Ryland Inn to Reopen

ambrose Aug 23, 2011 01:39 PM

According to Rosie Saferstein in her NJ Monthly blog, the Landmark Hospitality Group will reopen the Ryland Inn in Readington Township, Hunterdon County. Details are given here:


A restaurant is only one part of this very ambitious project, which will clearly take years to compete. I hope Landmark Hospitality has very deep pockets.

    Interesting article in NJ Monthly though it's more about the new owners than about the site:

      Several web sites have reported that Anthony Bucco, formerly of Stage Left in New Brunswick and Uproot in Warren, will be the new executive chef at the Ryland Inn. And it looks like a summer opening will happen.

          I got a good laugh when I read the Star-Ledger article. I guess "made a splash" at Uproot is a new way of saying being fired.

        "Reopen" sounds like a misnomer to me. What I read said it's to be an event space, particularly for weddings. And it won't begin to be the quality it was when Craig Shelton was running it.

        Unless you love Liberty House?

          Liberty House has a great view. Food and service are not worth the prices they charge. Just go to Liberty State Park for the view and bring a picnic lunch.

            Sounds like the name is the same, that is all. Used to love that place 10-15 years ago. what a wine list.

              Probably will be a glorified catering hall. there is more money charging $200 for a $50 meal at a wedding, than running a fine dining restaurant.

            I also heard this today from a co-worker.
