Many years ago, the Horse & Hound was up there with the region's great restaurants (Stonehenge, Fox Hill).
The website says that the current owners have done a casual/Mediterranean thing for the past twelve years.
Has anyone been there? I wonder if it's worth our time just to go see the old place. I'm afraid that I'll just get very frustrated if they've done a major re-decoration of the fabulous old dining rooms. Worse, do I really want to spoil my memory of this place by eating a burger (or "chicken marsala") there?
I know there must be 'hounds that remember what this place once was... I've been thinking about going for a couple of years now and actually almost pulled off the highway at Route 35 two weeks ago on the way back to CT from NYC.
So what say you? Should I just keep the memories and forget about the visit or should I brave it and try not to be discouraged? Could it be that these new owners actually have something going on that's worthy of the Horse & Hound history? I'd be delighted to hear good things...
