LOCAL | SUSTAINABLE | CONNECTICUT GROWN
We start with the Farmers. They tell us what is at peak perfection each day and we build our menus around that day’s harvest. Our Chef to Farm dinner series is an opportunity for our guests to enjoy the freshest foods and produce in the sublime beauty of our celebrated farms.
Your evening begins with a reception then you’ll head out for a tour of the farm to see the fields and learn about the farm’s history, operations, and products. Your tour concludes in the tented area where tables dressed in white linen and candlelight offer a view of the al fresco kitchen. Each dinner is cooked from scratch and showcases that day’s best produce. The ingredients are sourced daily from local farmers, ranchers, and fishermen.
Our menus vary and are dependent on the day's harvest and the inspiration of the Chef. Prepare yourself for an incredible dining experience with the most local, fresh and flavorful foods available.
How sweet it is! On Thursday, July 21st, Chef Hunter Morton of Max's Oyster Bar will revel in the glory of July: the Corn Harvest. The sun-warmed corn tosses its silk and beckons to you from the fields. Sweet corn, pone, hominy, whatever you call it, we call it the golden days of summer. Enjoy a multitude of courses as we pay homage to the golden goddess of the reaping.
