Local hottie Barton Seaver, executive chef at Hook, is interviewed today on TreeHugger. His Georgetown restaurant serves responsibly-sourced seafood and local products. Seaver, formerly of Cafe St. Ex, opened Hook last year.
Reviews of the new restaurant have been mixed (I personally have never eaten at Hook) but Seaver certainly has been doing his part to get the word out about sustainable and locally sourced ingredients. A peek at his menu definitely made my mouth water. Sablefish with smoky lentils, cranberry-red win sauce, and braised mushrooms. Yum.
