There aren't a lot of things that can get me outside of this city's limits on a weeknight, however great food somehow always seems to do the trick. I recently ventured over to Newton to visit the new Farmstead Table and let's just say the small farm-to-table newbie located across the street from Newton Station is killing it with their fresh menu, inviting ambience and incredibly gracious staff. At the helm of which is Chef Chad Burns, who thoughtfully selects every ingredient they use to create a beautifully rustic and seasonal menu. Check out some of our favorite dishes below and don't wait long to reserve a seat, this hidden gem won't stay hidden for long.


Roast Duck Breast - Sweet potato, farm carrots, whole grains, cider reduction


Roasted Golden Beet Carpaccio - Sherry Gastrique, goat cheese, pine nuts, arugula


House Cured Salmon Lox - Potato Skins, Capers, Parsley, Lemon, crème fraiche


Mushroom Risotto - Foraged and cultivated mushrooms, sweet dumpling squash braising greens, sherry reduction
