Cozy local food restaurant, LEED certified and simply gorgeous: @fastvinic #slowfood

The cozy place gets all its food products and wine from Catalonia, so the menu changes with the seasons. On each table is a booklet that portraits each supplier and tells you a little bit about him or her; the guy with the trout, the baker and the cheese maker all seem very nice folk. What I wasn't so convinced about was the packaging of the food , because even if most of it is biodegradable or gets properly recycled, I believe the amount of throw-away items could be reduced or even eliminated. And I really don't agree with serving bottled water , even if it is local, in a place where tapwater is perfectly drinkable if filtered correctly. The food however was incredibly fresh and tasty and is definitely a good alternative for other surrounding fast food places.
