In Memoriam :: Gerry Hayden

Tuesday, September 8, 2015

So upsetting to read the obituary in the New York Times for revered chef & restaurateur Gerry Hayden. Diagnosed with ALS in 2010, this shining star in the culinary field passed on too soon at the age of 50. Hayden, along side his wife Claudia Fleming and partners Michael & Mary Mraz opened in 2006 The North Fork Table & Inn in Southold, a quaint town located towards the end of Long Island. Not only did this charming eatery elevate the dining scene of the area, it put sourcing ingredients from the long established local farming community a priority for their signature in-season dishes.

*2 weeks ago, while visiting my family's place out on the North Fork, we enjoyed a lovely dinner at the North Fork Table & Inn -- perfect service & serene decor. We returned the following day to the restaurant's Food Truck for lunch. My photos above & below + watch the video to learn more about Gerry Hayden.
