Farm foodie getaway in NJ?

jmarx | May 12, 2010 09:54 PM

Hi everyone-

My boyfriend is turning 30 in June. We are both foodies. He LOVES to eat, will eat ANYTHING, and is a great cook (excellent; has taken a few classes, nothing too formal).

We try new restaurants all the time, but I would LOVE to take him somewhere really, really special. He gets sick of pomp and circumstance at fancy restaurants- he's just into the food. Are there any restaurants that are literally situated on a farm? I have seen shows on TV- is there anything like that in reality? My dream visions are to tour around a farm, maybe meet the owners/chef, sit at a chef's table, lodge nearby...

I just read about a place called Natirar (Raritan spelled backwards) but I can't find out anything about it. It seems you have to be a member. It's a farm in Raritan with a restaurant and I think, an inn or something... Also, Elements in Princeton?

We live in the Morristown/Maplewood areas but would travel and make a weekend or night trip out of it. I'd love suggestions- let me know if you think of anything!!
