Guests can dine in the casual Tap Room which has a fireplace and a piano for Saturday night entertainment or Muse by Jonathan Cartwright, a more formal setting. The Tap Room offers small bites, oysters, salads, sandwiches, lobster rolls, burgers, pizza, steaks and more. Muse, was created by acclaimed Grand Chef Relais & Châteaux Jonathan Cartwright. Cartwright is the award winning chef at The White Barn Inn in Kennebunkport, Maine. When Grace Hotels purchased the White Barn, The Vanderbilt in Newport and The Mayflower, Cartwright created The Muse brand for these hotels.
The White Barn is a Forbes Five Star and AAA Diamond restaurant and one of the best dining experiences we have had.
Muse is an elegant room with a soft gray palette, accented colorful artwork and fresh flowers. The restaurant has fantastic views over the lawn to the Shakespearean garden maze and in warmer weather guests can dine al fresco on the terrace. Muse showcases Cartwright’s considerable talents with items like seared venison, smoked potato puree, roasted shallots, butternut squash and red wine veal reduction.
