The Inn at Pound Ridge is Chef Jean Georges latest restaurant. The Inn, is located in an old country style house (formerly used as a residence) at 258 Westchester Avenue, Pound Ridge, NY. The Inn has features of a country farm house with old wood beams juxtaposed with modern furniture. The designer, Thomas Juul-Hansen, used reclaimed wood and marble accent stone to make for a very rustic environment. There are 4 fireplaces at the Inn, a large wine cellar which seats a large party/event. There are two floors both with restaurant seating and a bar.
Chef Jean Georges creates such a delicious, yet simple farm to table cuisine. The menu includes Pizza, Tuna Tartare, a Salume plate, Burgers, Pastas and many more. The cocktails are delicious and are made from fresh seasonal ingredients and house made syrups.
The staff seemingly look as if they are all models are very pleasant and helpful. Reservations are a MUST. You must call way, way in advance. The reservations policy is probably the most difficult, however, the food is what I call “delicious simplicity”.
If you’re lucky, you may even run into a celebrity or two or three or four. But it is best to let them have their privacy.
Prices are…. not inexpensive BUT you will enjoy the food and cocktails. I would say an average is $35-40 per person depending on your order. Appetizers range from $7-19; Dinner prices range from $16-$38 (not including the sides).
The Inn is closed on Monday’s. They are open for lunch from 11am-2pm, dinner from 5pm-10:30pm.
Our favorites on the menu are:
(the appetizers can be shared by 4 people)
* Kale salad with Parmesan Dressing, Croutons and Mint
* Tuna Tartare, Avocado, Radish Soy Ginger Sauce
* Black Truffle Fontina Pizza
* Local Salumi and Cheese
* Crispy Sushi with Hamachi
For dinner, we enjoyed:
* Roasted Hake
* Bacon Guyere Grass Fed Burger
* Parmesan Crusted Organic Chicken
* Grilled Beef Tenderloin
* Grilled Lamb Chops
For dessert (my favorite part of the meal):
* Warm Peach Cobbler with Blueberry Creme Fraiche Ice Cream
* Banana Cream Pie
* Chocolate Cake
The cocktails are delicious as well. My personal favorite is the Passion Chili Whiskey. Cocktails range from $12-15. The Inn serves Draught Beer from Alsace FR, Maine, Brooklyn and Nantucket MA. The bar also serves Bottled Beer, from Elmsford, NY, Cooperstown NY, Newport OR, Boston, MA, Japan and a non alcoholic beer from Germany. And of course, they do have an impressive wine selection either by the glass or by the bottle.
There are so many choices and you cannot go wrong.
The Inn is a wonderful addition to the Town of Pound Ridge, NY.
