James Beard-nominated chef Matt Jennings, formerly of Farmstead in Providence, wants to upend your conceptions of American cuisine. Craving some clam chowder? Townsman ladles a creamy concoction elevated with pork and squid. Hankering for a hanger steak? Better prepare for a side of sweetbreads. Even a simple deviled egg gets the four-star treatment with crispy hen skin. If you want to ease into Jennings’s lauded menu, head to the bar for crudos, cheeses and charcuteries with a dry gin martini served with “all the fixin’s.”
