    When you come to the White Barn Inn, so much of the experience centers around the food. Chef Jonathan Cartwright has created a truly innovative, unique dining experience. He doesn’t play around. In White Barn’s 40th year, he offers guests a tasting menu or a prix-fixe menu that takes you through four stages of eating. As we arrived for dinner our first night, we knew we were in for a unique experience.

    The restaurant is an incredibly romantic, cozy-yet-grand barn space. With a piano player serenading over drinks and dinner, it can only be described as an utterly delightful experience. Seemingly a two-story spot, the second floor is purely what we like to think of as “curated storage.” Upstairs looks like someone’s attic; furniture, trinkets, and art give off the illusion that they’ve been “stowed away.” Antiques are stacked on top of each other, and it’s hard not to fix your gaze on all the beautiful things that sit above you.
