My wife and I stayed there and ate dinner in their restaurant about five years ago. It was good, but seemed on its way out. I thought I heard a year ago, or so, that a new Executive Chef has revamped the menu. Can anyone confirm or deny? Any other suggestions for this coming weekend? Thanks.

    The main dining room still has a formal menu featuring local ingredients. Actually I think the best bet is their Brasserie Pip, a separate more casual room overlooking the garden. It has many small plates including a daily charcuterie selection in addition to a set of entrees ranging from a "royale" burger through trout almandine, seared scallops and steak frites. I also liked the macaroni gratin and the chocolate mousse cake. You can check out both menus at

        Saw on Executive Chef Tyler Anderson's Facebook page that he is going to be on the next season of Top Chef. He also won on an episode of Chopped pretty recently. Hopefully this will keep the Copper Beech Inn "courant"!!
