Friend of a Farmer is definitely a friend of my taste buds. It was a really delicious dinner in the Gramercy Park neighborhood of New York City. We needed to get out of midtown Manhatten yesterday for dinner and headed for Friend of a Farmer. I had heard of this place from my sister in-law and my wife. My sister in-law used to go here a lot and took my wife there before.
After a short walk from the subway at Union Square, we were there and sitting outside at the restaurant enjoying a cool evening breeze in New York, something that has been missing for most of our trip.
The service was prompt and friendly. It was almost like visiting family for dinner.
I had the Tery Alan Chicken. Was this delicious. It is a chicken breast stuffed with granny smith apples and cheddar cheese served over lemon bread with citrus honey raisen sauce. It is served also with mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables.
This was just one of the items that were on the menu, but I just loved this. It was quite flavorful and enjoyable. It all was washed down with a Witte beer from the Brewery Ommegang in Cooperstown, New York. It was a Belgian Wheat beer that was quite smooth.
For desert I had the key lime pie, but the berry tart also looked good.
It is more known for their breakfast and brunches, but is also a wonderful place for dinner.
It is a wonderful place to get away from it all in New York. It is a nice, quiet, and restful place in a big city. If you want to get away from it for an hour or two, head to Friend of a Farmer.
