The meal here was casual but the food was certainly good. We shared a delicious roasted beet salad, we also had lump crab cakes (excellent) and I had the Adirondack pizza which was also excellent. Dessert was a lovely and light lemon creme brûlée.

This is a great idea for a professional cooking school and bistro (and wine-tasting establishment) all built into one. We’ve never taken any of the cooking classes there, but many people are always filling the cooking classrooms (which are huge), and it looks like a...More
