When this smart bar and restaurant opened last summer, chef Max Watson was so impressed by the bounty of fresh produce that local farmers were supplying him with, he had a chalkboard installed in the dining room. Under the heading "Fresh From the Farm," Watson began listing that week's fresh fruits and vegetables without naming the dishes created from them. Now it's a list of vegetable dishes reflecting the seasonal produce on hand. (One recent night, the list included fried okra, fried green tomatoes and grilled eggplant.) "The intention," Watson says, "is to always have at least one dish made from local fruits and vegetables." He knows that this will be harder during the winter months, but if anyplace in town has positioned itself to keep the veggies coming through the cold, it's Remedy.
