Richard Farnabe rooftop garden 

Chef Farnabe is going back to the grass roots with vegetables grown so locally that there may no longer be any need to leave the premises of the Soho Grand Hotel. Overlooking the awe-inspiring skyline of New York, one could miss the expansive garden that sits atop the Soho gem, however the aromas of the potent herbs and fresh vegetables will soon awaken your senses. Bringing farm-fresh ever closer, Chef Farnabe has disclosed his rooftop secret of a carefully irrigated garden that will be the foundation for ingredients that heighten the experience at both hotels. Encompassing a large variety of tomatoes with about 16 of them heirlooms, Farnabe is also growing a range of herbs for three variations of basil, sage, chive and cilantro to parsley. Summer salads will be greened to perfection with arugula, romaine, and lettuce, while a mix of vegetables including zucchini, cucumbers, red beets, jalapenos, eggplant, butternut squash, pumpkin, and broccolis will be nurtured until they reach their prime day for picking. Locally grown is being redefined with this new addition, our Chef is plucking simple pleasure to bring a whole new level of fresh from rooftop to tabletop.
