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 featured dishes that come out of our wood smoker such as jerk chicken wings, pulled pork Carolina style and upon special order suckling pig as well as serving guests in a romantic dining room with a working fireplace.

Was Known for Great Private Dining Options...

The restaurant took reservations for parties of all sizes. For parties of 6 or more, Back Forty West offered family style tasting menus served on large platters, same day a la carte reservations for larger parties based on availability, and farm tables that can accommodate up to 22 guests and our upstairs dining room can accommodate up to 45 guests. A party larger than 45 required Back Forty West to close to the public for a private event.
