Last weekend, after apple picking we grabbed a late lunch at one of our favorite restaurants - The Grange in Warwick, New York. We discovered this quaint farm-to-table eatery last year after another orchard excursion and were hooked from the first bite. Head chef and owner Jim Haurey focuses on "community, sustainable options, and organic products" and changes the menu daily to incorporate the in-season produce from the local farms. Each dish from start to finish is simply to die for and jam-packed with passion, love and the most incredible ingredients.
To start, we had the leek soup with curry croutons and the caesar salad. Both were incredible, and I'm not exaggerating when I say that I will crave that soup every day this fall and winter, and it even has me contemplating a move to Warwick. It was THAT good! It was heart-warming, smooth, hearty and everything else in between that you always want in a soup but very seldom find. Meanwhile, the salad was hands down the best caesar salad I have ever had. The lettuce was the perfect amount of crisp and crunch and the dressing wasn't overpowering, just perfect. Yummmmm.
For our main course we had the fish and chips with garlic potatoes, and the creamy pasta with leafy greens. Both dishes were incredible but I have to say that the pasta was my favorite. It was the perfect balance of pasta and sauce while adequately satisfying my cheese tooth which is no easy feat!
Just thinking about the food is making my mouth water so please, if you ever find yourself in Warwick, you have to stop by The Grange for the meal of a lifetime. Just be sure to make a reservation first. The dining room is small and cozy, and they book up fast!
Until next time, happy eating!
