I was feeling pretty lucky this past weekend. On nothing but a wild guess, I picked Shackleford to win the Preakness (not that a bet was placed) and I also managed to snag a seat at Souterrain on Sunday. Why should you be impressed? Well, this ‘underground meal’ sold out in something like 13 minutes! I’ve missed the last 2 and am embarrassed to admit I thought it might not be as magical as the first Souterrain last August. I was completely wrong. Chef Bill Taibe and his team from leFarm packed up for Sport Hill Farm in Easton, Connecticut and put on a spectacular brunch. The Chef also assured us that leFarm will never be severing brunch back at the restaurant in Westport. After reading Gabrielle Hamilton’s book, I can understand why.
Stay tuned, part 2 will feature behind-the-scenes photographs from this wonderful meal.
