The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Scout Your Country Home in Bedford


2. Where to Eat

The dining rooms at La Crémaillère (left) and the Farmhouse at Bedford Post (right).  

There are two restaurants on the Bedford Post property. Eat a casual lunch or brunch at the Barn, a light-filled room wrapped in raw barn beams and eggshell wainscoting. The Farmhouse offers more formal dining (polished wood floors and Frette linens) and food sourced from local farms.

Wear a jacket after 6 p.m. to La Crémaillère, a 1750 farmhouse decorated like a French country house with exposed brick walls, heavy draperies, and oversize floral arrangements. The menu channels Julia Child.

Pack your own lunch at the Bedford Gourmet (Arcade Building Route 22, Bedford Village, 914-234-9409) by picking out salads, cheeses, pastries, and pâtés, or getting a house-made sandwich made of everything from curried chicken salad to French ham and cheese.
