One month wait for this restaurant

Vivian and Ben Howard are James Beard award chefs from NY City. They left the big city and started a restaurant in the little farming town of Kinston, NC.

PBS picked up their story and they have an on-going weekly TV documentary called “A Chef’s Life”. The restaurant is a great success and it’s a one-month wait to get a reservation, we went this weekend and met the owners Vivian and Ben, it was exceptional. Their restaurant is called “Chef & The Farmer” and their web page and menu are here: chefandthefarmer.com .

Ben, Lee and Vivian…
