Outstanding in the Field is a roving culinary adventure - imagine a restaurant without walls. Since 1999 they've set their long table at farms or gardens, on mountain tops or in sea caves, on islands or at ranches. Occasionally the table is set indoors: a beautiful refurbished barn, a cool greenhouse or a stately museum.  

Ingredients for the meal are almost all local (sometimes sourced within inches of your seat at the table!) and usually prepared by a celebrated chef of the region. After a tour of the site, you'll settle in: farmers, producers, culinary artisans, and diners sharing the long table to enjoy an unbelievable feast.

The 2009 dinner schedule will be available for reservations on Friday, March 20th, the first day of Spring. Many cities sell out within hours, so plan accordingly.  Below is alist below of confirmed sites for Outstanding in the Field dinners in 2009.
