AAA Inspector Notes
Inspector Pick (Eclectic/Unusual): History buffs will absolutely adore the story here, as the mood and decor is pure Alexander Hamilton-era New York. The food is good, too.
Historic. Originally an 18th-century carriage house owned by Aaron Burr—Alexander Hamilton's deadly dueling foe—the period details of the lovely interiors and the courtyard make for a romantic, candlelit setting. Diners can enjoy classic meals like beef Wellington, seared tuna, breaded veal chop, and sweet and savory foie gras. As you dine and soak 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, from which 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 many years. A New York gem.
