The local food movement is not new to the Catskill region. It is a part of our livelihood, our everyday routine, and to put it simply-it’s our lifestyle. This year in the new Guide to Pure Catskills Products we are proud to feature nine restaurants who are just as passionate about preparing high quality meals as they are about purchasing locally sourced food. These pages will show you a glimpse inside the doors of the Peekamoose Restaurant and Tap Room, Ruby’s Hotel, Pickled Owl, Table on Ten, The Bull and Garland, Zephyr Restaurant, The North Branch Inn, Rolling River Café and Two Old Tarts and One Smart Cookie. Every establishment is committed to the same mission, to source the best and most nutritious products from the very region they reside in.
This year, we wanted to show you the unique partnership between the farmers, growers and producers in the Catskills, and the chefs who use their products. We are extremely proud that each page reflects the abundance of products, people, restaurants and businesses that Pure Catskills is working to support, from the farm to the table. My hope is that you will take the time to meet the chefs who have dedicated their menus to sourcing locally because they are helping to preserve the working landscapes of the Catskills, and are keeping their money within our communities. In doing so, they are helping to improve the economic viability of the region while providing the public with some of the most delicious, nutritious and outstanding meals in the world. And it’s not just the nine restaurants featured who are making a difference, it is all of those listed under our Restaurant and Lodging section on page 47.
