Yankee pot roast is a most comforting
comfort food dish across New England but results do vary.
Some restaurants serve this popular meal in large portions, other
small. The price can range from great value for the money to
outrageously expensive -- the latter all in the name of a few fancy
"gourmet" adjectives. Taste runs the gamut from truly homemade to
frozen food supermarket quality. Other restaurants totally screw up a
perfectly fine traditional meal by getting too fancy and using a weird
mix of ingredients that ultimately result in something distant from
authentic Yankee pot roast.
Mostly, however, local restaurants do a good-to-excellent job making
Yankee pot roast. The Gentleman Farmer Restaurant in
Chepachet, R.I. is one of those hall
of fame-type places for Yankee pot roast.
note: The Gentleman Farmer Restaurant's Yankee pot roast is
listed as a
special on the menu so be sure to call first at (401 371-2683 before
embarking on your visit.
This unassuming, humble,
welcoming little roadside diner-like
restaurant located in the Rhode Island countryside makes the best
Yankee pot roast we've ever tasted. The beef is virtually melt-in-your
mouth tender with a
perfect flavor. It's like the presence of a grandmother with an innate
knack for making delicious homemade food from her kitchen honed in on
The Gentleman Farmer and graced the diner with truly homemade Yankee
pot roast. Truth is, however, that this hard-working, genuine
family-owned business knows how to make excellent homemade meals for
breakfast, lunch and dinner with the Yankee pot roast, in particular,
warming up the palate in a most satisfying, satiating way.
What's more, The Gentleman Farmer Restaurant serves up Yankee pot roast
in a generous portion at a more-than-reasonable price. The
accompanying sides follow in a classic comfort foods kind of way
with vibrantly colored, perfectly-seasoned butternut squash and real
mashed potatoes. The yummy gravy just adds to an already fantastic meal.
We can hardly wait to feast again on this amazing meal, as well as
other dishes at the Gentleman Farmer Restaurant. How nice it is to have
discovered this type of off-the-beaten-path restaurant that happens to
make a wonderful Yankee pot roast!

Restaurant is located at is 617 Putnam Pike (Route 44) in
