I was recently invited to Barnie’s Coffeekitchen on Park Avenue to try their weekly chef’s dinner menu and talk to their management about some of the upcoming projects at Barnie’s.

Their dedication to community and food is refreshing and evident in their sourcing of local ingredients from local farms.

All in all, the menu is very impressive and is definitely a must try. The kitchen wins extra kudos points for working in the limited space that they have and without real stoves – creativity points all around.
