After leaving a gig at nearby fine-dining restaurant La Colombe, chef Franck Dangereux set up his own much funkier, more casual eatery in a verdant farm setting. Here, beneath a humble thatched barn roof and among simply laid (and sometimes wobbly) tables, you’ll more likely encounter kids and dogs running around than pretentious diners. The food, however, is beyond top-notch—locally grown, seasonally based, passionately prepared, and artistically plated. Dishes like olive-Brie beignets served on a tian of avocado and tomato, spicy mussel fritters with chile-basil rice noodles, and herb-crusted rack of lamb in a cumin-infused jus, are transcendent. Foodbarn’s deli/bakery, under the same roof, stocks excellent take-home goodies, too, like an outstanding French pear and almond tart and three types of rye bread.
