Forage: Soy & Coca-Cola Steak, Broccoli and Succotash

It's time for another installment of Free Lunch, "Where You're the Reviewer."

This week we treated Felicia Friesema to Forage in Silver Lake. Felicia is a great advocate for local and sustainable food—blogger, market columnist for the LA Weekly and a certified UC Cooperative Extension Master Food Preserver.

It was our pleasure to invite Felicia to this trailblazing eatery that she had been meaning to try and with which she has so much in common.


Forage emphasizes their relationship to local farmers and has been at the forefront of serving food by urban growers. Felicia's suggestion that she review the food at Forage made a lot of sense.

The menu at Forage emphasizes local growers and foragers.

She ordered a combination from Forage's menu that included one small protein and two sides. Her selections were soy and Coca-Cola marinated flank steak, Gloria's Broccoli and summer succotash.

Forage offers a varied menu that's seasonal. The decor is minimalist, but their ambitions are nothing but. It's an ideal place for people who are concerned with eating well, being healthy and doing something for the local community. Here's a small sample of other dishes being served that day.
