Charlotte’s Restaurant and Catering - Millbrook, New York

Charlotte’s owners, Mikael and Alicia Moller, have found their way to Millbrook via Sweden and NYC and they’ve brought their expertise with them. In the wintertime, enjoy a simmering glogg in front of the fireplace in either the bar area or the wall-length muraled main dining room. In the summertime, take a seat in Alicia’s garden and watch chef Mikael grill your dinner over an open fire. The fish (rainbow trout, Atlantic salmon) is so fresh you can almost smell the sea, and the kitchen receives deliveries of local Dutchess County produce and cheeses fresh each morning. (Alicia’s gardens produce the restaurant’s tomatoes, lemon thyme, and mint). They cure their own gravlax, sun-dry their own tomatoes, and freeze their own ice cream. The piece de resistance of the Fall menu is the osso buco ($27), normally a veal shank, but at Charlotte’s it’s a pork shank braised in wine stock with farm fresh vegetables. The visual presentation rivals the photos in any $50 coffee table book. For the budget conscious, there’s a black Angus cheddar burger with “Ajax fries,” which are the traditional fries tossed in truffle oil.
