A few weeks ago, Michael Pollan, foodie and New York Times bestselling author, visited Fayetteville to speak at the Walton Arts Center. While he was in town, he must have sampled the local fare, because in an interview with the New York-based shop and blog Lot 18, he said, "There’s always one local restaurant that gets it. In Fayetteville, Arkansas, there’s a restaurant called Greenhouse Grille, where they buy grass-fed beef, pastured poultry, vegetables from local farmers. They keep a seasonal menu. And it’s become the locus of the food movement in that community."

Pollan is the man behind the, "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants," directive. He's written seven books, but he's best known for "Food Rules: An Eater’s Manual," "In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto," "The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals" and "The Botany of Desire: A Plant’s-Eye View of the World." Here at the Arkansas Times, we already knew Greenhouse Grille is a big deal. But it's always nice when a food celeb takes public note, as well.
