AAA Inspector Notes
Historic. The candlelit setting make for a lushly romantic meal in a historical setting. The renovated village location was originally an 18th-century carriage house owned by Aaron Burr—US Vice-President and, most famously, Alexander Hamilton's deadly dueling foe. Period details grace lovely interiors and a courtyard. Diners can enjoy such classics as Beef Wellington, seared tuna, breaded veal chop, and sweet and savory foie gras. While soaking in the history, a pianist plays New York standards. The large windows at the front of the restaurant open in summer to the small narrow street, with a lounge and small tables comfortably spread about to soak in a most sublime atmosphere on a warm night. The fireplace is lit in winter. In such a setting one can easily imagine a time of horses trotting on cobblestones, notions of civility and an earlier American age. It is no wonder that the storied restaurant has garnered such a fondness from diners over the years.
