CARMEL, NY – County Executive MaryEllen Odell is pleased to announce that Tilly’s Table, the restaurant and event venue located on the Putnam County-owned Tilly Foster Farm and Educational Institute in Brewster, has surpassed its 2018 budgeted revenue and profit expectations within the first-half of the year. Through July, Tilly’s Table, which includes the restaurant and the events, has generated a profit of $69,565. The revenue from this year expected to be $660,000, which is $380,000 higher than originally budgeted.
“Tilly’s Table is becoming the keystone to Tilly Foster Farm and Educational Institute’s sustainability,” County Executive MaryEllen Odell said. “The success of Tilly’s Table has not been overnight or without a great deal of hard work from many stakeholders including multiple Putnam County Departments, Homestyle Caterers, BOCES, vendors and customers. The cooperation, patience, and perseverance of all have allowed Tilly’s Table to ‘turn the corner’ so to speak on a path to sustainability and greater heights.”
Putnam County Chairman of the Legislature Joseph Castellano agrees.
“This is great news for the people of Putnam County,” said Legislator Castellano. “We are already seeing a return from our investment in Tilly Foster Farm and Educational Institute.”
Tilly’s Table, which is run through a public-private partnership with Homestyle Caterers, has opened its doors to dinner on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings, as well as Sunday brunch. It also hosts comedy and musical acts as well as private events. In July, Tilly’s Table hosted its first wedding.
“Tilly’s Table provides a great ambiance and a delicious menu that includes farm-to-table dishes from items grown on this farm,” said Al Ciuffetelli, owner of Homestyle Caterers. “I am excited about the success of Tilly’s Table. Every day we are meeting new customers and welcoming back returning ones who become regulars. It is a good recipe for continued growth.”
