Farm To Table

Farm to Table

At Bistro West we have an authentic farm to table approach that begins each day at The West Farm. With these dedicated three acres at The West Farm, our goal is to produce most of all the herbs, fruits and vegetables required for our West Village restaurants.

The West Farm is located just a few miles from West Village off El Camino Real in Carlsbad. The farm’s close proximity to our restaurants, Bistro West & West Steak and Seafood, make it an ideal location for our chefs to plant, review and harvest the season’s produce daily. At West our farm is personal. The nurturing and harvesting of the soil are performed by our team and culinary professionals who craft the menus around the seasons.
