Kitchen creative Farm-to-Table

Atmosphere Casual, Fun, Intimate, Trendy

From the day it opened, The Fat Radish, situated in a vacant sausage factory, has become New York’s hot spot, where artists, actors, singers, fashion icons, celebrities and local foodies, come to dine (Michael Stipe, Jake Gyllenhall, Jeff Koons, Liv Tyler are some of its regular customers). They all quickly became infatuated with the restaurant Farm-to-Table kitchen, which sources the best possible ingredients from local farms and supports sustainable farming, building a menu based on seasonal vegetables and fruit, from which they make simple, healthy and creative dishes .

In less than five years, Phil Winser and Ben Towill,  the two Brits chefs- entrepreneurs and friends, conquered the capital of gourmet dining and become one of the ten best restaurants in the Lower-East Side, which received three out of Four stars in The New York Times. The  restaurateurs, who started out by selling sandwiches to offices, now operate Silkstone Hospitality Group- a catering and event planner company, that also consists of three restaurants – The Fat Radish, Leadbelly- an oyster bar with live music and East Pole- which is considered to be the mature version of The Fat Radish. Among its clientele one can find Bentley’s, Tori Burch and Coachella Valley Music and Arts festival.

Three years ago the two opened a Fat Radish pop-up restaurant in Paris, and due to its success, another restaurant was opened in a fancy castle in Rio an Brazil, during The World Cup. Chef Joe Capozzi joined the team to assist with the set up of the fat radish outpost in the hamptons, ruschmeyers, and has been with Silkstone Group ever since.

"It's this idea that you never stop exploring. The key thing is just giving it a go and not being afraid of failure. It's an enjoyment for life — just getting people around a table."
