“Central to Dick’s Kitchen is its owner’s discovery that grass-fed beef is much healthier.
It’s leaner, has more vitamins, and is higher in omega-3s, the good kind of fat.”
- Portland Tribune
Dick’s Kitchen began as an attempt to create delicious diner food that takes into account the nutritional and dietary needs of owner Richard Satnick.
While researching the role that diet plays in inflammation and other metabolism-related disorders, Satnick encountered the Paleolithic Diet, a regimen based on aligning our eating habits with an understanding of the evolution of human physiological and ecological constraints.
The new field of Evolutionary Nutrition has spawned several diets and a growing awareness in the public that “eating like a caveman” (and cavewoman) could have many benefits. Some of these benefits intersect with the burgeoning vegan and gluten-free movements, diets that reduce the intake of processed foods, sugar, fat and even dairy products.
Unfortunately, there are virtually no eateries in this country that take these needs into account in a systematic way, while still delivering mouthwatering burgers and other delicious diner fare. Dick’s Kitchen, perhaps the country’s first Stone Age Diner, embraces these challenges by offering modestly priced and delicious fare that will leave you feeling nourished and happy.
