Bimi’s Canteen19 Main Street, Chatham
In May, Chatham’s beloved cheese shop, Bimi’s, will throw open the doors to their new bar/restaurant Bimi’s Canteen. In the kitchen, chef and Chatham native Josh Kelly will turn out a hyperlocal and cheese-forward menu (macaroni gratin, anyone? Fondue?). The opening entre list includes indulgent picks like a Grimaldi Farms organic culotte steak; Overlook Farms roasted chicken served with saffron rice, Pucker’s pak dong, and grilled lime; and a traditional French bouillabaisse. Pastry chef Claire Raposo is a decorated Le Cordon Bleu alum, while the bar program is headed up by Boulud group veteran Andrey Matseyev.
