder, owner and resident, Judy Wicks, has announced she is moving on and will turn the restaurant over. I'm posting this because even if you've never been there, you may be interested to learn about Ms. Wicks and her uncomprimising means of bringing food to your plate in the most ethical and earth- conscious ways possible. She has been a beacon for food sustainability, fair trade, eco-friendly practices and social responsibility for 24 years. The restaurant's mission has always been the aformentioned goals of Ms. Wicks, first and foremost. The food is second, but always solid. It's a wonderful overall experience though, and should be on travel agendas should you find yourself in the City of Brotherly Love. I'm looking forward to reaquainting myself (window table in the piano room)with the WDC when the new and hopefully more food driven leadership is in place. Meanwhile, I'll comfort myself with the cooking. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
