At the core of our culinary philosophy is a deep appreciation for a “Taste of Place”: We believe that food should speak eloquently of its provenance--of the soil, the climate and the people who nurture it. We regard the farmers and artisans who produce our food as partners in the creation of a great culinary experience. We forge personal relationships with the area’s family farms and consistently source from them and feature their products on our menus.
We strive to educate our staff and guests about the hard work and artistry that go into growing food. Our chefs hold cooking demonstration at the Princeton Public Library and go to schools to teach children. We created a blog, PrincetonEats.org dedicated to educating people about local food.
We support community organizations that celebrate local food such as the Suppers Programs or The Princeton Farmers Market. We hold an annual Farm-to-Table fundraiser benefiting our local watershed and many other benefits to support our community.
We believe that a strong local food system is key to the health of our families, our environment, our community and our economy.
