New Restaurants The Grazing Room » Henniker
The new owners of the Colby Hill Inn have taken the dining room (now called The Grazing Room) up several notches. They found the property after a wide search for a charming New England inn. Chef/owner Bruce Barnes comes with an incredible culinary background via his own restaurants in New York City (Universal Grill and Harvest) and multi-cultural experience in Washington, DC, where he helped develop the menu at Mitsitam Cafe in the National Museum of the American Indian. Most recently, he was senior executive chef at the World Bank. Barnes is serious about keeping it local, using nearby sources for everything from eggs and cheeses to poultry. Dishes are exquisitely plated for both the eye and taste buds, and the seasonally-inspired menu changes weekly. Get cooking tips from this seasoned chef at the inn’s monthly cooking classes, and don’t miss local-ingredient-filled mixed drinks and the special Sunday supper menu.
