Locally sourced food is fabulous, not fussy, at this laid-back tavern
At The Copper Grouse in the Kimpton Taconic Hotel, they believe that food can be creative, sophisticated and soul-satisfying without being pretentious. Diners who return again and again to the comfortable tavern would agree. Start with a local craft brew or a cocktail with a literary twist (try the Ancient Mariner), then dine on some locally sourced specialties, like cheddar ale soup, cider-brined chicken, New England baked beans or house-made cannelloni. Maybe you’ll decide to stay after dinner, sit by the fire pit in a comfortable chair and sip some local whiskey. (Or maybe you’ll just have coffee and the maple creme brulee.) The tavern, where service is as warm as the atmosphere, also serves a hearty breakfast and a tasty lunch.
