The Locust Tree restaurant (http://www.locusttree.com) announces the grand opening of its outdoor garden pavilion. Although many celebrations have been held in the main house, the renovation of the outdoor garden pavilion finally allows larger groups to gather in a single grand room, evocative of Victorian era European winter gardens. The Locust Tree restaurant, nestled in the foothills of the Shawanagunk mountain range, exudes European charm. Situated within an original landmark Huguenot house, the main building comprises three dining rooms. The front tavern, built in 1759, sports original locust wood beams, while the back two dining rooms date from the Victorian era, circa 1840, and showcase original wood carved doors and stairs.
The Locust Tree restaurant, located in New Paltz, New York, in the scenic Hudson Valley, has been the site of choice for many intimate festivities. Operated by husband and wife team Robert Khimeche, a French ASA accredited sommelier, and Cordon Bleu trained Chef Barbara Bogart, originally from the Finger Lakes region of New York, the ambience and award winning food exemplify the best of a French country Auberge. The winter garden pavilion was designed by Manhattan based decorative artist Jean-Marc Solak, a French native from Brittany. Jean-Marc, a rising star in the decorative arts scene, envisioned for the winter garden pavilion a belle époque impression with modern organic sensibility. "I wanted to achieve a charming multi-purpose sale de fete reminiscent of the Cotes d'Azur," states Jean-Marc Solak, "like a quick trip to Europe without having to fly anywhere."
The completion of the winter garden pavilion finally allows large groups of up to 250 to enjoy the splendor of the Hudson Valley and dine from a seasonally inspired menu featuring organic, locally grown products among stylish surroundings. The winter garden pavilion provides a unique setting for events of all sizes.
