Michael Levesque //
Chef de Cuisine / Farm Director
Over a decade after they launched Dandelion Catering, Maine natives Christine and Christian Hayes built The Garrison, an intimate dining room and bar surrounded by the rushing Royal River on both sides.
Chef Christian Hayes, a Food Network Chopped Champion and former rock and roll frontman, with his team, serve his brand of "thoughtful food" inspired by Mediterranean and Asian cuisine.
Since day one, outside the dining room lies an ever growing garden that is planted, managed, and harvested by Mike. Besides his touch in the kitchen, Mike brings a wealth of agricultural knowledge that will allow The Garrison's garden program to grow bigger with each season. Mike credits most of his achievements to the 1996 Sega Saturn multi-genre game, Mr. Bones.
Watch Zach Boyce's short film on the opening of The Garrison.
