Grandview Inn in Jaffrey, NH

The restaurant at the Inn opened on Friday night and we visited on Sat night. Despite a couple kinks (to be expected on only the second night!), we had a great meal in unique atmosphere. The restaurant is in the old barn next to the Inn. The barn has been restored beautifully: gleaming hardwood floors, soaring ceiling (interestingly, built as an inverted ship's hull and lit to highlight the intricate woodwork). Seared tuna to start, rack of lamb (so tender I could have cut it with a butter knife) served with a bleu cheese popover (interesting accompaniment - crispy on the outside, warm and chewy inside with a good but not overpowering bleu cheese flavor). Blueberry creme brulee for dessert - one of the few kinks of the evening, the creme was still chilled from the refrigerator, which marred the texture and flavor - but a minor point at the end of a delighful meal). The wine list is small but well-priced. As a side note, the inn is a antique house lover's dream - built in the 1700s. The rooms are furnished with antiques and ours had a view of Mount Monadnock. There is also a spa located next to the restaurant with a full range of treatments. Great for a weekend away!!
