Farm-to-Table Dinner at Comfortfood & Kitchenette
Sunday, March 26, 2017 ∼ 6 pm
Join us on March 26 for an exquisitely prepared, seasonal and locally sourced dinner.
Comfortfood & Kitchenette is a cozy, farm-to-table BYOB restaurant, tucked away on a back street, in an innocuous block of stores in Morrisville, PA. It’s one of Morrisville’s best kept secrets. The locals know about it but I think everyone else needs to know about it too.
Comfortfood specializes in fresh, creative and seasonal cuisine with ingredients sourced from local farms. The menu includes dishes that meat-lovers, vegetarians and vegans can all enjoy.
