Arrows is the flagship restaurant of award winning chefs, Mark Gaier and Clark Frasier and has been named 14th in "America's Top 50 Restaurants 2006" by Gourmet Magazine, as well as being chosen as "One of America's 10 Most Romantic Restaurants" by Bon Appetit.
Nominated by the James Beard Foundation as "Best Chef's in the Northeast", Mark and Clark have also created restaurants, MC Perkins Cove and Summer Winter, where they continue their tradition of innovation and excellence. Arrows is a true country restaurant in the tradition of the French Michelin 3 Star destinations.
At Arrows the old world traditions are celebrated: proscuittos and charcuterie are created on premise, fish of all types are prepared in the onsite smoke house, breads and pastries are created by a master pastry chef. Cheeses are taken from curd to finished product in the kitchen and mushrooms, cranberries and fiddleheads are foraged from the surrounding woodlands.
According to the Daily Green.com, "Chefs Mark Gaier and Clark Frasier are stalwart forerunners of the sustainable movement". In 1992, long before "green" was a hot topic, the Arrows garden was founded. Today it provides up to 90% of Arrows produce needs. Its three full time gardeners, under the direction of Master Gardener Rae Avery, tend this highly cultivated organic farm.
