Flavor Profile: Bailey's Backyard in Ridgefield
Turnips. The day after eating at the new Bailey's Backyard, I couldn't stop thinking of the baby turnips in the scallop dish. Plump, heart-shaped, a bit of their bright green stems showing, they'd vied for attention with the delicate bay scallops in thyme butter over a soft bed of sweet-savory carrot purée. The dishes on the revitalized menu of this American restaurant in downtown Ridgefield shows a light touch and balance of fresh, seasonal, local ingredients under new executive chef Forrest Pasternack.
