A Weekend in Litchfield County

27th October 2009

After another VERY long week at work, I went up to Litchfield County with my roommate and a bunch of our friends for our annual “Weekend in the Woods.” It is entirely relaxing – full of book reading, wine drinking, fabulous meals and great friends.



Pastorale – a lovely french bistro in Lakeville. Highly recommend the red beet tarte tatin and artichoke and mozzarella salad. Special entrees were amazing, as was the beef bourguignon.

Serevan – very cute restaurant in Amenia. Interesting combination of traditional American food with Mediterranean and Middle-Eastern influences.

See and Do

Ellsworth Farm – amazing farm in Sharon – great place to pick pumpkins. They have a fabulous corn maze every year – so much fun! They also sell amazing apple cider donuts in their little shop.

Millbrook Vineyards and Winery – there are a lot of Vineyards in Litchfield County, but my friends swear this is the best tasting facility. The Pinot is particularly great this year.

New Preston – adorable town with GREAT shopping! My personal fave is J.Seitz – selling great clothing, accessories and furniture from Mitchell + Gold, Cisco Brothers and John Derian.

Litchfield – beautiful town with great shopping and restaurants. Be warned – it’s busy there on a weekend in the fall – difficult to get a table for lunch or dinner anywhere!
