THE RESTAURANT

Earth. Air. Fire. Water. The four original elements that we needed to survive. Built in 1875 and nestled between Old Long Ridge Road and New Long Ridge Road, The Farmhouse at the Crossroads is a celebration of almost 150 years of old and new cuisines, traditions, and culture. Set in 4 separate dining rooms, you may find yourself surrounded by the beauty and sounds of nature in the earth room, or you can relax in the dark romance of the flickering flames dancing on the rock walls of the fire room. The Air room is alive with movement and light for a simple yet elegant experience, while the water room will whisk you away with its 26-foot waterfall and inspired decor. Our seasonal, upscale food consists of the very best ingredients and are sourced locally wherever possible. Relax and unwind as chef Matthew Cook takes you on a refined and whimsical journey of worldly delicacies. Enjoy our 35-foot bar by our fireplace where our artisanal craft cocktails are inspired by the regional flavors and seasons and our extensive wine and liquor list can satisfy the most complex of palettes.

Born and raised in southern VT, Matthew Cook has always had an intimate relationship with food and nature. during the summers he helped his dad tend a one acre garden in their backyard, they would walk a mile down the road to get the freshest cow and goat milks, cheeses and butters. And during the winter he would wake up early to walk through 30 acres of tapped trees in the snow to collect sap and boil it down into maple syrup. Matthew Cook began his culinary career at 15 years old and never looked back. he moved to NYC when he was 19 to work with some of the best known restaurants including Salumeria Rosi, Crosby Street Hotel, Sonnier & Castle, The Fat Radish and Soho Grand. He continued his journey from there to Miami where he oversaw La cote at Le Fontaine Bleu and consulted for Lulu's in The Grove.  Passion for colors, clean flavors and whimsical flares is what continues to inspire him today as he expands his journey into Stamford CT to bring upscale new american food to the Farmhouse at the Crossroads.
