Thomas Henkelmann Restaurant Review

: The fruit of Thomas and Theresa Henkelmann's labor, this charming, renovated eighteenth-century manse boasts 18 luxurious suites and rooms in three separate buildings. The dining room is as rustic as it is opulent. From the setting to the cuisine, not one minute detail goes overlooked. Visit the intimate bar-lounge for a cocktail before dinner. The dining room, with its half-timbered ceilings and fireplace, is divided into cozy booths and private rooms, all situated around the main tables. Service is invariably attentive, yet unobtrusive. And as for the cuisine --- Henkelmann’s training under some of Europe's preeminent chefs (Paul Haeberlin, Eckart Witzigmann, etc.) ensures this German-born chef can deliver. His classic French cuisine is flawless. Appetizers feature crisp sautéed sweetbreads with French-style peas and Perigord black truffle, and seared Hudson Valley duck foie gras with rhubarbe ragoût and micro greens. Follow with the delicate potato-encrusted halibut filet on a bed of julienne vegetables and Diable sauce, or poached red snapper stuffed with jumbo lump crab meat. Henkelmann himself coordinates the comprehensive wine list dominated by fine French vintages. If all this somehow doesn’t impress, the desserts, such as warm Valrhona chocolate soufflé cake with pistachio ice cream, certainly will. And if you happen to stay the night, one taste of the croissants the next morning will make you a believer all over again.
