The Peacock Inn Restaurant Restaurant Review

: At first sight, The Peacock Inn looks as if George Washington may have slept there, and indeed, he could have since the building has graced Princeton’s landscape since 1775. But modern owners live in modern times and the restaurant décor they chose is elegant and minimalist, and in spite of its cool lines, exceedingly warm and inviting. The executive chef is Manuel Perez, whose résumé includes stints at Le Bernardin and The Water Club in New York City, and then at the Garden State’s Restaurant Nicholas in Red Bank. His food is memorable for its honest and direct flavors derived from careful preparation, skilled technique, imagination and prime ingredients. The menu is highly seasonal and changes frequently, but consider such dishes as pan-seared scallops, served with apple and fennel purée; spicy mojo-braised suckling pig accompanied by gnocchi-size cuts of crisp yucca on the plate with papaya-cilantro salad and guava gastrique; or tender filet mignon napped with bordelaise sauce paired with a moist and luscious mushroom bread pudding and cipollini purée. The wine list is carefully composed to complement the food, and service is professional.

We stopped here just to have a drink. the bar area is really nice. We stayed for dinner and just loved it. The menu is very seasonal and carefully thought out. The service was professional and polished. so nice to find such a nice place in such a nice place. This place shot right to the top of my list of favorite places to dine.
