Pretty good food in a charming, yet stuffy old restaurant. Both the menu and atmosphere of this gem are stuck in the '50s, and thus this is where to take your grandmother for tea and a light lunch. The smoked salmon appetizer is pretty good, and the prix fixe is well priced. Sadly it's rarely packed, and may be going under.
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.
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.
