I absolutely love coming across amazing things by my friends on the internet. This one especially. It is a photo essay and interview by my friend Fiona Breslin and Grace Villamil about my friend Mark Firth. For those of you who don’t know Mark the names of his restaurants are pretty much household names for anyone who has spent anytime in NYC. He founded Diner, Marlow and Sons and the long since shuddered Bonita(the Fort Greene one was a personal favorite!). A few years ago Mark left the urban life with his wife Bettina and two kids in tow and relocated to the Berkshires where I grew up and still spend a great deal of my time. Fiona’s article captures Mark in his element farming and hanging both on his property and on the porch of his new restaurant Praire Whale in Great Barrington, MA. Head over to Freunde von Freunden to see all the photos and read the interview.
