The Tewksbury Inn Restaurant Review: The Tewksbury Inn, located in the heart of New Jersey’s horse country, has been welcoming guests for a century or two, originally as a stagecoach stop, but now as an enchanting country inn. While the inn’s manners come from another era, the food does not. Chef Chris Quintile’s menu offers modern dishes prepared with a clear-eyed sensibility for international flavors. There are temptations such as pan-roasted Canadian turbot served with mussels in a white wine broth and accompanied by sautéed spinach and herb salad; and pineapple marinated hanger steak with seared peppered pineapple, whipped potatoes and grilled asparagus. An especially interesting combination is the house-smoked Asian barbecued baby-back ribs with frizzled sweet potatoes and coleslaw. A carefully selected wine list does justice to the food. Dine on Monday evenings and order any bottle on the list at a 50 percent discount. Service is informal and friendly.
