Farmstead consists of 3 different restaurants in Providence Rhode Island. Farmstead, La Laiterie and Farmstead Downcity. They all use local/organic highest quality artisan cheeses, meats, and breads. Farmstead is creating a buzz in the Providence food scene and chef/owner Matt Jennings is near celebrity status. At first glance I could have been in Manhattan. Stinky cheese and meats hanging from the ceiling. These guys are legitimate cheesemongers. I grabbed a grilled cheese with caramelized onions to go. On my weekend trip to Rhode Island I must have stopped at five restaurants from TV shows. Not only was this the best thing I ate all weekend but this was the best grilled cheese I have ever had. Previously the ultimate grilled cheese came from Rubiners Cheesemongers in Great Barrington MA. Farmstead was even better! The gooey string melted artisan cheese coming of of the crusty bread with the caramelized onions, Just Divine. They are also known for their blue cheese cookies. Unfortunately they didn't have any when I was there but maybe they'll have them when you go there. Great place to pick up some cheese and sandwiches. La Laiterie is a fancier sit down restaurant specializing in seasonal local produce and ingredients.
