Shhh! Farmstead Restaurant Opens Tomorrow!

Shhh! Don't tell anyone, but Farmstead restaurant opens tomorrow (Friday, February 12th).

Tomorrow is a really big day for our family and for chef Sheamus Feeley and his team.  We will open our farm-to-table restaurant for lunch and dinner at our St. Helena location at 738 Main Street.

We held an open house on Tuesday evening for the many people who have helped us with this project. Frank Borges (the general contractor) and all of the subcontractors and their crews were part of the scene.  It was great to see them show off their work to family and friends.  Great folks with true pride in their work.

Yesterday we did a "practice service" at lunch and dinner with family and friends serving as patrons.  We served about 120 meals and, by the end of the evening, the staff had the room and kitchen working really well.  The excellent practice gave everyone confidence that we could pull it off "for real" on Friday.

Today we closed for final cleaning and a "zero base" inventory.

So, here we go.  No more hoopla or parties.  Instead, every day wil be a "grand opening" at Farmstead.

We open the phone lines for reservations on Friday morning at 11:30 AM (707-963-9181).  And, hopefully, we'll open the doors shortly thereafter.

Please come join us.  Most of the seats are for the local community. So, walk-ins are welcome.  Reservations are limited.

More news tomorrow.
