Since its 2013 opening, national kudos have been rolling in for High Street on Market in Philadelphia. Diners can grab a seat at one of the small rustic tables or enjoy a communal experience while savoring the in-house, fresh-baked artisan breads and pastries; hearty sandwiches; garden-fresh salads or handmade pastas; small plates; craft beers and progressive cocktails.

One pressing issue in America is food waste, and Old City's High Street on Market wants to talk about it over dinner.

Monday, Feb. 11, the restaurant will host the Odd Bits and Misfits Dinner. It's pay-what-you-wish and starts at 7 p.m.

According to High Street, the dinner will "showcase creative ideas and food products that are recycled, upcycled, underappreciated and environmentally friendly."
