In what might be the most blatant act of Haute Barnyard marketing yet, Tocqueville has introduced a new Greemmarket menu (paired with “organic, sustainable, or biodynamic” wines, naturally), and when you buy it, you get your very own Greenmarket bag. Because, after being inspired by the asparagus salad, wild-ramp-and-English-pea risotto, and salmon in lovage broth, you are bound to feel impelled to run down to the market and start buying your own local vegetables in short order. And it wouldn’t do to use disposable plastic bags for a job like that! The menu begins tomorrow for both lunch ($36) and dinner ($48); it's $30 extra for the wine pairing. Dirt to sprinkle on your shoes is optional.
