Welcome to Campagna at the Bedford Post Inn
Altamarea Group and Chef Michael White, in partnership with Bedford Post Inn owner, Richard Gere, have opened the property’s flagship restaurant, Campagna. After undergoing renovations as well as the launch of The Barn and seasonal garden Grill, Campagna will serve Italian cuisine reflecting the beautiful country setting of the Inn while highlighting seasonal and local ingredients. Executive Chef PJ Calapa, of Altamarea Group properties Ai FIori & Costata, oversees the kitchen which is helmed daily by Chef di Cuisine Devin Bozkaya, formerly of the Inn at Little Washington.
“We are delighted to open Campagna in the Fall season and deepen our presence at the Bedford Post Inn. We thank Richard Gere for the confidence entrusted to us and look forward to welcoming guests and being part of the Bedford community", said Altamarea Group CEO Ahmass Fakahany.
“We at the Bedford Post are more than pleased, we are delighted to welcome Campagna to our inn. I have enormous respect for Michael White and Ahmass Fakahany and know they will take the whole Bedford Post experience to extraordinary new heights. What a wonderful addition to our community to have these world-class restauranteurs with us,” said property owner Richard Gere.
The main dining room hosts guests in either the Patio or Library sections. Both areas provide the warmth of the country setting with a subtle underlying elegance. Overall, the design changes served to invigorate the space but maintain its original essence. The redesigned Post Bar is central and serves as the primary bar for all the restaurants and the Inn. Guest attire is comfortable and casual.
