While I agree whole-heartedly with Mr. Saran Foer's argument about horrors of factory farming I disagree with his contention that it is impossible to eat out and still avoid factory-farmed meat. Especially in New York City it is possible to find restaurants, such as The Green Table and Savoy, that are very careful about sourcing their meat from farms that have treated their animals humanely.
