A farmer, a Michelin-starred chef, and a fireman walk into a bar. There’s no punchline; this was part of an actual scene during the opening week at Chatham’s new dining hot spot, Bimi’s Canteen and Bar. And it’s the exact type of community commingling the owners were hoping for when they opened in early June. “We’re a Hudson Valley restaurant,” says Ellen Waggett, who runs Bimi’s with her husband Christopher Landy. “By that I mean we serve food with locally sourced ingredients, as much as possible, to the eclectic community we’re in—from first responders, to business owners, to local celebrities.” The pair have owned Bimi’s Cheese Shop next door for the last 10 years, where they sell cheese sourced from both global and local purveyors, along with counter-service sandwiches, espresso, and more.
