"If it's perishable and not local, I try not to use it," says Jonathan Justus, who opened Justus Drugstore with his wife, Camille Eklof, in 2007. Justus showcases the bounty of the region with a slow-food approach at his small-town eatery, located 20 miles north of Downtown (not far from the airport). The dining room is much more casual than you'd expect from a place that takes three hours to serve dinner, and reservations are a must. For a quicker bite, a less formal menu is offered on the patio during the warmer months.
