The Schoolhouse at Cannondale Restaurant Review

: Formerly the site of a schoolhouse before the Civil War, this structure, now home to a New American restaurant, has been restored to its original condition with hardwood floors and wooden chairs that recall its previous life. The beige and black houndstooth-pattern banquette seating and other rustic touches in the spacious room provide an elegant dining scene. Emphasizing locally grown ingredients, the dinner menu features such appetizers as shaved pork shoulder with puntarelle, apples, roasted apple purée and cipollini onions. Entrées reflect the same philosophy, as in the duck with sunchoke foie gras purée with maitake mushrooms and kale. The wine list features old-world and new-world selections that pair well with the creative fare.
