Chef Alex Seidel opened Fruition Restaurant in 2007 with a seasonally driven menu of upscale comfort food and a well-curated wine list. It was an instant success. Dishes may include such options as cheeses from Fruition Farm, gnocchi with blue crab or sunchoke salad. While the term "farm-to-table" is overused, Seidel made it a reality here when he started his 10-acre farm south of Denver. Trendy descriptors are not what Seidel is about. Rather, he's about relationships. 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." For more than a decade, Fruition has done just that.
