Best New Restaurant North (2009)
Owner Richard Gere’s Hollywood star power is very nice, but it doesn’t show up on your fork. The real luminary behind The Farmhouse at Bedford Post is Chef Brian Lewis, whose Italy-inflected, locavorian kitchen yields endless high-toned treats. Especially stellar is his breakout trio of handmade ravioli, in which each pocket in turn reveals salty spinach, mild ricotta, and a golden, oozing whole yolk. Taken as a single bite, it’s divine; if we had Oscars to give, Lewis would be all tuxed-up and ready to go.
