The rows of plants seem to stretch on endlessly on harvest day. Within a few hours, months worth of hard work and devotion will come to fruition as all the veggies and fruits are gathered. Hundreds of fresh tomatoes, corn, apples, and more will soon hit up the farmers’ markets, the stores, that cute little stand set up in front of the farm, local restaurants, and will eventually end up right on your plate.
This is the kind of imagery that owner Vicente Siguenza and Chef Eben Leonard of Harvest Wine Bar & Restaurant want to convey. If you’ve been following our blog, you might remember those names. Yes, Vicente is one of the owners of the classic go-to spots that we know as Cava in New Canaan, Scena Wine Bar & Restaurant in Darien, and 55 Wine Bar & Restaurant in Fairfield (we wrote an article for CBS about all of them, too). As for Eben, you might remember his work as chef at Scena. While we have love for their takes on Italian dishes (two years of OmNomy wins) and can’t get enough of their gnocchi, we’re really interested in what Harvest has to offer.
The new spot at 372 Greenwich Ave. (former home of La Brasserie and Le Figaro Bistro de Paris) in Greenwich will focus on Modern American food, put together with love and attention, and will be held together with deep roots to the earth with a farm to table experience. In fact, they refer to the experience of eating at their restaurant as “farm to fork” dining. According to Eric Gendron’s article for Greenwich Daily Voice, they will have an extensive wine menu of over 300 bottles, a beautiful wood-fired grill, will have small and large plates, and will also offer charcuterie options. Sounds like our kind of place.
They are set to open early February, so you’ll want to follow them on FB so that you can keep up to date about their opening. We’re very excited for this opening and look forward to how this restaurant can push Greenwich ahead, making it more of a culinary force to be reckoned with. Keep up to date with us on Twitter and Facebook and make sure that you’ve signed up for our instant email updates and check out our review when this exciting new Greenwich restaurant opens. We wish Vicente, Ebner, and all the crew at Harvest much success!
