Harney Tea Bar - Millerton, New York

Rural Intelligence FoodIf you know any Ladies Who Lunch, send them to the Harney Tea Bar, where they will sit side by side with local artists and shopkeepers.  There is something genteel but not-at-all fussy about the ambiance and food here, which ranges from fish tacos with chipotle creme fraiche ($11) to a duo or trio of grass-fed beef “sliders” (photo) served with dijon aioli, caramelized onions and celeriac remoulade ($10/$11). The European-style sandwiches and salads are named after members of the far-flung Harney clan and reflect their personalities: The Brigitte ($10) is simply a baguette with prosciutto or ham and French butter; the Mimi ($8), which can be made as a panini, has tomato, mozzarella pesto, and oil & vinegar; the Elyse salad ($14) is a combination roasted red pepper, artichoke hearts, Pecorino Romano, oil and Balsamic vinegar. Chef Lee Morton makes sure every plate (many of which are made by local potter Dana Brandwein) looks too-good-to-eat, while Alex Harney bustles around the dining room and outside tables, making sure everyone feels well cared for. Naturally, there’s an extensive assortment of the family’s famous teas and to accompany them there’s Baby Finn’s Organic Carrot And Pinneapple Cake($6).
