Whim Restaurant at Smolak Farms Returns for Summer 2012

Saturday Jul 7, 2012

BOSTON, MA - Boston's favorite seasonal restaurant is returning for the summer. Back by popular demand, Smolak Farms presents "Whim" 2012.

Located in North Andover, Massachusetts, Smolak Farms has partnered with Northeast Flavor, Cambridge Culinary School, Boston Chefs, Yelp and to present the best outdoor dining experience New England has to offer.

Whim will take place every Wednesday evening starting July 11th, 2012 and continuing until August 29th, 2012 at 7:30PM and will feature top chefs from all over New England.

"Whim is such an innovative concept that is really difficult to ignore. It is something that people talk about and get excited for because it is a one-of-a-kind experience that you're not going to find anywhere else. It is so easy to get wrapped up in the craziness of the city of Boston and I think people appreciate an evening away from it all. We're taking the best food in the city and bringing it to a more rustic and relaxed setting. Top that off with the fact that each dinner supports a great cause and you really can't beat it," said Michael Smolak, owner of Smolak Farms.

Guests will experience a meal under the stars prepared by some of New England’s most respected and praised chefs. Included in the $65.00 ticket price is a three-course dinner followed by a bonfire to meet and greet your fellow diners.

Chefs will be accompanied by culinary students from The Cambridge School of Culinary Arts in order to help them smoothly and successfully execute dinner to an audience of over 100 guests each week. As implied by the event name, Whim, the menu is prepared the day-of at the discretion of the chef.

"I had such an amazing experience last year at Whim, and I am both honored and excited to be participating again this summer. Knowing that I am able to do what I am passionate about while simultaneously helping a cause that is close to me is really what it is all about."

"It is such a unique night for both the chefs and diners, it’s not just a dinner, but an experience," said returning chef Andy Husbands of Tremont 647 who will be cooking at Whim on July 18th, 2012.

Smolak Farms in North Andover, MA offers something fun for everyone-blending a 300 year-old New England Farm complete with orchards, berry fields, and family activities.

The Family Farm experience goes beyond the average petting zoo.

Smolak Farms is located at 315 South Bradford Street, North Andover, MA.
