Summer "NY Farm to Chef Dinners" Begin Weekly, Wednesday June 12

Garnish Marketing drew this badass new logo for us from Nick's idea! 
You all have been asking for Dinners so we've found a way to give them to you! 

We are very excited to announce we will begin Summer “Farm to Chef” Dinners on Wednesday evenings starting June 12 with two seatings (6:00 pm and 8:00 pm)! Reservations will be required for a minimum of eight to a maximum of ten diners per seating (groups of 2 or multiples of 2 requested). All Good will be closed during the day on Wednesdays through the summer in order to offer this new service.

These weekly Farm to Chef dinners will match the very best summer bounty our local farmers have to offer with Nick's creativity, passion for fresh ingredients and skill.

Nick alone will create and execute each week’s unique, new menu inspired by the summer’s freshest, hyper-local, upstate produce (dinner will be priced according to market ingredients and will include our Specialty breads served with Britin’s cultured/grass-fed butter, beverages and dessert). The majority of ingredients will be sourced from sustainable local farmers at the Saturday Delmar, Tuesday evening Delaware Neighborhood and Weekday Menands Farmers Markets, and from the café’s small garden on-site. Additionally, Nick plans to source fresh Rabbit and Chicken from R’Eisen Shine Farm in Copake, Organic Grass-fed/finished beef and pork from Tilldale Farm in Hoosick, and sustainable seafood from fin-your Fishmonger in Guilderland.

A vegetarian option will be offered. Local Farmers, producers and other good-food-related guests will periodically be invited. 

(update: Farmers DJ Stacey & Jon Audietis from Farmer Jon's Produce will be joining us for the 6:00pm June 12 seating!)

We hope you'll join us for some very special dinners that will take advantage of the incredible, sustainable foods produced in our region, especially during the summer months!

Reservation deadline for the June 12th dinner is
this Friday at 4pm!

Without at least 8 reservations, we'll have to cancel seatings. Please get your friends and family involved so that we can make Wednesday night Farm to Chef dinners a success!


Reservations must be made by 4pm the Friday before the chosen dinner date. (*Edit: If we're not sold out by Friday afternoon, we'll take last minute reservations at the Delmar Market on Saturdays). Each week’s new menu, with pricing, will be sent to reserved parties by email on Tuesdays. (We expect the price to be in the range of $36-$42 pp.) Part of the excitement of the dinners will be that you don't know what the menu will be when you reserve! Please attend with an open mind.

A maximum of 10 seats are available for each seating. If a minimum of 8 reservations are not booked for any given seating by Friday afternoon, that seating will be cancelled (confirmations/cancellations will be sent via email early evening Fridays Saturday afternoons).

When making a reservation, please include:

·      Your name
·      The date and time of the requested reservation (no dinners July 3).
·      The number in your party (groups of 2 or multiples of 2 requested)
·      Whether you would like an animal protein or vegetarian menu for each party
·      Any allergies you may have. (We are unable to provide gluten-free or dairy-free options at this time.)
·      Your email address and phone number

Reservations will be accepted via email at, private message on our Facebook page (please include the details requested above and put “Dinner Reservation” in the subject line), or by phone call during business hours (518-463-1349, no answering machine). Online questions will be answered promptly by email or Facebook before or after shop hours.

Dinner reservations cancelled after 4pm Fridays or no-shows are kindly requested to remit half payment to cover costs (honor system), if their seats are not replaced by other diners.

We hope you'll join us for this exciting new venture! 

Eat Well, Do Good,
Britin & Nick Foster
