Each year, the Good Food Media Network, a Denver-based nonprofit, releases a list of 100 or so restaurants around the country that are committed to sustainability and transparency in where their food comes from. The most recent version of the list includes some local names: Indigenous and the three restaurants in the Mattison's portfolio were all recognized, as was Mattison's catering operations.

The list is based on food purchasing data supplied by the restaurants. Good Food works to promote restaurant practices that are good for the environment, as well as farmers, ranchers, fishermen and others who work in the food industry.

Earlier this year, Indigenous chef Steve Phelps was featured on national TV, discussing sustainable aquaculture on CBS This Morning. Mattison's chef Paul Mattison, meanwhile, works with a number of suppliers who follow ethical, sustainable practices.
