Buttermilk Falls Inn + Spa Now Home to Henry’s at the Farm with Chad Greer as Top Toque
MILTON, NY, June 25, 2012 – Superb dining opportunities are among the Hudson Valley’s many attractions and one of the newer options is further raising the bar with the appointment of a new executive chef, the introduction of new menus and a name change to better reflect its concept. Henry’s Farm to Table, the destination restaurant that opened last spring at the enchanting full service resort Buttermilk Falls Inn + Spa situated on a bucolic 75-acre estate along the banks of the Hudson River, is now Henry’s at the Farm – a nod to the property’s 40-acre organic farm, which provides the restaurant with produce, fruit, herbs, honey and eggs. Ingredients now being utilized to their best advantage by new Executive Chef Chad Greer, the former chef / owner of nearby New Paltz’s very popular and highly acclaimed Beso.
The veteran of high profile restaurants on both coasts, such as San Francisco’s Acqua and Jean-Georges in New York City, Greer’s new menus for Henry’s at the Farm are designed to have palate appeal for area residents, as well as those drawn to the 17 captivating guest accommodations – rooms, suites and stand alone houses – at Buttermilk Falls Inn + Spa’s. And they embody Greer’s long held commitment to sourcing from local farms, purveyors and artisan food producers.
Early crowd pleasers include: Hepworth Farms Spinach Salad made with Millstone Farm hardboiled egg, crispy bacon, feta and a sherry-shallot vinaigrette; Housemade Potato Gnocchi with Braised Local Rabbit; Eggplant and Millstone FarmSpring Onion Pizza; and Honey (from Millstone Farm ) and Chipotle Hereford Beef Short Ribs accompanied by housemade cornbread and local bitter greens.
“Chad’s experience with top chefs like Michael Mina and Jean Georges Vongerichten and his successful track record in our local market make him a perfect fit for Henry’s,” enthuses Robert Pollock, the owner of Buttermilk Fall Inn + Spa, whose four year old son is the Henry in the restaurant’s name. “With Chad in charge of the kitchen, we’re confident Henry’s can realize its potential to become a Hudson Valley dining ‘must.’”
With the new name, chef and menus come longer hours of operation for Henry’s, which is now open four days a week for lunch, Wednesday through Saturday, as well as for dinner. On Sundays Henry’s at the Farm is open for brunch and dinner.
