Using Our Own Ingredients
Asa Ransom House is one of the few Clarence restaurants with farm to table cuisine. While many restaurants have begun to promote farm to table cuisine, at Asa Ransom House it’s much more than that. Owner/Innkeeper Robert Lenz planted the organic herb garden 40 years ago, and those herbs have become part of their award-winning cuisine at this elegant Clarence, New York restaurant ever since. The garden is a masterpiece in itself, and is a highlight on the annual Garden Walk. During the growing season the 1,250-foot garden is transformed with seventy herbs including sage, basil, marjoram, chives, oregano, thyme and parsley, lavender, anise and more. Tomatoes, strawberries, grapevines and currant bushes grow nearby. Guests are welcome to stroll the grounds and to take in the beautiful surroundings at Asa Ransom House, one of the best restaurants near Buffalo, New York.
