Chef and owner Greg Baxtrom worked in some of the world's most exciting kitchens, including Alinea, Blue Hill at Stone Barns, Per Se, and Lysverket in Norway, among others before opening his first restaurant Olmsted in Prospect Heights in spring 2016. His 50-seat restaurant showcases a seasonal and creative vegetable-forward menu that highlights produce from the lush 25-seat backyard garden as well as local farmers and purveyors. Greg's ingredient-driven menu features dishes like: Carrot Crepe with Littleneck Clams and Sunflower; Kale and Crab Rangoon with Sweet and Sour Sauce; Trout with Creamed Brussels Sprouts and Chestnuts; and Frozen Yogurt with Lavender Whipped Honey. The restaurant was recently awarded: one of Esquire's Best New Restaurants in America, Bon Appetit's 50 Best New Restaurants in America; Food & Wine's 2017 Restaurant of the Year; The New York Times "10 Best Restaurants in 2016"; Eater's 2016 Restaurant of the Year; and New York Magazine's "Where to Eat in 2017"; among others.
