I am visiting my mom in Goshen this weekend and we are bringing another couple. We just grill out when visiting my mom or hit Bohemian Pizza but we'd like to show the other couple some local atmosphere without driving too far. Years ago I had an event at the Toll Gate Inn in Litchfield and it was fabulous-- great old historic dining room and great food. But that was years ago and I haven't been since-- I can't seem to find recent reviews. Anyone been lately?
What about other local spots (within a 15-20 min drive)? I was thinking about a fun casual night at the Village Pub on the green-- but again ate there years ago and see it's been panned here more recently. I don't want to do anything like West Street Grill or CT-- we are from NYC and these don't have the country casual atmosphere I'm looking for. My mom said Bohemian Pizza has gone downhill lately too.
Another option I was considering was White Horse Tavern-- but this is really pushing it distance wise. Any ideas/suggestions?
