Foxborough, MA 02035
Grown from a collective passion for fresh, creatively-inspired food and wine, Tastings Wine Bar & Bistro brings sophisticated fare to Foxborough via a menu of globally inspired dishes that use local farm-fresh ingredients (from the land and the sea). The wine list pulls bottles from all over the world, enabling wine drinkers to experience the best in flavor combinations whether they're trying a new varietal or revisiting a much loved vintage.
Housed in Patriot Place, the relaxed, totally unpretentious restaurant overlooks the north end zone of Gillette Stadium with a striking view of the iconic lighthouse and the Patriots Hall of Fame. Not a bad alternative to tailgating - though Tastings will draw fans whether the Pats are home or away.

Executive Chef Benjamin Lacy's is a fully engaged culinarian whose diverse cooking talents and passion for food is what inspires his menus at Tastings Wine Bar & Bistro.
Lacy's experimentation with food started at the age of four. As the first to rise in his household, he soon learned how to make breakfast for himself. His Chinese mother and Irish American father exposed him to a wide variety of both conflicting and complementary flavors and cultures. A large multi-cultural extended family and an always-filled kitchen have fostered a love of eclectic cooking.
He pursued this culinary interest part-time while attending Providence College, working as a summer grill cook at the Hopkinton Country Club where, his early dalliance with life as a chef took root. While completing his economics degree, Lacy maintained an on-campus cooking and bakery position. At the same time, he rose through the ranks at the Country Club during the summers and weekends. When he emerged as a magna cum laude graduate with a Bachelor of Arts degree, he had acquired valuable hands-on training in both cooking and baking, making him an attractive addition to Sel de la Terre at the Natick Collection.
He honed his craft as Sous Chef at Sel de la Terre in Natick and then as Executive Sous Chef at Union Bar and Grill in the South End where he expanded his scope of experience preparing his premium fare in a fast paced metropolitan environment. These collective experiences have fueled his unending and colorful imagination in the kitchen and landed him a position at Tastings Wine Bar & Bistro.
As Executive Chef at Tastings Wine Bar & Bistro, Lacy is intensely involved in the preparation, presentation and flavor array of all of his dishes. Among his specialties are varied selections of charcuteries, smoked meats, pastas and braises. His favorite meals to prepare and enjoy are hearty comfort foods like stews, cassoulets, and roasts.
Lacy promotes the use of locally grown farm fresh ingredients to deliver a premium dining experience reflecting the fresh flavors of New England. He participates in Massachusetts and Rhode Island sustainable food co-ops and locally sources the restaurant's organic produce, eggs and poultry.
For Lacy, kitchen life is learning about good food, preparing it in a way that celebrates its truest flavors and sharing it with his guests.
