Farm-to-Table in Dallas: Company Café

By Elisha Neubauer

As consumers become more aware of what foods they put into their bodies, restaurants have had to adapt or suffer. In Dallas, one restaurant was ahead of the movement. Company Café opened its doors to the public in 2011. A leader in the farm-to-table trend, they opted to only offer fresh, natural menu options- with the majority of the ingredients being collected from local vendors.

Offering menu options such as grass-fed beef, bison, and gluten-free desserts, Company Café has a way of making healthy and natural taste like a decadent indulgence. Jeff Wells of the Café says that several of their menu items have developed a following. "The Deep Bowl was the first. It's our homemade sweet potato hash, sautéed grass-fed beef topped with two eggs and avocado- it's delicious," Wells says. "The Johnny Rooster is also very popular. It's gluten-free fried chicken with pancakes, served with bacon jalapeño marmalade." Online reviewers on sites such as Yelp!, TripAdvisor, and UrbanSpoon have given the unique eatery 4 out of 5 stars. Calling it, "Exciting for the taste buds," and, "Awesome, clean comfort food," these reviewers all agree that they will be returning.

Company Café, while providing local, natural foods to the public, has some positive side effects for the community as well. "By supporting local vendors, less energy is used in shipping while also nurturing the local economy," Wells claims. "Every year, new local vendors become available; so the trend is definitely sticking. We all win by having local food and cleaner air. I can only imagine how huge the local food market will be in the next ten years."

With easy-to-find locations, delicious menu items, and local, small business support, it's no wonder that Company Café has been exceeding expectations in the Dallas community. Since the moment they opened their doors, they have continued to build a solid customer base and expand their farm-to-table business. Every item on the menu is offered around the clock, and that includes the beer, wine, and cocktails selection. As they say, "It's five o'clock somewhere." And no matter your dietary choices- vegan, vegetarian, or gluten free- you'll find something delicious on the menu.
