Small Business Supporters Spotlight

Small Business Supporters

Businesses choosing alternative paths for commerce that respect and invest in the wellbeing of our shared communities and resources are changing the future of food and farming. Slow Food USA recognizes these allies of the Slow Food movement and their commitment to good, clean and fair values.


We are a whiskey bar and Cajun-Creole kitchen. My restaurant company has been at the forefront of the slow food/local/sustainable movement since 1995 when I opened my first restaurant, Mr. Friendly's New Southern Cafe. I am currently an advisory member of our local Slow Food board, as well as a Chefs Collaborative Local Leader.

Luna Restaurant

Open since 2014, we are passionate about fresh, local Italian-style food in Kamuela on the Big Island of Hawaii. We support our local farmers and fishers and ranchers. Our food is 'real' food that we make from scratch, not out of boxes or bags of pre-mixed fake ingredients. We are proud supporters of Slow Food USA!

The Bindery Denver

At The Bindery, you'll find elegant dining that accompanies an urban marketplace.
