Over his youth and adult life, David developed an affinity for fine food preparation, especially of the seasonally fresh, organic kind. His father, Chef John Larkworthy, was among the early organic pioneers in the ‘70s. Long before popular interest in “organics” became fashionable, David worked side-by-side with his dad at his restaurant in Connecticut. They developed the principles and techniques that Dave uses today. Later David would study, and cook, in Italy. David opened the Gourmet Grill, his first restaurant, at the age of 23 and began introducing the concept of featuring local ingredients prepared in a multitude of specials every day. He then went to work with Chef Paul Albrecht and later studied Pastry with Chef Francois Collet.Chef David Larkworthy opened 5 Seasons Brewing Company in 2001 with the goal of providing cutting-edge, seasonally-appropriate food and drink at fair prices. "We would rather have people here twice a week, than once a month," remarked Dave. This is obvious to the casual observer who recognizes friendly locals each and every visit. When you consider the restaurant can seat over three hundred people, it's amazing how cozy and comfortable you feel.
Stopped in here because Sweet Water Brewery is closed on Saturday evenings, it was a pleasant alternative with a selection of microbrews and some delicious hot wings. Tried the golden ale, a shandy and an ipa with a ridiculously long name. We liked the ipa, but were unimpressed by the other two. Staff friendly enough although a little indifferent, we were sitting at the bar which wasn't too busy.
I love IPAs- this was one of my favorites. I seem to like IPAs with numbers in the name of the brewery...
Food was okay (although that's not really why I got to a brewery)
