Cafe 47 Press

"Given Lisa’s eye for detail, it’s fitting that she attracted Arik Bensimon to serve as her chef. A Culinary Institute of America grad, Chef Arik developed a serious following at LeFarm in Westport and Napa & Co, not to mention stints at Le Cirque and Picholine. Now in this café setting, he’s cooking for just five or six tables (plus a few more on the porch in season) and his pared-down menu showcases his talent. This is truly intimate dining." - Greenwich Magazine


"Arik lets his inspiration guide him when creating the daily menu – so there is not much point in talking about each dish specifically.  But one thing is for sure . you will get the same calibre of food that made all of you Fairfield county foodies fall in love with him in the first place.  Sure enough, everything I had there was well-executed, beautiful to look at and simply delicious." - Fairfield County Foodie
"Chef Arik’s incredible talent is again on display and available for everyone to enjoy. His ability to master tastes, textures, and incredible combinations in perfectly prepared dishes makes him one of the best chefs in the area." - CT bites
