This place is great and you can even have fun playing bowling! The food is good, very fresh and the menu is updated regularly. Service is great! We already came back a few times and continue having this place as our go-to for a relaxing...weekend away from the craziness of New York.More

It's been a month since my wife and I have eaten here and we are still convinced it is one of the best meals we've ever had. Looks at how many reviews I have on TripAdvisor, we eat out a lot; this is the cream...of the crop. The decor is perfect for the area. It an old building with a classic bar, long tables with dividers, an approachable open kitchen and a bowling alley. Yes, a bowling alley! Apparently when restoring the building they found this feature and said let's restore the bowling alley and put the kitchen in there. Brilliant! The menu is printed each day. I love places like these where the chef concocts a daily menu. After we ordered we were invited to bowl while we wait. To make the experience even better, the chef is working in an open kitchen in the bowling alley room. My wife and were chatting with him about his training and how the owner lets him have a lot of creative freedom and that's how he comes up with his dishes. He was also explaining what he was doing with some of the dishes he was making for us. It made me even more excited. The first thing that came out was the halloumi cheese. As I have told anyone willing to listen, it is the best appetizer my wife and I have ever had. Without question. The cheese was cooked perfectly with a crisp outside and soft center. The dip chosen to accompany was a red pepper cream sauce with a variety of other spices. I was making happy sounds while eating. I'm salivating now while writing this thinking about that dish. Then came out the main courses. My wife got the filet and I got the gnocchi. The presentation, especially the filet, was like a work of art. We admired it for a little but the delectable smells forced us to dig in. And oh my, the flavors. The perfectly cooked meat. The obviously homemade gnocchi, which we watched the chef make while bowling. The pesto sauce that accompanied both our dishes. Heck, even the potatoes can came with the steak were like a mix of potato skins and fries. I do not think I can do justice to how good this meal was. So stop reading, make a reservation, and find out for yourself!More

This was a surprise, very simple decor and the care and comfort of the food was amazing. People could not be any friendly.

A charming inn with a superb restaurant serving farm to table, haute cuisine in a rescued building, in which Rip Van Winkle would have felt at home, located in a tiny, zero traffic light hamlet that is so far off the beaten path that it...truly merits the Michelin definition of a 2 star restaurant, in that it is worth going out of your way to eat there. The restaurant has long tables which are sectioned off by little bundling boards to accommodate each party. The kitchen is located in a long narrow building that, when renovated, was discovered to contain 2 preserved bowling alleys with hand set pins, built in 1868. So while waiting for dinner, you and a pin setting friend can bowl a few frames or sit at the chef's bar and watch him craft. The food was terrific. We had grilled peppers with ricotta for an appetizer [Blistered Shishito $8]. Scallops, sweet and tender with a flavorful crust. Beef perfectly pink with a black peppery crust - the green bean sides the best I've ever tasted. [Salsa Verde Bavette $32]. Finished with maple, plum custard so good you'll never accept a creme brullee as substitute. Because each meal is handmade, they can serve only a few diners at a time, so make a reservation and don't just drop by. We didn't stay at the inn, but the public room was charming and the stairs creaky with age. The restaurant has shiplap walls and the whole place is warm and inviting. Don't let the grim exterior of the building scare you away.More
