An adventure, a destination, an experience.


Outstanding in the Field was founded by Jim Denevan in 1999 as a radical alternative to the conventional dining experience. Rather than source ingredients for a restaurant, we bring our restaurant to the source.

Over the last twenty years, our culinary caravan has reached all fifty U.S. states and fifteen countries around the globe.


We aim to connect diners to the origins of their food while celebrating the hardworking hands that feed us: farmers, chefs, fisherpeople, cheesemakers, vintners, brewers and many more. We’re honored to have welcomed some of the world’s most renowned chefs and artisans into our field kitchen.


Our roving restaurant without walls is rebuilt every morning and disappears every night. It is a momentary experience and a joyful celebration of human connection. Together we gather at one long table to share the most fundamental and universal human conversation: a meal.
