So Greensgrow Farm in Fishtown North is emulating the 'Outstanding In A Field' traveling farm dinner series.
Greensgrow Farm announces its first FARM DINNER!

Chef Corbin Evans has returned to Philadelphia and agreed to man the grill (oven/prep table/garde manger [sic]) and prepare a five course feast in homage to our region's best and freshest food.

Thursday July 30 at 6:30 PM at Greensgrow, the farm table will be set amidst the greenery and under the stars (and maybe the Local police helicopter-it is Kensington after all) for Chef Evan's fantastic treatment. In the mode of Jim Denevan's Outstanding in The Field dinners (, our guests will sample a seasonal heirloom salad, house smoked fish appetizer, fresh fruit and local cheese, main course and fresh roasted coffee and dessert.

All diners will be asked to change their seats halfway through the meal to meet the other guests. BYOB to allow you to pair your favorite libations with the Chef's creations.

This $45 dinner will benefit Greensgrow's Kensington Community Kitchen, creating new food opportunities in our neighborhoods. RSVP to

First come, first serve. This is a very limited seating. The final menu will be available for preview next week.
Cool idea. Keep 'em coming.
