About the restaurant
Tavern & Grocery offers modern interpretations of classically inspired dishes served in a modern update of a restored early 1800's boarding house. The building was a grocery from its inception in 1820 all the way until 1973, and was also a tavern, boarding house, and restaurant along the way. Ingredients are sourced locally whenever possible, with much of our produce grown on our own farm during the spring, summer, and fall. We even have our own flock of laying hens and use as many of our own eggs as possible! Saturday and Sunday brunch is a must with both classic brunch dishes as well as creative re-interpretations, and, of course, the perfect bloody mary. Our bar focuses on creative craft and classic cocktails, as well as wine, serving the best examples of many varieties with a large selection of wines offered by the glass. We have a very nice selection of beer, both on tap and in bottle, that even the most discerning will love.

We arrived at the Farmhouse early and enjoyed a bottle of Sparkling wine we had bought at the vineyard on the front porch. We had called earlier to ensure this was Ok. We were greeted by Alex Espinosa with a kind smile and a warm welcome. Alex continued to be a gracious host while we waited for dinner as well as throughout the meal. The atmosphere of the grounds and the building are perfect. The views are stunning. Then here comes the food. Course after course was beautifully prepared and matched with delicious wines from the Vineyard. A perfect night would be how I would describe the experience at the Farmhouse

We hadn’t been to your restaurant in over a year and we’re very pleased with our return visit last night. Each of us got one of the specials, the seafood trio and the serpent turf, and they were excellent. The steak was cooked perfectly and the lobster tails were delicious and sweet. We also got two starters, a wedge salad and the French onion soup, which was delicious next time both of us will get the French onion soup. Overall, it was a excellent meal and we will return.

About the restaurant
Le Yaca began in a tiny, country village(Courchevel)in the French Alps in 1964.Daniele Bourderau & Gerard decided that it would be fun to open a small restaurant. When friends learned of their plans they told the hopeful restaurateurs that they were crazy to think that people would drive 8 kilometers on a winding, icy road for dinner. Daniele and Gerard hesitated for 3 months and then decided: “yaca le faire,” a contraction of the French phrase “ il n’y a qu’a le faire” which basically means “let’s do it.” They called the restaurant Le Yaca as a gag. But the name caught on with customers, who were amused by the pun and contributed to the restaurant’s lore by inventing “yaca-isms ” of their own: yaca y aller (let’s go). Daniele came to the United States & opened Le Yaca in Williamsburg. Daniel Abid bought le Yaca in 2001. Daniel worked and trained in such prestigious places as “Le Pre Catelan” and “Lenotre” in Paris; “L’Amandier” and “Roger Verge; and to top it all off “Alain D
