Best of Delaware 2011: Food and Restaurant: Farm-to-Table Restaurant: Fair Hill Inn in Elkton, Maryland
Fair Hill Inn
3370 Singerly Road, Elkton, Md., (410) 398-4187, fairhillinn.com
No matter how overloaded the farm-to-table bandwagon gets, Fair Hill Inn is still miles ahead. Chefs Phil Pyle Jr. and Brian Shaw’s aptly named “Farmstead Cuisine” comes from their backyard plot and house-butchered meats. They even churn their own butter. With a little help from Whimsical Farms in Newark and Sassafras River Beef in Maryland, the menu at Fair Hill changes monthly and never repeats a dish.
