A Bedford "treasure" for many decades, this "class act" dispenses "sublime" French fare in a converted white-clapboard 18th-century farmhouse with "enchanting", "old-school elegant decor"; factor in a "gracious" staff both "unobtrusive" and "vigilant to your needs" and no one seems to mind paying "an arm and a leg" for a "true special-event experience"; P.S. jackets suggested.
We live in Greenwich and we love so many beautiful restaurants out in this area, including elevated places like Polpo, Rebecca's, Le Penguin, etc. This is a pretentious, arrogant establishment and I wouldn't suggest anyone try it unless you enjoy pretentious, arrogant places that resemble your grandmother's faux floral living room.
We celebrated my grandfather's 80th birthday at La Cremaillere at brunch yesterday. It is difficult to get children, grandchildren all together at any one time and we succeeded and La Cremaillere made it a perfect occasion. The setting was beautiful. We had a small private room. The food selection was exquisite and the service impeccable. Everyone was delighted and, of course, I was thrilled.
