BREWSTER, N.Y. -- Tilly Table, the new farm-to-table restaurant at Tilly Foster Farm in Bewster, is open for business.
The restaurant, a public-private partnership with Homestyle Catering, celebrated its grand opening the weekend of June 2.
The chefs at Tilly Foster Farm are Sandra Marinelli, a Mahopac resident, and Christopher Devine, a Brewster resident.
Devine attended the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park and recently held the role of executive chef and general manager at Trump Tower, During his tenure with the Trump Organization, Devine also opened and operated six restaurant divisions including The Trump Grille, Trump Café, Trump Bar, Trump Store and the Trump Ice Cream Parlor. Devine helped work with White House staff to ensure a smooth transition of all culinary services and amenities.
“I have been driving past the farm watching all the progress the county has made on the property and when they announced that they were opening Tilly’s Table I knew I wanted to be part of it,” said Devine. “Tilly’s Table will be a go-to destination in the Hudson Valley.”
Marinelli, who is heading up the restaurant’s kitchen, has been trained at Marymount College, The Institute for Integrative Nutrition and The Natural Gourmet Institute in Manhattan.
Putnam County purchased the 199-acre Tilly Foster Farm in 2002. The county took over management of the property in 2014.
“The success of Tilly Foster Farm does not belong to one person, but to all the people of Putnam County,” said Odell. “Together, we have been able to revitalize this property and make it a destination for everyone in the Hudson Valley to enjoy. We have saved this historical icon of Putnam’s farming heritage while making it an economically viable county asset.”
