Barbara Lynch Collective



James Beard Award-winner, Relais & Chateaux Grand Chef, and Time 100 Most Influential Person, Chef Barbara Lynch is regarded as one of Boston’s – and the country’s – leading chefs and restaurateurs. Established in 1998, the Barbara Lynch Collective encompasses eight celebrated restaurants.


Growing programs were developed for both No. 9 Park and Menton for a duration of eight weeks to address two different objectives. No. 9 Park sought consistent reliable delivery of high quality produce for the restaurant’s signature dish, Prune Stuffed Gnocchi - a menu highlight since 1998. Menton sought diversity of difficult to access micro-produce for research and menu development.
