Rapoport’s Quality Sourcing Standards
Here at Rapoport’s Restaurant Group we strive to exceed our guest’s expectations when it comes to food quality and we believe it starts from the ground, up (literally). Below you will find a detailed glimpse about some of the ingredients that go into our dishes at any one of our locations. From the frequent local farms we work with and the custom made proprietary blends to the Florida-based services we partner with.
Did you know... Rapoport’s Restaurant Group was asked by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services to be the VERY FIRST restaurant group in the entire state to roll out the Fresh From Florida menu initiative. Fresh From Florida aims to encourage diners to buy locally-sourced food. The Fresh From Florida logo is included on our menus next to a dish that has at least two items grown in Florida.
The seasonal Florida farms that we are receiving produce and meat from include:
Pero Family Farms (Del Rey)- snipped green beans, peppers, mini sweet pepper, baby cucumbers
