Farm-Fresh As Can Be

The menu at Emmer & Rye is a wonderfully nimble one, given it shifts not just seasonally but daily based on what the restaurant's partnering farmers, ranchers, and fishermen have fresh. Ordering a few of the nightly specials, which are introduced around the eatery on a cart (sort of dim sum-style), gives you the chance to tap right into the rhythms of the local and regional foodshed.

The restaurant's name, meanwhile, reflects its focus on heritage grains, milled on-site for pastas, breads, and other menu items. This is a place that puts a great deal of thought and work into structuring a conscientious farm-to-table menu, and that effort pays off nightly.
