Red Devon

Friday night the meal was so fresh you may have thought you were eating right out of the garden for a moment. Five of us finally made it to the Red Devon in Bangall-the reformed Stage Stop restaurant. After a complete renovation the interior set the mood-with a handsome bar, autumn decorations and modern countryesque feel surrounding us. Before dinner we peaked in the market featuring anything you can think of from the surrounding area. They also have a delicious looking breakfast and lunch menu available daily. We've heard the omelette's are phenomenal!

All of us started out with organic mixed greens from Sky Farms in Millerton. A lemon or hazelnut vinaigrette was offered and enjoyed by all. One diner selected the artisan cheese plate featuring an array of aged cheeses with a delightful cranberry chutney and their own baguette thinly sliced. Following our first course we enjoyed the mushroom and leak ravioli, pork belly and halibut. Everyone could not stop talking about the menagerie of flavors they discovered in every bite. The waitress came back to empty plates-we laughed when she asked how everything was!

For dessert a few of us savored the chocolate mound and pear tart-just as phenomenal as dinner. Throughout the evening our server was attentive offering plenty of their artisanal breads and refilling water glasses. At this time they do not have their liquor license, but it is expected very shortly. A bar menu has also been established and is available to order from currently.

A definite "return to" on our dining list. A must eat for locavores and foodies of the like. Did I mention everything is local and sustainable? A feel good meal for you and the earth.
