newman.jpgPaul Newman is going beyond the popcorn, salad dressing, and other items from the popular ‘Newman’s Own’ brand and opening an eco-restaurant in Connecticut. Called, appropriately enough, The Dressing Room, the farmhouse-style building features,

“Recycled barn wood walls, a fieldstone fireplace, soap and towels that are biodegradable; and, the food is eco-gastronomic: organic, healthy and — whenever possible- regionally grown.”

Newman isn’t just helping the environment. He’s also gone ahead and helped fund the $18 million dollar restoration of a neighboring theatre, and also supported the weekly farmer’s market that’s held in its parking lot each week. There are additional plans to ‘start a Colonial/ Native American edible schoolyard at Staples High School, and to establish an endowment for culinary scholarships for students of underprivileged communities.’

While the menu isn’t quite vegetarian, sensitive meat-eaters will be happy to know that care is taken when using animals in the dishes. “Newman — who is known to cook quite a good burger himself — had no qualms about it. Hence, the “P.L. Newman Burger” is made of Niman Ranch beef from cattle raised without hormones or antibiotics on small-scale farms. (The pickles, lettuce and tomatoes are available when in season.)”

Go Paul! Check out the restaurant’s website here. And — if you get the chance to visit — let us know how it was!
