Twisted fern

New American Cuisine

$$$

Twisted Fern’s simple décor matches their wholesome food. As you walk in, the clean white walls and green wood bar accent feel comforting. Here is a place dedicated to being 100% natural. Simple lights illuminate a nice dining room with a view of the kitchen. Windows all around the restaurant allow for the daylight to flow in and bring the evergreens outside closer without permitting the chill to reach you. Twisted Fern is dedicated to serving natural whole food with minimal processing. That doesn’t mean their menu is any less impressive with items like mussels and baked goat cheese. You decide to start with the “Garlic and Sesame Chickpeas” and see where your stomach takes you. 

Twisted Fern may be off Main Street, but it is definitely a place to stop. Head chef and owner Adam Ross got his start at 8 years old making dog treats. Next, he became head chef at Bistro 412 and spent a decade in their kitchen before opening Twisted Fern to live out his culinary dreams. This spot is great for those with dietary restrictions as they cater to gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian and vegan needs. They are open Wednesday through Sunday for lunch and nightly for dinner. Take a date here for an adventurous night with something like octopus or bring the whole family and teach the kids about the difference between natural French fries and processed Cheetos. There is a kid’s menu with smaller simpler portions, so Mom and Dad don’t have to get spaghetti just because the kids want mac and cheese. Everyone will be able to find something to eat and push their boundaries at the same time. Reservations can be made through Open Table or by calling the restaurant directly.
