What does a restaurant as hyper-local as Homestead—a West Town rooftop bistro that grows much of the produce on its fresh, comfort-food menu—do when cold weather shuts down the gardening season? Throw a big dinner party, and then say goodbye until next spring. Last Saturday, we dropped in as the restaurant’s final guests of the year raised their glasses over candlelit plates of lamb tartare, braised pork belly, and other farm-to-table fare.
