Fodor's Expert Review Flora's Field Kitchen
Gloria and Patrick Greene's Flora's Field Kitchen is an alfresco dining experience that exemplifies farm to table. Flora's is built right in the center of the self-sustaining "Flora Farm." It's a charming oasis featuring a restaurant, gift shop, cooking school, organic market, and culinary cottages (private homes), all under the Flora Farm brand. Meals are homemade including produce and meat (chicken and pork) grown on the property and bread baked on-site. Wholly organic meals are served family style at communal tables, and the generous portions include favorites like fried chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy, massive pork chops fired in the wood-burning oven, beet carpaccio laced with fromage blanc, raddish ravioli, and a selection of pizzas and seasonal salads. Even the sausages served with sweet potato chips are homemade. The adjacent Farm Bar serves unique takes on classic cocktails delivered in mason jars, like the Farm Julep (watermelon juice with basil, mint, and rum). Flora's is a wonderful learning experience for family by day and a romantic spot for couples by night. There's live music nightly at 6:30 and cooking classes Tuesday and Friday from 10:30 to 1:30 pm (cost $50 includes lunch).
