Plan a farm-to-table culinary delight: Crabtree’s Kittle House

Long before there was the now familiar phrase “farm-to-table,” local farmers in Westchester were coming to the kitchen door of Crabtree’s Kittle House holding baskets of their beautifully grown products asking the chef if there might be a place for them on the menu. And the answer was always “Yes.” Since 1981, Crabtree’s Kittle House has been a culinary leader in Westchester. Through many decades and passing culinary trends, the restaurant has stayed true to the basic principle that great food starts with a great product. For Crabtree’s Kittle House, that has always meant using locally raised and grown ingredients whenever possible.
