The Old Inn on the Green

Foodies have followed chef Peter Platt from his post at Wheatleigh to this rustic spot, where the focus is on food, not formality. Superior American fare—braised lamb shank with spring vegetables and pan-roasted duck with wild rice—is served in the intimate dining rooms of this inn, which glows with candlelight.
