Staying at Crystal Springs Resort this wknd... Restaurant Recommendations?

We are looking for great food, nice atmosphere... I know Restaurant Latour is right in the Resort, but it is booked solid. Anything else within a 20 min radius you would recommend?

Thanks so much!

  1. Andres in Newton is excellent. It is under 20 minutes. Great atmosphere and food.

    I've never been to the places below but I know people that have and they speak highly of both.


    The Mowhawk House

    1. Bummer to miss out on Latour.....but you might still arrange for a cellar tour mid-afternoon as their wine collection is a Huge reason to stay at the resort. Consider begging as necessary.

      A few other destinations include the Inn at Millrace Pond as well as the Sunday Brunch at Perona Farms; both a bit of a ride but some gorgeous scenery enroute and destination dining at both venues.

        Perona Farms Sunday brunch is that still around! I went there many times many moons ago when I was a young one! Wonderful wonderful place! They have wonderful in house smoked salmon. Lots of wonderful foods, and wonderful memories. I think it will be worth the over an hour trip for me to visit once again, wow thanks for the reminder!

          Hope you made it to Perona (not sure if your trip still happened due to the weather). We got married there 4 years ago, and just went back for our anniversary. I always have the urge to just pull up a chair to the raw bar and go to town. And then move on to the smoked salmon. And those homemade donuts! Good grief.

      2. I would try Iron Forge Inn in Warwick. Also Belvale Creamery, just up the block. Great ice cream and fantastic view.
