Diners at Farmer & The Fish

I brought the kids to the Wolf Conservation Center in South Salem today, while Catie met a friend in New Jersey.  Afterwards, the boys and I took a short drive up 684 for lunch at Farmer & the Fish.  Really charming.  Located in a house that dates back to the late 18th century.  Lots of stone and wood, with enormous fireplaces to warm things up on a cold winter afternoon.  Owen had eggs benedict, Jeremy had a salmon burger, I had the lobster roll, and we all shared lobster hash on the side.  All delicious, but the salmon burger was especially good – a big chunk of fish turned out medium rare with nice char at the edge, not the usual ground-up patty.  Much of the food is grown on the property or sourced locally.  We’d certainly go back.  Thanks to Herb Oringel for the suggestion.
