About the Chef -
From New York’s famed French Culinary Institute to the kitchens of New Jersey’s most prestigious restaurants, the Rocky Hill Inn’s Chef Proprietor Evan Blomgren, brings his unique fare and flair to this Colonial era-inn, set in the historic village of Rocky Hill. The past is present in its elegantly restored dining room, convivial tavern and charming private dining room. Chef Evan’s cuisine, with its handcrafted oils, natural flavorings, and farm-to-table freshness are very much of the moment.
Chef Blomgren honed his skills at several of Central New Jersey’s finest restaurants, including Lahiere’s in Princeton, Chamber’s Walk in Lawrenceville, The Metuchen Inn, Church Street Bistro in Lambertville and across the Delaware at Martine’s in New Hope.
A graduate of the prestigious French Culinary Institute, Chef Evan combines classical training with his own vision and the bounty of produce, cheese, fish and meats available in Central New Jersey and nearby Pennsylvania.
He is a member of Slow Food’s Central New Jersey Chapter and finds the organization’s mission a perfect fit with the Rocky Hill Inn’s dedication to sustainable farming and healthy food. “Slow Food’s motto is ‘From Plate to Planet’,” he notes. “Slow Food links the pleasure of food with a commitment to community and the environment. That’s exactly where we want the Rocky Hill Inn to be.”
It's a Three Generation Family Business
