From Ethical Gastropubs to Pitch Black Dinners

 - Jan 8, 2013
Social enterprises for fine dining aren't too ubiquitous -- yet. At the same time, however, if you're a real foodie, some of the restaurants you frequent may be social enterprises and you don't even know it.

The restaurants featured here take a different approach than your typical community cafe co-op. In many ways, the restauranteurs and entrepreneurs behind these ideas are attempting to change the way organic food is perceived, that is, kick it up a notch or two.

Notably, many -- though not all -- of the restaurants are located in and around London, United Kingdom, where the industry is at the forefront of fusing social entrepreneurship with local, organic (and expensive) brunches, lunches and dinners.

From dining in the dark to ethical hotel restaurants in Cambodia, social enterprises for fine dining will make you think twice about your next reservation.
