In late January, Carl LaGrassa, a co-owner of the Pluckemin Inn, died. Now I hear that David Felton, the executive chef, has departed (reported on a NJ Monthly blog). Does anyone know what, if anything, is going on here?
I always liked dining at the Inn but I must say that my last experience there was definitely sub par. Food was very ordinary and service was tentative. Perhaps the server was new but he was very unsure of himself and didn't seem well informed about the menu selections. The service wasn't bad, just not what I'm used to.
