red_zinger is looking for an “experience” restaurant, “something a little different.” Whatchoo got, Boston?

The farm dinner series offered by Chef Frank McClelland of L’Espalier on his own personal farm is $150 per person, including wine, tax, and tip. Dinners take place approximately monthly and ingredients are sourced from the farm, natch.

Gilson’s Herb Lyceum in Groton is another cool option, with dinners at a renovated 19th-century farmhouse among four acres of heirloom herb, flower, and vegetable gardens that guests can poke around beforehand.

Multiple hounds recommend Arrows Restaurant in Maine, which is about an hour’s drive from Boston. stomachofsteel sums up: “a charming old farmhouse with a kitchen garden … has been rated among the top restaurants in the U.S.”
