Restaurant Review: The Grange in Warwick, True Farm-to-Table

The Grange in Warwick, N.Y., which is just over the New Jersey border, is truly a farm-to-table restaurant.

It is not just because it uses produce from farms in the magically fertile Black Dirt region of southern New York State, or because Jim Haurey, the owner and head “cook” (he dislikes the title “chef” when describing himself) spends Tuesdays and Wednesdays working on an organic farm (run by his girlfriend, Dominique Herman), or even because 80 percent of the restaurant’s ingredients are sourced locally. It is because Mr. Haurey seems to be on a mission that goes way beyond owning a profitable business.

EXCELLENT
THE SPACE: Built in 1903, the brick building has a charm enhanced by a stream rushing alongside it. At night the wood and brick interior seems to emanate its own warm glow. If you are lucky, you may get a seat on the front porch. Seating for 19.
THE CROWD: A mix, including farmers grabbing a locally grown favorite, visitors stopping by after shopping at nearby antique & specialty stores, couples on dates and professionals dining on the clock.
THE BAR: A small selection of mostly local alcoholic beverages; the most notable we sampled were Warwick Valley Winery sangria, which was on tap, and Pennings Farm Cidery hard ciders. The wine selection compliments the blackboard menu, ask your server for a suggested pairing.
THE BILL: Appetizers range from $7 to $11; entrees, $11 to $38. Desserts, $7.50.
WHAT WE LIKED: Tempura garlic scapes, miso and egg drop soup, Brittney’s pâté, capellini with dandelion greens and Parmigiano-Reggiano, roast pork with basmati rice, hanger steak, onion rings and flourless chocolate cake.
IF YOU GO: Open Monday noon to 8pm; Thursday 4:30pm to 8 pm; Fridays and Saturdays noon until 8pm; Sundays, noon until 6pm. On-street parking. With just a few tables, reservations are a good idea and suggested on weekend nights.
RATINGS: Excellent, Very Good, Good, Fair, Poor

Local ingredients from the Black Dirt region’s farms get a global spin at this cozy New Milford multitasker, a casual restaurant for seasonal sandwiches, soups, cheese boards, wild seafood and more, plus a market offering goods from truffle oils to bratwurst to housemade salad dressings. The historic, former post office space features a rustic-chic interior with exposed brick, chalkboard menus and white wainscoted walls.

The area lacks much in the way of fine dining, but The Grange is a terrific exception. With true farm-to-table as its theme, the meals are infused with freshness and originality.

One never knows what will be in the dinner menu in this small, rustic, intimate dining room, since the chef determines what to make depending on what is locally available. On the night we were there, I had a sausage topped fresh salad, with a terrific steak for dinner (with fresh veggies, of course). My wife enjoyed her vegitarian eggrolls, followed by a terrific duck. A shared flourless chocolate cakes was scrumptious.

The wine list is also locally sourced, which can be disappointing. But try to excellent hard cider!

It’s worth a trip to this spot, but make sure you have a reservation – and note that they have several days closed weekly, and early closings from time to time.

This is a small excellent farm-to-table restaurant with a menu that varies as ingredients become available. Seats around thirty people and his relatively limited hours so reservations are probably a good idea. We have visited many times and have always been pleased.
