Respond to Review of CLOSED: Flow Bar and Restaurant
Review: Hi! First, Let me introduce myself. I'm Sara, co-owner of 14 Acre Farm in Summit Hill, PA. My husband Kevin, together with our farm partner Albert, are in charge of the food at Flow. Harpo, I would like to extend my sincerest apologies for your miserable experience. Being a new restaurant always has kinks to work out. As for the cursing, there is absolutely no excuse for that kind of behavior. Our kitchen prides itself on being professional and relaxed with a good employee relationship. My only guess for what happened was a poorly-timed Gordon Ramsay impression. I assure you no such antics will happen again. As for the food, I would like to explain the menu. We are a farm-to-table restaurant, with the majority of our food coming from local, sustainable farms. It's true, there are a lot of non-vegetarian items on our menu, especially in the Winter, when local produce is scarce to come by. While this may be a put-off for some vegetarians, it is a bonus when dining with non-vegetarian friends and family. Now that Spring is here, we have more options to choose from. Don't see something you like? Please feel free to request a vegan or vegetarian option from the kitchen; they would be happy to show off their creative side when it comes to local vegetarian cuisine. As for the tofu- the vast majority of US soy products (Vitasoy and all of its various subsidiaries) feature soybeans grown in Australia. For any food we're going to showcase at Flow, we try to stay within 100 miles of the restaurant. I hope that you'll be willing to shake your negative impression of us and try us again on your next visit into town.
