We believe community matters, food matters, and health matters, so we make damn good food that’s good for you, and we hold the space for Central Florida to come together and enjoy it.
Proper & Wild is Chelsie and Jamie Savage’s second of three restaurants in the Orlando area. Our restaurants are founded on the idea that healthy food should be freaking delicious. We are part of a family of restaurants under our parent company, Real Damn Good Food. Our sister restaurants are The Sanctum Cafe in Orlando and The Sanctum Cafe & Juice Bar in Longwood/Altamonte Springs, FL.
We are wildly strategic in how we break the rules of proper cooking to bring you creative combinations even carnivores will love. Our scratch kitchen is chef-driven. That means flavor is at the heart of every healthy meal we plate, juice we squeeze, and cocktail we craft. We make our plant-based meals with farm-fresh, seasonal produce because it tastes better, and we source local and organic wherever we can. You’ll never find hydrogenated oils, food dyes, artificial flavorings or preservatives here, and we always use the freshest ingredients we can find.
Come as you are—yoga pants or cocktail dresses—and stay until you’re full. You won’t regret a single bite.
Here at Proper & Wild, we are committed to sourcing our produce from local growers and farmers. We also source organic produce whenever we can. Proper & Wild focuses on serving plant-centric dishes that are made from farm-fresh, in-season produce because it is bursting with flavor and nutrients. Using fresh produce in our dishes benefits more than our customers’ taste buds; it benefits our neighbors and our larger community, too.
Proper & Wild believes in the importance of being a part of something larger than ourselves. We strive to create healthy, delectable dishes that give back to our community and to nature every single day. That is why our chef-prepared creations are made with organic and cold-pressed oils, organic spices, and organic grains to enhance the rich, juicy flavor of the produce we source from our local partners.
Similarly, every dish at Proper & Wild is crafted without refined flours and sweeteners, preservatives, and artificial dyes because we want the taste of our health promoting foods to be front and center.
These are some of our partners who are helping us make our sustainable food dreams a reality:
Purveyors of fresh, organic and oh-so-pretty produce. But Fleet Farming is about more than just produce. We partner with Fleet Farming because we believe what they believe: that we need to reduce the environmental impact of food production and create a culture of healthy, vibrant ecosystems. We believe in activating and engaging the community in emissions-free, organic farming. And, most of all, we believe that if we are committed to these ideals, then we must support the businesses that are doing something to uphold them.
Growers of soil-sown produce, protectors of real flavor, and believers that we can, in fact, have it all. We partner with Frog Song Organics because they take care of their plants, they take care of the environment, and they take care of their people. They have a big vision and a big purpose, and that’s why it’s not only a pleasure, but an honor, to partner with them.
All tempeh is not created equal. We’ve tried the store bought kind and the homemade kind and the we-made-this-ourselves kind, but we’ve never tried anything like this kind, so it’s the only kind we serve around here. Artie’s entire craft is the making of artisanal tempeh, and it shows in its unmatched quality and flavor. The taste says it all, and that’s why it’s all over our menu.
Providers of local, organic and fresh produce that is grown and harvested by real farmers. Like Sugar Top Farms, we believe that buying local is healthier, cleaner, and safer for everyone involved in the process, including our customers. We partner with Sugar Top Farms so we can use produce that is lovingly and carefully grown for our specific climate, and you can experience the benefits of eating food that is in-season and locally harvested.
Cultivators of juicy, flavorful heirloom and beefsteak tomatoes. Waterkist Farms provides high quality tomatoes, which are grown using hydroponic methods, to local restaurants. And boy does Waterkist Farms know tasty tomatoes because taste in their guiding principle in everything that they do.
Producers of superior quality, farm-fresh milk and cheeses, who use environmentally sustainable practices and state-of-the- art methods. In fact, Dakin Dairy Farms in the only dairy farm in Florida whose products are entirely locally produced. We are proud to partner with Dakin Dairy Farms because we believe that sustainable practices and delicious dairy products can go hand in hand.
The shepherds of cage free and hormone free chickens that lay the best eggs you have ever tasted. Lake Meadow Naturals produces better tasting eggs because their chickens experience better living. We share a passion for clean and humanely produced food with Lake Meadow Naturals, which is why we’re thrilled to offer their local, cage free eggs on our menu.
The bearers of impeccably roasted beans that make us excited to wake up in the morning. They are masters of the perfect cup of coffee, which they achieve by roasting each batch by sight, sound, and smell. All their coffee is roasted to order, so when we pour you a cup from the French press or serve you our crowd-favorite hemp milk latte, you can enjoy it knowing that it hasn’t been sitting on a shelf somewhere for over a decade.
The brewers of the cleanest, crispest kombucha we’ve ever tasted—and we’ve tasted more kombucha than we care to admit. Living Vitalitea is committed to clean, non-GMO, as-natural-as-they-come ingredients. Their kombucha is authentic in both health benefits and flavor. We could go on and on about it, but it would much more exciting if you came in to try it.
