Happy Birthday to The Runner–we wish you many, many, many prosperous years more.

The Runner is named after Walt Whitman’s poem of the same name, has a wood-burning oven at the center of its cooking philosophy.  The extensive menu has many seasonal items including, wood-fired baked breads, vegetables and main dishes like lamb shoulder with plum sauce, culotte steak “Diane,” and a whole roast chicken for two; shaved brussel sprout, cabbage and kale with hazelnut dressing, and pickled and roasted beets with parsley, walnuts and a red wine vinaigrette; mashed potatoes with gruyere, whole beans with duck confit, and wild rice and kabocha squash.

Seafood is procured fresh everyday and includes dishes such as: salt-baked trout with a caper sauce as well as freshly-shucked oysters, served raw, roasted, and in sandwiches. For dessert: a take on carrot pudding, tipsy cake, plus a variety of homemade ice creams, including fennel and molasses.

The Runner is owned by Gastro Coterie, Art Winter and Richard Winter.
