Ben Larrabee, Darien resident and nationally-acclaimed photographer, was inspired by New Canaan's newest addition to Forest Street, the Farmer's Table, to create a dramatic 4-foot image for display in the restaurant. In line with the organic farm-to-table approach of chef and owner Robert Ubaldo and his partner Lucia, the image is titled "Trudie's Garden" and is for sale.
Farmer's Table embodies the eat local movement with its emphasis on using fresh, organic produce and meat sourced from John Boy's farm in New York. Hours are Tuesday and Wednesday, 11:45 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 11:45 a.m. to 10 p.m. Closed Sunday and Monday.
