Welcome to Campagna at the Bedford Post Inn
Altamarea Group and Chef Michael White, in partnership with Bedford Post Inn owner, Richard Gere, will open the property’s flagship restaurant, Campagna, this week. After undergoing some renovations and first opening the Barn and the Garden Grill, Campagna will serve Italian cuisine reflecting the beautiful country setting of the Inn and highlighting seasonal and local ingredients. Executive Chef PJ Calapa, of Altamarea Group properties Ai FIori & Costata, will oversee Campagna. The kitchen will be 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 restaurateurs with us,” said property owner Richard Gere.
The main dining room will host guests at either the Patio or Library sections. Both areas will 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 will be at the center and serve as the primary bar for all the restaurants and the Inn. Guest attire is comfortable and casual.
Campagna’s opening will introduce a fresh redesign of the food & beverage operations at the Inn. The menu will highlight the Italian core but not be limited strictly to Italian dishes or influences during the course of the year. Campagna’s relaxed atmosphere will allow for a simple weeknight dinner, a more elegant occasion or a special event. Flexibility in dining is reflected in the ease of the menu options offering a selection of antipasti, pastas, pesce, carne and vegetable contorini.. At Campagna, you should feel as if you are at someone’s home for dinner, eating food inspired by the seasonality of the local environment in the company of family and friends. In this regard, Campagna is proud to source its produce from local farms and vendors whose offerings will be highlighted on the menu.
Menu highlights include Panzanella di Passera, fluke crudo, tomato confit, castelvetrano olives and croutons, Granchio jumbo lump crab, almonds, golden raisins and crème fraiche vinaigrette, and Insalata di Astice nova scotia lobster, celery root caponata, black truffle and cervil. In typical Altamarea Group fashion, all pastas will be hand made on premise. Pasta selections include Creste Nero shrimp, squid, scallop, calabrian chile, tarragon and Rotolo Bolognese blanco, kale and parmigiano. Entrée selections include Astice lobster fricassee, hen of the woods mushrooms, parsnip, pearl onion and Pollo half chicken, pomodoro, cremini mushroom, polenta, olives and ricotta salata. Dessert selections by Pastry Chef Jim Eckler will also be reflective of the seasonality of the local area. Sample items include Crèma di Mela cinnamon custard, slow roasted apple, smoked maple gelee, honey gelato and Torta di Limon meyer lemon jelly roll, yogurt mousse, lemon confit, meyer lemon thyme sorbet.
The beverages program overseen by Wine Director Terence Miller offers highly allocated selections from Italy with complementing international company focusing on France & USA. The cocktail program is full of NYC Classics and beers from Italian and local breweries.
