Cultivar, a horticultural term that refers to combining cuttings from the best plants to create a new plant with the finest characteristics, is a metaphor for Chef Mary Dumont’s flagship restaurant.

Cultivar’s 88-seat dining room combines natural-rustic materials with an upscale, refined aesthetic, reflecting Dumont’s modern garden culinary approach. Beginning with the hydroponic Freight Farms garden on the 55-seat outdoor patio, horticulture pervades the décor throughout, from the tree branch-inspired chandeliers to the Japanese Kokedama garden suspended from the ceiling—a steel framework housing floating balls of moss displaying seasonal flora—and wooden butcher block tabletops. The 12-seat bar features a long slab of live-edge wood, nodding to the copper beech trees that grew at the childhood homes of both Dumont and her wife Emily French-Dumont, who assisted in Cultivar’s interior design, accented with galvanized metal panels reclaimed from chicken coops.
