Arethusa Al Tavolo: The New Gem of Litchfield County

Arethusa Al Tavolo is the new gem of Litchfield County. Only a one hour's drive from Westport, past lush pastures and glistening lakes, Arethusa Al Tavolo takes you on a culinary journey. The restaurant is located right next door to the Arethusa Dairy Shop, founded by Manolo Blanik owners George Malkemus and Anthony Yurgaitis, whose taste and style manifests itself in all of their ventures: The Arethusa Bar, The Dairy Farm, and Arethusa Al Tavolo, which opened in June 2013. The dairy produces milk, house made ice cream, and Arethusa cheese to take home. The restaurant highlights fresh local ingredients, and Chef Daniel Magill, who has worked with the likes of Daniel Boulud, works his magic in a dining space that is bright and airy, but with no airs. The food is the centerpiece.

Community Table in Washington CT

In the Litchfield County town of Washington, the two-year old Community Table and its team led by Executive Chef Joel Viehland, stands at the center of a tight network of farmers, foragers and discerning diners. Born from agrarian collaboration rather than co-opting it, Community Table was built around the notion that a restaurant serving its community must not only serves its diners, but act with respectful stewardship of the land. This translates to sourcing seasonally, locally and sustainably, as well as pickling, drying, fermenting and composting.

Arethusa To Open Wine Bar in Bantam

As reported by the Litchfield County Times, the owners of Arethusa Dairy in Litchfield County received town approval to open a wine bar in a location adjacent to their retail operation at 822 Bantam Road in Bantam, CT.

The dairy was founded by Manolo Blanik owners George Malkemus and Anthony Yurgaitis who own and operate the dairy which produces milk and other dairy products such as yogurt and ice cream. According to the County Times:

"Approval was given to a proposal for a wine bar in a building adjacent to Arethusa’s creamery in the former Bantam Firehouse, where its farm-fresh milk, ice cream, cheeses, yogurts and more are sold. The wine bar is envisioned as a bistro-style operation that will serve the creamery’s signature cheeses and other light fare."

A Taste of Litchfield Hills 2011

Advance tickets are now on sale for the 26th annual Taste of Litchfield Hills 2011 at Ski Sundown in New Hartford, CT during Labor Day weekend. The event will be held Saturday to Sunday from 12 noon to 8 p.m. and Monday from 12 noon to 5 p.m. Tickets are $8 purchased in advance or $10 at the door and kids under 12 are free, which does not include the cost of food or drink.

The Festival touts itself as Connecticut's oldest food and wine festival live entertainment and shopping in addition to food and wine from local restaurants and purveyors. Last year the festival, held at Lime Rock Park during the Rolex Vintage Festival, featured many Litchfield and Harftord County restaurants and local vineyards such as Hopkins Vineyard, Miranda Vineyard and White Silo Winery. Vendors are still signing on, so check with the Festival's site for the most up to date informaiton.

Although I'm sad to see it moved from Lime Rock Park, Ski Sundown looks to be a dedicated location and is a great opportunity for one-stop-shopping for those interesting in trekking north to experience food and wine from beyond Fairfield County.
