Historic country Inn, really nice bar area and atmosphere from 1800's. Food is very good and service professional and friendly. On some nights the bar has live entertainment. Food is classic continential with a French inspiration. Duck and Lamb chops were especially good.

The Inn and the restaurant will be closing on Dec 31, 2016 and will be torn down and replaced with housing. Meanwhile, the restaurant is not up to its previous standards, but is still an attractive spot for a quiet dinner.

This beautiful restaurant I visited with my father several years ago when they had piano playing in the bar. The food was wonderful and my father brought many of his New York City clients there. I just love the historical ambiance of this wonderful Inn.
