Canal House Station
A little bit about Canal House… Melissa Hamilton and Christopher Hirsheimer are cooks who write about home cooking. In 2007 they founded Canal House, which includes a publishing venture and a culinary, photography, and design studio. Their cookbook Canal House Cooks Every Day received a James Beard Award, and their blog, Canal House Cooks Lunch, is followed by thousands of readers who find inspiration in what they cook up each day.
Canal House Station Café & Restaurant, their latest endeavor, makes the food that fills the pages of their cookbooks come to life for everybody to enjoy!
My husband and I and another couple had an outstanding meal at Canal House Station. We had the Sunday fixed menu. Every aspect of the experience was wonderful. The host who sat us, the waiter who served us and the beautifully restored station house all led up to an excellent meal which utilized fresh seasonal ingredients. The meal, service and ambiance equaled those we've had at some of our other favorite restaurants such as Gotham Bar & Grill and Gramercy Park Tavern in Manhattan and 90 Acres in Peapack. We'll be back. All four of us would highly recommend a visit!
We've enjoyed the Sundy "supper' twice now, and each time the fixed menu included very fresh and local ingredients (chanterelles, local tomatoes, local blueberries). The dining room space is best described as casual, imaginative elegance and the servers are exceptionally friendly and knowledgable. The whole Canal House restaurant experience is just a class act!
The place was outstanding! I know folks who love the books, of which I know nothing. But I do know that the food was delicious and insanely reasonable for what it is.
The food was amazing. So many vegetarian choices - can't thank you enough!!!
Fresh. Thoughtful. Simple. Perfect.
We had the loveliest Sunday afternoon meal! Amazing food and ambiance, that’s perfect for both special occasions and every day. Can’t wait to come back!
Great all around. Going to be a solid success!
