I'm meeting a friend for lunch, next Saturday, and halfway turns out to be Canaan, CT, where there don't appear to be any restaurants. We are sixty- somethings looking for a New England style old inn or some kind of warm, gracious environment where we can catch up after several years in an attractive environment that is not too busy and noisy. Ideas are the following: In Salisbury, the White Horse Inn or the Boxing Horse Grill; In Lakeville, the Boathouse, the Interlaken Inn, Pastorale, The Woodland, and Carriages; the Swiss Hutte in Hillsdale, NY, the Southfield Store in Southfield, MA. Of course, we care about the food, but are more interested in a hospitable environment rather than a busy, commercial restaurant. We are talking Saturday for a long lunch. Several of these rural eateries might only be open for dinner. We would be open, also to Great Barrington, Norfolk, South Egremont, Ashley, or other town nearby. I would be so grateful to hear of anyone with information on any of these places or to suggest new ones and thanks in advance.
