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 Festivals are an opportunity for our guests to enjoy the freshest foods and produce in the sublime beauty of our farms, the true treasures of our state.

Sunday, June 19th at Rosedale Farms and Vineyards, we'll host a traditional New England Lobster Bake featuring Chef Steve Michalewicz of Max Catering and Events, the Connecticut Restaurant Association's 2016 winner for Best Caterer. It just so happens to be Father's Day so bring the family, enjoy live music, and crack a few claws.
