ABOUT THE CHEFS
Mateo Blance started working in kitchens when he was 16 years old, peeling onions and rolling out pizza dough in his homeland Australia. Once the tears from all the onions dried he realized it was love. He's worked in kitchens around the world: NZ, AU, Europe, and the United States which has given him a vast knowledge of many different cuisines.
Justin Harter too began his career in food & beverage around the age of 16 but on the opposite side of the fryer. Justin quickly found himself in every position on the restaurant floor from bus boy to Maitre-d. It was his formidable experience as restaurant manager and his love of cocktailing that took him into ice pops.
Mateo and Justin met through a mutual friend in 2013 while pursuing their mutual interest of fresh juicy fun in the sun. Thursday's menu is inspired by their mutual love of sun cuisine and finishing a meal with the most delicious desserts.
Gates open at 6pm and dinner will be served at 6:45.
If you plan to arrive by public transportation, take the A-train heading towards Far Rockaway and get off at the Beach 44th Street Station. You will see yellow sandwich board signs for Edgemere Farm once you get to street level.
A few farm tidbits... With our canopied deck, dinners are on rain or shine. We do family style so you may be sharing a table with new friends. Cozy up! We have a Facebook (like us!) and an Instagram (follow us!). Check us out @edgemerefarm.
