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.
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!
