Renovations are underway for a new farm-to-table restaurant that will be opening in November in the former Cozy Corner building in Amenia.  The new owners are members of the Monte family who have owned and managed the  landmark Gurney’s Inn Resort & Spa in Montauk for  56 years.   The family also ran Monte’s Venetian Room, an Italian restaurant that opened in 1906 on Carroll St. in Brooklyn.  The Millbrook Independent interviewed Dafna Mizrahi, the Culinary Institute of America-trained Executive Chef, manager and partner, last week.

“We are going as rustic and farm-local as possible and will be using the highest quality locally-sourced ingredients we can find,” explained Ms. Mizrahi, “We love the fact that farms are all around this area and will combine family hospitality with farm themes. The décor will be vintage rustic industrial, no table cloths or mats, just  refurbished antique wood tables, planters with fresh herbs, cocktails in Mason jars and a local wall with jams, maple syrup, pickled vegetables and wines from the Hudson Valley for sale.”
