Farm To Table

Upscale Casual

Part of Restaurants by Jean-Georges

Chef Jean‑Georges introduces a casually elegant restaurant ensconced in the picturesque town of Pound Ridge, New York. Here, Jean‑Georges cultivates a truly seasonal, farm-to-table cuisine, with ingredients sourced from the Hudson Valley and New England, whenever possible. Constructed in 1833 as a residence and serving later as an inn, the building has been painstakingly renovated to preserve as many of the original materials as possible, including four working fireplaces. Thomas Juul-Hansen designed the restaurant’s interior with a modern yet rustic sensibility; zinc and marble accent stone and reclaimed wood. The restaurant’s lighting, artfully conceived by Hervé Descottes, employs paper shades and Edison fixtures to create warmth throughout.

The down-to-earth food and contemporary country feel makes the Inn at Pound Ridge a convivial, family friendly restaurant frequented by neighbors and tourists alike. Stop in for a glass of wine and a pizza, or come out for a special occasion dinner. With two dining rooms, two full bars, and a candle only illuminated wine cellar for private dining, we are equipped to accommodate events of all sizes, from intimate dinner parties to full-scale weddings. Jean‑Georges welcomes you, to the Inn at Pound Ridge and looks forward to providing you with a thoroughly enjoyable culinary experience.
