The dining room’s walnut tables will soon be filled with rabbit and squash dishes.”

Our Pick.

The County's newest farm-to-table restaurant is officially open and we're loving everything from the historic mansion it's housed in to the ever-changing seasonal menu. The atmosphere is cozy, the food is local and the wine list will have us coming back again and again! This new hot spot is open for breakfast and dinner, but make reservations because it's in high demand and tiny inside!
