Dilworthtown Inn Restaurant Review

: Since Revolutionary days, this inn has been a welcoming sight in the countryside. Its warren of dining rooms has the brick hearths, Persian carpets, and colonial furnishings expected in such a setting. Proprietors Jim Barnes and Bob Rafetto ensure that formal service enhances the enjoyment of the continental cuisine, as well as the notable 800-plus-bottle wine list. Favored dishes highlight complex flavor pairings, as in pistachio-crusted sea scallops in a strawberry-grape gastrique with baby bok choy. There is an occasional Asian touch, such as the coconut and citrus-marinated lobster spring roll with mango-apricot sauce that's paired with a baby arugula salad with sesame-orange vinaigrette. The $65, four-course tasting menu offers notable value. Desserts such as homemade ice cream, chocolate mousse and strawberry cream cake finish off the evening with a flourish.
