    Oh, they also have lots and lots of steaks from Tilldale Farm and desserts like pain perdu with Bananas Foster & ice cream. One more "oh" -- they’re spit-roasting a pig every Saturday. See you there.

    Take a walk in the countryside with daily specials such as salt cod beignets with peppadew gribiche and rabbit ragout with polenta, and top off your evening with silky chocolate mousse and maybe another glass (or two) from their serious wine cellar.

    Oh yeah… five types of mac and cheese (jalapeño chorizo, carbonara, etc.), because having one type of mac and cheese is for more austere times like the ones at Sturbridge Village.
