I just wanted to thank everyone & give a short report:
Two NYC families spent the night in New Hope this weekend. We had a pretty good dinner @ Manon in Lambertsville - good service, cute place, the gnocchi with corn and tomatoes was very good, as was the pate; Delicious, warm rosemary rolls, good duck with peach sauce (not too sweet) short ribs were tasty but not wonderful, just ok bouillabaise, very good roasted chicken with a garlic cream sauce and two terrific desserts - pear tart and a dense, rich chocolate fudgy cake with a pecan crust. All in all, a pleasant , a little pricey, meal.
We also ended up going for breakfast the next morning to Full Moon, in Lambertville - great service, terrific omelettes - in and out quickly - what more could you want?
Thanks for all the advice!
