About the Farmhouse

A tiny seed was planted on a balcony on the lower east side of New York City’s Clinton St. where Dora’s first garden was planted... it was carried to the Admiral Dot Farm in Cornville, Maine, the founder’s family namesake farm, and that’s where our story begins …

A woman run business, Dora Tavel-Sanchez Luz, has over twenty five years of combined experience working in restaurants in Los Angeles, New York City, and Boston. 


Planted in Needham, is this cozy, farm-to-table restaurant which sources organic and local ingredients.  Their staff is passionate about food, libations, and caring for the guest.  They strive to enrich each guest's experience by providing warm, knowledgeable, unpretentious service and hospitality. 


All are welcome. Dora journeyed around New England to use reclaimed wood from barns being torn down and old dilapidated farm houses to create the rustic ambience that we boast.


In the Farmhouse, it is our hope you will feel transplanted to a rustic elegant farmhouse, like their family farm in Cornville, Maine - enjoying the hand-crafted cocktails and clean flavors of local, organic, contemporary American cuisine.
