Chefs start to see real cost savings from kitchen gardens


They say money doesn’t grow on trees, but some chefs around D.C. are finding some of it growing on tomato plants.

Chef’s gardens or kitchen gardens have been growing in popularity in recent years as the farm-to-table movement has picked up steam. In many cases, they’re only able to supplement a much larger produce demand restaurants have, but some D.C. restaurants have started to see the real fruits of their labor.

All of the Kimpton Hotel restaurants in the D.C. region have some form of garden, and Chef Ethan McKee significantly expanded the rooftop garden at Urbana at the Palomar Hotel in Dupont Circle this year.

11 Hottest Restaurants in Phoenix/Scottsdale


Although the nationally recognized foodie mecca Pizzeria Bianco first drew eyes and palates to Arizona more than a decade ago, in recent years, the dining environment – in Phoenix/Scottsdale in particular – has evolved into an electric, multifaceted scene, thanks to a treasure trove of chefs cooking well outside the Southwestern box. These dining destinations are among the buzziest in the sister cities and worth a Sonoran desert stop.


Southern Rail

Why It’s Hot: Tucked into a rehabbed historic space called The Newton and adorned with kitschy reclaimed dcor, chef Justin Beckett’s spin-off of Beckett’s Table dishes up elevated Southern food. Small plates, entrees and sweets highlight influences from ‘Bama to NOLA.
Don’t Miss: Daily specials like Wednesday-night fried chicken and Tuesday barbecue, as well as the coconut cake with coconut pudding, strike the right home-cooking chord.

300 W. Camelback Rd., Phoenix; 602-200-0085



Why It’s Hot: The menu’s simple inventiveness – with four categories: crudo, cotto (cooked), mozza and griglia – makes it easy to sample a number of dishes, from butterfish to Burrata.
Don’t Miss: By day (on the weekend), brunch jars (soft-boiled egg, sausage, truffle, arugula); and by night, the horseradish ahi tuna with green garlic.

3603 E. Indian School Rd., Ste. B, Phoenix; 602-358-8666
