With four James Beard Foundation Award nominations for Best Chef: Northeast, three Cochon 555 wins, and a spot on Food & Wine’s 40 Under 40 Big Thinkers in America list, chef Matt Jennings is recognized nationally for his bold, lusty cooking, and his dedication to New England artisan and seasonal ingredients. After a decade of success with his restaurant Farmstead in Providence, Jennings returned to his native city of Boston in February 2015 to open Townsman, a New England brasserie that pays homage to his deep roots in the area, showcasing his commitment to locality and love of the Northeast. Townsman was named one of Esquire’s Best New Restaurants in America; USA Today named it one of the 10 Best New Restaurants in the country; and Food & Wine included Townsman in their list of 10 Restaurants of the Year.
