TheCOMPOUNDbrooklyn + bk farmyards event, scheduled for Aug 22nd, will benefit and celebrate local food in Brooklyn. So, of course, we'll be offering yummy, locally-grown food! We'll also be raffling off gift certificates from local restaurants, such as The Farm on Adderley.
The Farm on Adderley, located in Ditmas Park, Brooklyn, specializes in slow-cooked food. Opened by first-time restaurateurs Gary Jonas and Allison McDowell, they felt their success was a long shot. In fact, they named the restaurant after a saying Mr. Jonas’s family picked up in Cape Town, South Africa, where Mr. Jonas was born and where Adderley Street is a major thoroughfare. “If that ever happens, I’ll buy you a farm on Adderley,” the family would often say about an unlikely outcome.
But three years later, The Farm on Adderley is a neighborhood favorite and continues to receive raving reviews. It even won the Slow Food NYC's Snail of Approval which is awarded to restaurants, bars, food and beverage artisans, and retailers in recognition of their contributions to the quality, authenticity and sustainability of the food supply of the City of New York.
EAT YOUR VEGGIES…for charity!
All summer long, The Farm on Adderley will select a seasonal vegetable every week and create a special dish. Come in and order this dish and we will donate 20% to FARM SANCTUARY: A non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring humane treatment of animals. Farm Sanctuary works to end cruel factory farming practices through investigations, public education, legislation, and litigation.
This Week’s Vegetable: Spring Garlic
