Farm to Table Dining Spotlight


The Bedford, a farm-to-table restaurant, which is aptly named for it’s location on Bedford and North 10th in Williamsburg provides an interesting locavore dining experience set in an interior with equally cool ambiance. Simple clean lines in the dining area and a mix of brick, marble and wood provide a wonderful backdrop in which to sit back and leisurely enjoy a meal.

The Chef, Blake Joyal, who has a passion for organic ingredients, spends his time whipping up an ever-changing menu of unique dishes, all priced under $25.

A review from NBC New York “Around Town” noted “Sommelier Michael Coll consulted on The Bedford’s organic and bio-dynamic wine list. Small batch experimental bottles were chosen from well-known vineyards resulting in a list that is both affordable — and exclusive.”

In further detail the review went on to rave about Bedford’s back bar, described as a “wooden wonderland that serves up craft beer, fancy seasonal cocktails, old standbys and¬†hosts a¬†bar menu offering up vittles that range from mussels in coconut lime broth to a black kale Caesar salad.”

The green market trend has been a growing trend in New York’s culinary scene over the past several years. Brooklyn hot spots such as Flatbush Farms, Egg, The Farm on Adderley are just a handful of organic, farm to table options that come to mind. It’s becoming more common for us to find fine dining and organic farm to table menus not being mutually exclusive concepts- and that’s a great thing.
