Located in a beautifully restored historical building, in the small town of Leonardsville it has been lovingly managed by the same family for nearly 44 years.

Opening weekend at The Horned Dorset - something we look forward to every year! Great options for specialty cocktails (I highly recommend The Aviation.) The sea scallops were delicious as was the beef medallions. And the best was saved for last - the souffle. It was a perfect birthday dinner.

About the restaurant
After taking the Parisian dining scene by storm, acclaimed chef Daniel Rose brings home the James Beard "Best New Restaurant" award for his very first stateside restaurant. Located in SoHo, the space is a gracious modern nod to fine European gastronomy, with crisp linens, fliberking candles, and whitewashed brick. Updating classical French cuisine with charm and verve, Rose shrinks the intercontinental divide separating the City of Light and the Big Apple, proving that the true essence of fine French dining can thrive in any time zone.

About the restaurant
Michelin Bib Gourmand 4 years in a row. Vinum is the result of the love for Italian food and wine! Executive Chef and restaurateur Massimo Felici’s passion for food started as a young boy growing up in New York. Now he proudly introduces Vinum; the concept offer's a fun menu with small dishes, appetizers and an extensive wine list by the glass program.

Felici felt Staten Island was missing a place where guests could share small dishes and appetizers as their whole meal. He's confident that Vinum will satisfy this need.

Food was delicious. We ordered the lamb meatballs, and the tripe for appetizers. Service was good, but I gave 3 stars because instead of the lamb meatballs, we got the Italian meatballs. We ate they and they were good. We both had pasta dishes, and the homemade pasta was delicious. Overall, a very nice experience.

About the restaurant
We want Sophie's to be a place where one could have a good, hearty meal (comfort food), simple and unpretentious, at a fair price. Our goal is to produce an atmosphere where people can come for lunch, a full dinner, a late snack, a glass of wine or a big cup of coffee and feel comfortable and at home. Our menu is diverse enough for everyone, yet simple enough so the average person will not get overwhelmed with numerous menu choices and complications. Our basic premise is to provide quality food and good service at a fair price in an unpretentious atmosphere. The décor is modeled after classic French Bistros. French country antiques, large open shuttered windows, dark woods, soft pastel colors and walls covered with family pictures make Sophie's an intimate cozy environment

This allows you to continue to live well while enjoying your food in comfort. We love the idea of indulging in your well being. To that end, our menu pushes beyond vegetables into beef and chicken but with that same focus on healthful, whole foods. Gather around, get comfortable and enjoy on our heated patio.

Great heath-honouring food. We loved this find! Normally, we choose to eat at vegan or vegetarian restaurants - not because we don't eat animal products, but because those are the places that generally focus on health. The Little Beet gave us access to food that is prepared in a health-conscious way, while also being able to order dishes with meat. We enjoyed our meal very much.
