The Dabney

We have a thing for restaurants with a warm friendly farmhouse vibe, and The Dabney gets it just right — from the big wood-burning hearth inside to the sunny courtyard outdoors.

What to eat? Of course, the best items on the menu are cooked on that big hearth, especially, although it might not seem obvious, the vegetables. The rustic cooking method is often offset by super-colorful flourishes with flowers and herbs.The brussels sprouts and chicken and dumplings are faves, and the dessert lovers among us won’t stop raving about their chocolate and butterscotch pies.

Pipsqueak tip Get a seat by the open kitchen for warmth and entertainment, or head outside if the kids need room to wiggle.
