“We are not a restaurant that only focuses on local but it’s where we start. We are passionate about being a positive business in our community. We practice seasonal cooking in the kitchen and bar, give thought to our sourcing practices, and give back to our local community in a way that hopefully inspires others to do the same.
“We are a ninety percent trash-free restaurant. We recycle all glass, cardboard, plastics, aluminium, paper, and oil. We also compost. We have changed our buying strategies in order to compost as many things as possible, including straws made from corn, to-go containers made from sugar cane pulp, unbleached paper products, and more. We also have gardens in the back that we use for herbs, onions, peppers, tomatoes, carrots, turnips, and radishes, which we utilize year-round.”

Behind a brick storefront, Lockeland Table is a true neighborhood restaurant where a wood-fired pizza oven anchors the kitchen, familiar faces gather in the bar and lounge, and the nightly “community hour“ raises funds for the nearby public school. Children are welcome, and so is conversation, be it catching up with neighbors or more meaningful chats about an often broken food-supply system. Through partnerships with local farms, Lockeland Table aims to stimulate the local economy and reduce its carbon footprint.
