Looking for places like Eigensinn Farms within a couple hour’s drive from the city...

Chef prepared meals, local meats and produce, contemporary, etc.

Let me know if you have suggestions. Thank you.

(Eigensinn Farms is N/A on the day I want to go)

    Eigensinn Farm is pretty unique, so you won't have much luck looking for something comparable. There are some wineries in the Niagara area that offer lunch or dinner along with wine tastings. One of my favourite is Featherstone Winery in Jordan, ON.(www.featherstonewinery.ca) but Peninsula Ridge also has a nice kitchen.

      What about Stone Road Grille in Niagara? Universally appreciated. They do their own charcuterie and source locally. Lots of accommodation options in the area. Plus other good food destinations.

        Also in the Niagara region, another great restaurant with a farm to table philosophy - Treadwell. It's like learning to taste food all over again. Plus, it's got an adorable patio overlooking the river.
