If feeding the world one organic farm at a time seems like a tall order, it should be mentioned that vision runs in Musk's blood. Sitting on the boards of Tesla, SpaceX and Chipotle, this entrepreneur offers that rare combination of creative genius and problem-solving pragmatism; after a few minutes in his company you come away with the impression that the words "never" and "impossible" are probably not part of his vocabulary. Back in the kitchen, Gates, a 10-year veteran of Union Square Cafe in New York, takes pride in the restaurant's mission. "I think Kimbal's philosophy, 'Real Food For Real People,' truly says it all," he says. "We thoroughly investigate each farm before we get into a relationship with them. Some of the farms are surprised by our questions, but our suppliers are very transparent and take great pride in what they do. We really love working with Mad Farmers Collective, who bring us some amazing products." As for what is on the plate, don't just take it from us: call ahead to make a reservation or face a potentially long wait, because the food is everything we expected it to be, and then some. Our personal favorites include the succulent rockfish tacos, the perfectly balanced yellowfin ceviche and, of course, the now- famous sticky toffee pudding, a looser variant on the sometimes stodgy British classic. roughout the menu, flavors are intense, fresh and vibrant, and the recipes are designed to bring out the most from each ingredient. "You pull food out of the soil in the morning and serve it in the afternoon," Musk says. "It will taste amazing, and you will want to eat it." He's right. Of course. sl Hedge Row American Bistro is located at 350 Massachusetts Ave. For more information, visit hedgerowbistros.com. slmag.net 85
