Holidays

Being a hotel restaurant we have the advantage of opening for three meal periods every day of the year. Through rain, sleet and snow we follow the intrepid postman in our perseverance, providing hospitality to everyone walking in our front doors. Because we’re available everyday we look forward to the holiday season knowing that it’s an opportunity to go above and beyond the usual expectations of a restaurant. From decorating to inventing playful new dishes that riff on family favorites, our entire staff takes pride in hosting families that are looking for a less stressful dining experience as well as weary travelers who aren’t able to be with their loved ones on a special day. If you find yourself in need of a little warmth, hospitality, or just a glass of wine and home cooked meal, we’re here for you. Happy holidays

Feast 2014

What a blessing to have been able to host not only the public stars of Feast, the chefs and media darlings that spent a week of hedonistic pleasure in our city, but the quiet multitudes that worked behind the scenes making sure everything stayed organized and everyone was fed. Chef Matt demonstrated our casual approach to “High Comfort,” the theme for a marquee event hosted in the Nines Hotel, with flat iron pastrami dipped in melted asiago cheese and served on a stick; and the entire culinary team executed a flawless media brunch that left many bloggers questioning their ability to partake in the lunch event. (Don’t worry, they all managed to make enough room.) It was a pleasure to host visionary chefs and show them what we’re working on here as well as have a chance to sit down and listen to their vision of the future. Forging lasting relationships is why we do what we do and we’re happy for such a wonderful opportunity.

 

 

National Fried Chicken Day at Urban Farmer

Urban Farmer Chicken & Waffles

Over the past weekend, in our post BBQ, beer and illegal fireworks haze we celebrated another American holiday: National Fried Chicken Day. Though it may have less patriotic roots, July 6th is a date well celebrated in the waning phases of Independence Day. In exalting a dish that was brought by immigrants and perfected by the South, we are continuing to honor the similarities that make us uniquely American. Here at the Farm, we were delighted to serve variations on the classic fried chicken all day.

For brunch we used buttermilk batter to create a benedict that that provided a nice salty crunch to counteract the tangy béarnaise.

For lunch and dinner Chef de Cuisine, Chris Starkus, played with the idea of chicken and waffles by utilizing fresh, local blueberries and a homemade truffle honey.
