The Michelin Guide announced, this week, the list of restaurants receiving stars for 2019. And the Farmhouse team was proud and honored to remain among that elite list for the 13thconsecutive year. Says Executive Chef, Steve Litke, “to be one of only 90 restaurants to receive one or more stars, out of 657 that are recommended in the state of California makes me so incredibly proud of my entire team. Every year that we receive our star is just as exciting and nail-biting as it was the very first year”.
For anyone new to the system, one star means “high-quality cooking, worth a stop,” two stars equals “excellent cooking, worth a detour” and three stars means a restaurant has “exceptional cuisine and is worth a special journey.”
When Farmhouse owners, Catherine and Joe Bartolomei, conceived the idea of a European- style hotel and world-class restaurant nineteen years ago, it was with the hope that they would achieve one star status. “One star is a perfect spot for us. We are approachable and have flexibility in our offerings, but it recognizes the level of talent that we have in the kitchen. Our team is second to none. And the fact that our Chef has been with us for our entire nineteen years, and is like family, makes it all the sweeter. Congratulations to our entire restaurant team!”
