Slow Food East End is pleased to announce that
Love Lane Kitchen in Mattituck, NY, has been recently awarded the chapter’s prestigious Snail of Approval.
The Snail of Approval recognizes businesses that incorporate the Slow Food ideals of good, clean, and fair food into all aspects of their food operation. When customers choose a restaurant that has been awarded the Snail of Approval, they know they are consuming quality food that is mostly local, sustainably raised and grown, and delicious. The mission of the East End Chapter of Slow Food is to spread the word about the health, economic, and environmental advantages of eating locally and seasonally. The Snail of Approval program supports this mission.
Love Lane Kitchen’s owner Carolyn Iannone is committed to sourcing as many fresh and seasonal ingredients as possible from local providers in addition to their vegetable and herb garden. Both Carolyn and Chef Corey Guastella draw inspiration for their menus from what is available. Approximately 90% of the dinner menu, which changes weekly, is farm to table in Spring, Summer, and Fall. Love Lane Kitchen also serves perennial breakfast and lunch favorites 7 days a week. Their wine list features Long Island varieties exclusively.
Carolyn’s passion about Slow Food’s mission of good, clean, and fair food is evident by her own philosophy and practices by offering quality dining at affordable prices and forging solid relationships with her providers, staff, and customers. Love Lane Kitchen provides food and gift cards to local charities and offers community cooking classes on Thursday evenings in the winter taught by Chef Cory.
Love Lane Kitchen joins The North Fork Table & Inn, Southold; Nick & Toni’s, East Hampton; Noah’s, Greenport; 18 Bay Restaurant, Shelter Island; and Estia’s Little Kitchen, Sag Harbor as restaurants having earned the Snail of Approval.
