Michel and Patricia Jean, owners of Stissing House, bring decades of noted culinary experience, including Provence in New York City, to their restaurant in the Hudson River Valley.<br />The Jeans came to Dutchess County, NY where they discovered The Stissing House, an historic 1782 tavern, after an almost 20-year run at their New York City restaurant Provence. One of America’s oldest and longest-operating restaurants, The Stissing House features a wood-burning oven and grill sizzling with Michel’s Provençal-inspired cuisine. With a more sophisticated décor but period details intact, The Stissing House has become a landmark culinary destination. The food: simple, delicious, robust and compelling Provençal cuisine. In every meal: seasonal, locally-sourced, organic grass-fed beef, poultry and vegetables.The vintage tavern room features a special cocktail menu drawing locals and visitors alike to eat, drink and socialize at the bar or the tables. Available for private parties as well.

"We have been going to Stissing House for many years and we're never disappointed. It's a great combination of locals and weekenders with lots of buzz among the diners. The food whether you go simple with the pizzas or the specials is outstanding. We always have trouble choosing our order. The appetizers are unusual and combine lots of local ingredients .
We encourage you to go ... but we don't want to be crowded out;)

Dine at the Fourth Estate restaurant at the National Press Club and you'll enjoy great food in a setting rich with history. It is the perfect place for a business lunch, interview or dinner with friends and colleagues. Executive Chef Susan Delbert offers up New American cuisine in a place where famous and newsworthy persons aren't just autographed pictures on the wall, they are probably speaking in the next room! While the venue is historic, the food is rooted in the here and now. Chef Delbert works with organic and small farmers in the Mid-Atlantic region, giving her access to the freshest, most flavorful meats and produce.

"Atmosphere was friendly and felt like a lot of events had happened here. The staff was incredibly solicitous. Didn't find the food that good, but my dining partners really enjoyed theirs."

"We joined a number of other families that chose the capital grille for their Thanksgiving meal. The staff couldn't have been more gracious. There was a good choice of wines and a dinner almost like Mom would make. Only complaint ... No pumpkin pie.
But there were some interesting veggie choices for those hard to please relatives."
