Another Wednesday equals another exciting addition to our food-donor roster! Elm Restaurant in New Canaan is our newest food-rescue partner and we can’t wait to see what delicious foods Community Plates food-runners will get to transfer to hungry people starting very soon.
Chef Brian Lewis and the Elm team serve modern American cuisine that is “rooted in tradition, inspired by the seasons”. Elm’s 80 seat restaurant features the chef’s ever-changing menus using products from local farmers, foragers and artisans as well as specialty, imported ingredients. Elm is open nightly for dinner and has just begun serving lunch daily as of today! (Wednesday, May 15th) Chef Lewis, best known for his collaboration with actor Richard Gere in creating The Barn and The Farmhouse at Bedford Post has a great interest in making sure no food goes to waste and Elm’s community focus makes joining the “Food-For-All” food-rescue revolution a natural fit.
Elm is our first New Canaan (CT) restaurant but hopefully not our last! Call and make a reservation for a night (or afternoon) at Elm soon and while you’re there say thank you for their commitment to taking care of those in need in their community.
