Farm-to-table mentor chef

Greg Baxtrom of Olmsted in Brooklyn

We’re honoured to have internationally recognized farm-to-table Chef, Greg Baxtrom, to kick things off for us by hosting a dinner with some of our favourite local Chefs, to inspire and encourage the movement here. Greg has years of experience working in some of the world’s best kitchens. Famous establishments like Alinea, Per Se, Atera. More recently he was at Dan Barber’s, Blue Hill at Stone Barns and Lysverket in Norway. In May 2016, Greg and his “farmer/horticulturist” business partner, Ian Rothman, opened Olmsted in the heart of Brooklyn, near Prospect Park. This is where he has truly combined his formal training in creating thoughtfully elegant dishes with his deep respect for agriculture. The vegetable-heavy menu is thoughtfully seasonal, ingredient-driven (some of which comes from the restaurants backyard garden) has already gained critical acclaim and rave reviews.
