Last week wichcraft jumped on the know-where-your-food-comes-from bandwagon by replacing the plain ol numbers on its table cards (doled out to customers so servers can locate them) with semi-campy descriptions of how its food is sourced. Were glad we can now bite into a BLT (served only during BLT season) knowing that the applewood-smoked bacon was custom-made by DArtagnan and the Ozark Mountain Pork Cooperative, and the heirloom tomatoes come from Eckerton Hill Farm in Pennsylvania. As you can see by reading the cards, there are other fun facts: The pastrami comes from the West Coast (via Davids Old World), the jelly is made from greenmarket fruit that [our chef] just cant resist, and the tuna comes from our own Primizie Foods (hence mercury levels so low theyre often untraceable). One quibble: Whats up with referring to soda as pop? Did Jersey boy Colicchio pick this up from Danny Meyer when he was at Gramercy Tavern?
