Food Safety Matters
Chef Lenny Russo of Heartland Restaurant

Chef Russo is taking the concept of local sourcing and sustainable operations to a whole new level. Like the fresh elk tenderloins chilling in the cooler or the baskets of parsnips delivered by a nearby farmer, nearly all Heartland’s ingredients come from within a 200-mile radius of the restaurant and market. With specialties including house-canned condiments and house-cured charcuterie, a high degree of precision is required to ensure every item is prepared properly and safely.
