Kings' Carriage House plays up its rustic charm and hunting-lodge feel with yellow-painted original brick walls, covered with enamel plates and prints of New England fox hunts, plus several buck heads. The tiny dining room seats fewer than 16 polo players and investment bankers, with jazzed-up wives or dates on their arms. Dinner is prix fixe only, with supplemental charges for certain dishes. Nothing strays too far from traditional American food, but the emphasis is decidedly New England regional, with ingredients like goat cheese, quail, lamb, and duck. Italian or French accents make appearances. Eating here is, when you order right, a good marriage of meat and sweet. The downside: The sweet fruit- or wine-based sauces in most dishes sometimes obscure the flavor of the meat. There are exceptions, like the rack of lamb served in its own jus. Desserts include rich concoctions like a dark Belgian chocolate ganache torte.


Afternoon tea is served Tue. through Sun. from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.; reservations are strongly recommended. Lunch is a two-course prix-fixe menu.
