Award-winning chef Michael White will soon be opening Campagna, an elegant new restaurant in the former Farmhouse at Bedford Post Inn.
Local restaurant aficionados have been anxiously awaiting the reopening since early this year, whenactor Richard Gere, a Pound Ridge resident, gave up control of the restaurant.
As a partner in the Altamarea Group, White owns and supervises more than a dozen international restaurants, including New York’s Marea, recipient of two Michelin stars, and Ai Fiori, which currently holds one Michelin star.
Born and raised in Wisconsin, White went from a hometown job at Domenico’s Pizza to learning the artistry of a Chef di Cucina at the San Domenico Restaurant in northern Italy. After a number of years abroad, he returned to America and began building his remarkable career.
