The newest concept from Riot Hospitality Group is Farm & Craft, something totally different from their first concepts, which included El Hefe and Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row. Farm & Craft is all about clean eating with paleo dishes, foods that focus on keeping your body healthy that tap into anti-inflammatory properties or are full of probiotics and they offer foods from our local farms that are rich in antioxidants. For drinks, they have kombucha on tap, nitro coffee and much more. If you’re looking for something a little more in your drink, they even have specialty cocktails, kombucha cocktail anyone?
My friend and I enjoyed tasting a decent portion of the menu and said friend was highly impressed with the cocktails, especially The Cure, which has Square One Botanical Vodka, cucumber and kale juice, coconut water, lime and organic agave nectar.
To start we had the seasonal vegetable crudites with housemade dips and the kale caesar. We then ordered some of the top dishes I enjoyed, the build your own bowls. You can pick from five different sides to create a full meal and my favorites were the farro mac and cheese, the roasted brussels sprouts with bacon, walnuts and cranberries and the roasted broccolini. Sweet potato hash and vegan honey roasted heirloom carrots are also available to choose from.
For entrees, I went for the Tocoa Steak bowl and it was damn good! Full of organic farro, fresh corn, diced tomatoes, sweet potato, black beans, caramelized onions, cilantro, vegan slaw and avocado. I’m addicted to this style of dish nowadays, give me a big bowl of deliciousness and make it as healthy and flavorful as possible. I’m down, totally down! For me, it’s the perfect dinner portion and the best way to finish off a day of eating. However, for a lunch, I would suggest getting the steak sandwich with that grass fed steak, caramelized onions, peppers, pepper jack cheese, mushrooms, vegan horseradish sauce on flax whole wheat bread.
Aside from the options listed above, they also have flatbreads available. Like The Farm House, which can be served on regular or gluten free bread and covered in tomato sauce, mozz, asparagus, fennel, tinkerbell peppers and all natural chicken sausage. On their breakfast menu, you can find items like the protein porridge, protein pancakes or breakfast sammy. So whether you’re looking to grab a drink on the patio with a friend, have breakfast on the weekend, grab a healthy lunch during work or enjoy their full-service restaurant at night, Farm & Craft has you covered.
