Mattison’s serves Good Food!

We are excited to announce that we have been recognized by Good Food 100 as one of only two restaurants in the area and one of only five in the entire state of Florida, to receive this recognition denoting Mattison’s as a leader in the area of sustainably sourced menu items.

According to the Good Food 100 website, “As ingredient transparency increasingly becomes the most important item on any menu, the Good Food 100 program seeks to redefine how chefs and restaurants are viewed and valued. Good Food 100 Restaurants™ is a badge of trust that educates eaters and recognizes chefs and restaurants that are transparent with their purchasing and sustainable business practices. Founded by food industry veteran Sara Brito, Good Food 100 moves the restaurant industry forward by underscoring how chefs and restaurants are building a better food system and supporting state, regional, and national good food economies.”

Brito adds, “Good food is more than just taste. Truly good food is beneficial for every link in the food chain. We want eaters to appreciate that and learn to evaluate chefs and restaurants for their commitment to transparency, sustainability and their overall impact on good food economies,” said Brito. “Eaters look to ratings, lists and awards to help navigate the proliferation of food choices. Good Food 100 Restaurants is a game changer, shifting away from recognition based on opaque standards and subjective criteria to recognition based on objective standards and transparent criteria defined by economic impact.”

Chef Paul Mattison states, “We are honored to be featured on the 2019 Good Food 100 list. Being included on this prestigious and exclusive list justifies our daily committment to sustainable business practices that include working with small family farms that grow and produce all natural, antibiotic and hormone free products, using environmentally friendly materials, and seeking out partnerships and collaborations with like minded regional and local culinary suppliers.”
