Philly restaurants make the humane league

The World Society for the Protection of Animals launched a database ( that features more than 150 restaurants in 15 U.S. cities that serve humanely raised meat and dairy products that have not been factory-farmed.

Nine in the Philadelphia area made the cut as a WSPA Humane Restaurant:

Bar Ferdinand, Bistro 7, Fork, James, Monk's Café, Restaurant Alba in Malvern, Southwark, Tinto, and White Dog Café.

WSPA says its experts checked menus to identify meat, dairy, and egg products branded as “Pasture Raised,” “USDA Organic,” “American Humane Certified,” “Animal Welfare Approved” or “Certified Humane."
