Taking its name from the Greek word for handmade, Organon in Chester offers gourmet-to-go meals; a variety of organic, gluten-free, and dairy-free products; pre-cooked lunches and dinners; and gourmet sandwiches and salads. All of the pre-cooked meals are made on premises by the full-time savory and pastry chefs on staff. A weekly suggestion chalkboard helps owners Pantelis “Peter” Kehayias and Yuko Hashimoto-Kehayias fill the shelves.
Organon prides itself on carrying many local, New Enlgand products, as well as those from half a dozen Chester-based businesses and farms. Kehayias and Hashimoto-Kehayias travel to farms and farmers markets to make contacts and source products, ensuring quality.
A delivery service is available within a 10-mile radius of Organon.
Prior to opening Organon, Peter Kehayias owned and operated Pattaconck 1850 Bar & Grill for 10 years before moving to Manhattan. He’s been back in the area for three years.
