At its core, Back Forty is a burger joint—but an organic and responsibly sourced one, with ample, in-season vegetarian dishes. Just as Savoy broke new ground when it offered a relaxed approach to the concept of a chef-driven restaurant with greenmarket ideals, Back Forty East continues in that tradition.

Located in the former home of Savoy—where Peter Hoffman's pioneering farm-to-table ethics made him "a locavore before the word existed," per the New York Times—Back Forty West shares many a dish with its neighbor to the East, with bonus items including smoked pork shoulder, suckling pig, and a working fireplace.
