Restaurant Spotlight: Farm to Table Bistro, Fishkill


Behind the doors of Farm To Table Bistro, owner Chris O’Brien is all about catering to the newly sophisticated, “we want our food super-fresh and super-local” crowd that dominates today’s dining scene. A quick look at the menu makes that perfectly clear: There is cheese from Poughkeepsie’s Sprout Creek Farm, “healthy” bread from the Cohen Sisters of Ellenville, a partnership with the New York Beef Company in LaGrange (only grass-fed meat, of course), and organic chicken from Murray Farms in Sullivan County. O’Brien likes to add his own touch, even to classic dishes. His calamari is breaded in panko and cooked to perfection; plus, it’s served with a delectable chipotle aïoli sauce. To top it all off, patrons can come listen to live music every Friday night.
