Best Restaurants: Chef Alex Seidel opened Fruition Restaurant in 2007. With its menu of upscale comfort food and a well-curated wine list, it was an instant success. It remains very popular, meaning reservations are a must. One thing that sets Fruition (and Seidel's other enterprises) apart is the chef's 10-acre farm where much of the restaurant's produce, cheese and meat products are grown, made and raised. While the term 'farm-to-table' fits, it's not a label Seidel embraces. What matters to him are the relationships involved, and Fruition Farms has been what he calls an education in understanding how to grow crops, make cheese and raise animals and how to harvest these foods. "Farm-to-table," Seidel says, "is all of those processes and understanding what goes into the relationship between producer and end user. This hands-on experience has helped us create a viable, long-lasting relationship between farm and restaurant."
