The mantra of Paul Martin’s is “Eat organic. Believe in sustainable. Buy local. Love fresh.” Restaurateurs Brian Bennett and Paul Fleming developed the concept for the first restaurant in Roseville, Calif., forging relationships with innovative local farmers, 80 percent of whom are located in California. The restaurant now has locations in El Segundo and Irvine, Calif., and continues to expand its list of local, sustainable and organic vendors, and is an active supporter of PlacerGROWN, a non-profit organization formed to assist local farmers in marketing their products.
