In this day and age of information at our fingertips, one thing that has become hugely popular, and rightfully so, is where our food comes from. Decades ago, it was easy to know where it came from, usually the local farmer. Now that the food industry has rapidly expanded, knowing where each bite came from can be very useful. Along with the rise of wanting to know where our food has come from is also the rise of the local farm to table restaurants. They pop up all over towns and cities and offer guests the best proteins and freshest fruits and vegetables from nearby gardens. Let us at Ledges Hotel show you the best farm to table restaurants in our area so no matter where you are in our side of the Pocono Mountains, you know you will be eating well.
The first of the best farm to table restaurants we would like to highlight is TREE Restaurant and Bar at the Lodge at Woodloch. They are at the forefront of farm to table restaurants around here. They strive to use naturally-raised meats in their dishes as well as organically grown vegetables. Many of those vegetables can be found in their on-site garden. They are open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and reservations are required for dinner. Chef Josh Tomson also has cooking demonstrations for guests and can be requested for special events. Be sure to have a look at their delicious menu as well as their wine and cocktail menus.
Next up on our list of best farm to table restaurants is the River Room Gastropub at The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort. They are also open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and have their menus available online for you to peruse. They also use local and fresh ingredients and their menus rotate out with the seasons so you are able to have amazing dishes that are perfect with the time of year. A lot of their vegetables are their own and grown on their own Shawnee Island Farm.
Last on our tour of the best farm to table restaurants in the Pocono Mountains is to our sister inn, the Settlers Inn. They offer amazing dishes cooked by their incredible chefs and just like the rest of these farm to table restaurants, they are open for multiple meals. For Settlers Inn, they are open for breakfast, brunch, and dinner. Not only does Chef Ben Sutter rotate his menus with the seasons but also with what is fresh and best when it comes to ingredients. For guests, this means that you are guaranteed to have a fantastic meal. Be sure to browse their sample menus so you can have a good idea of what to expect when you decide to go to Settlers Inn for a meal.
