A Four Course Tasting Menu by Chef Will Gilson accompanied with thoughtful and creative wines. 21+ event.
Puritan & Company’s Chef/Owner Will Gilson grew up on a New England farm and has taken his background and years of culinary expertise to incorporate it into the award-winning food he serves to his guests. Chef Gilson honed his culinary skills at Oleana in Inman Square, Silks at the Stonehedge Inn outside of Lowell, and at the restaurant of London’s most exclusive hotel, The Lanesborough. Gilson made his name in the Boston area in 2007, when he opened the Garden at the Cellar, a mid-priced restaurant that quickly built up a large following in Cambridge. He left in 2011, as a leader on the forefront of the pop-up restaurant movement in Boston, to introduce a series of successful restaurant ventures, including Eat @ Adrian’s located on the Cape during the summer of 2011. However, it was at the Herb Lyceum at his family farm in Groton, Mass. where farm to table cooking truly became second nature for the burgeoning chef. Gilson was only 17 years old when he began cooking there, and the experience set the foundation for his appreciation for farm fresh produce and the merit of seasonal cooking. Gilson’s time at the Herb Lyceum has molded the direction of Puritan & Company, where guests will find touches of his familial hospitality and their passion for herbs sprinkled throughout their experience. It is here that Gilson has realized his dream of owning a refined yet rustic neighborhood restaurant starring the farmer’s market fare he grew up with as a local farmer’s son. Gilson’s newest ventures are inside of a development called Cambridge Crossing and is three different concepts- The Lexington which is a neighborhood rooftop restaurant; Café Beatrice which is an all-day café serving pastries, sandwiches and salads; and Gepetto, an upscale Italian restaurant. In his spare time, Gilson can be found spending time with his wife, Molly, his daughters and their dog, Indy on their Groton farm.
