Nothing is better than eating a dish that is made with fresh, organic ingredients—especially when they comes straight from the restaurant’s backyard. The farm-to-table approach in the food and beverage industry has been gaining more popularity over the years as people have sought out cleaner food to put in their bodies.

In the North Valley, the scenic and atmospheric establishment Farm & Table has made farm-to-table their main objective. Owner and North Valley native Cherie Montoya developed the whole concept and menu out of clean, organic, locally sourced food after developing a deep appreciation for homegrown produce in the valley. Teaming up with Executive Chef Steve Riley, the pair make a delightful, clean menu.

Vegan Moussaka

Gazing upon this succulent menu, you realize Farm & Table’s options embrace Albuquerque’s best, home-grown ingredients. I’m your classic carnivore. I love steak and chicken, but there’s something about F&T’s Vegan Moussaka ($24). A dish served with eggplant, tofu and fresh vegetables and spices, it’ll make every meat eater consider a diet change.

Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had their New York striploin ($41), a juicy, thick piece of meat topped with melting thyme butter and paired with fresh veggies. The difference between Farm & Table’s meat and other steakhouses is you know the source of the product. It’s not packaged and delivered from a packaging plant. Plus, it doesn’t make you feel bloated or sick; it’s clean fresh meat.

Farm & Table has been able to create an environment that doesn’t just include food, but spaces for meditation, gatherings and yoga. It’s definitely an environment you want to immerse yourself in. To escape from the hustle and bustle of life, give your mind and body a break and head to the North Valley for a nice evening of food and drink.
