Had dinner here last night and was most impressed. We had not been there since Pip's closed. The new owners have done a great job in remodeling including a much needed face lift to the gardens. I started with an evening appetizer special, grilled octopus. The flesh had been marinated in red wine then grilled leaving a great char. The dish was accompanied by white beans and grilled citrus fruit. The fruit was a sublime counterpoint to the octopus. A great starter. My entrée was Branzino Provencal. Two filets were served with spinach, tomato almond chutney, and capers. The fish was perfectly cooked with a nice crunch to the skin side. My lady had the Boston Bibb Salad with anjou pear, pomegranate, goat cheese, and an orange vinaigrette. For the main course she had pan seared Diver Scallops with a lobster corn risotto. Both courses were perfectly prepared and delicious. The wine list is very impressive with not just French wines but wines from all over the world. We enjoyed a crisp Sancerre. We dined on the porch overlooking the garden. The general manager visited each table to chat and ensure all was well.(a nice touch rarely seen today) Sadly, they have changed their bread provider not as great as it once was. All in all a lovely evening with a beautiful venue. I would highly recommend a visit by any hounds who have not dined there since the new owners purchased the inn.
