Middletown, NY 10940
This Zagat-rated downtown restaurant draws loyal customers who savor its gourmet meals served in a relaxed setting with brick walls and gentle lighting. Lunch and dinner options range from seafood crêpes to veal Budapest, plus the eatery boasts an award-winning wine list. But customers especially swoon over the homemade Bailey’s Irish Cream Cheesecake, which chef/owner Franz Brendle describes as “New York-style, and made with a generous amount” of tasty Bailey’s booze. Some foodies swear the first mouthful is akin to a religious experience.
