Eat This Week, July 5 to 11, 2017: Dinner With the Flowers



Supper goes back to the field in Wolcott. As the sun sets on July's first Friday evening, take a seat amid the flowers and vegetables in Sandiwood Farm's greenhouse dining room. Sip a craft cocktail — the first one from Blackbird Bar Catering is on the house — and sup on fresh fare from Dave Dickson, David Huck and Anthony Krill of Woodbelly Pizza. Still a work in progress, the menu might include blistery flatbreads topped with early cherry tomatoes; bright summer salads punctuated with sun-kissed flowers and radishes; and pastas tossed with fresh herbs. Whatever it is, it'll be fresh; much of the produce for the meal grew steps from the table.

Farm-to-Fork Sunset Dinner: Friday, July 7, 6:30 p.m., at Sandiwood Farm in Wolcott. $85; reservations required. Info, 888-2881.
