New Yorkers are known for their love of great food, having dogs bigger than their Manhattan apartment and for always seeking style, atmosphere and service everywhere they go. When it comes to combining all of it in one perfect destination WE, Relais & Chateau Hotel Fauchere (named after Louis Fauchere, Master Chef at Delmonico’s NY from the late 1840’s to 1867) in Milford Pennsylvania has it all.
Only 75 miles away from NYC and nestled among lakes and mountains on the Deleware River, the 16-room historic Hotel — founded in 1852 — is a luxurious and gourmet WE retreat for guests and their four legged friends who will be spoiled with homemade treats and in-room toys.
When it comes to getting spoiled aside from the great in room comfort and amenities, the recently appointed Executive Chef, Christopher Bates, keeps the culinary legacy of the place well alive. Whether you are in the mood for a casual, yet sophisticated bistro-style experience at the Hotel’s Bar Louis, or if you prefer a fine dining experience sitting amongst a collection of 1920’s vintage menus from the European renowned restaurant at the Delmonico Room, Hotel Fauchere offers a broad range of food options.
Bates, who has received many honors and recognitions( including the Confrerie de la Chaine de Rotisseurs/l’Academie Brillat-Savarin Award in 2001), and was recognized in the prestigious ASA Best Sommelier in America’s 2009 competition, focuses on superb local products and on Hotel Fauchere’s very own organic garden. The result is a brilliant combination of a traditional menu with a modern take, always using the best of local organic produce, artisan cheese and specialty meats.
Also, there is no better place to look forward to morning breakfast than Hotel Fauchere.
Served in the elegant veranda filled with natural light, Hotel Fauchere welcomes its guests to a sublime gourmet breakfast. Chocolate croissants and cinnamon rolls would get any of the best French bakery red with envy and the homemade vanilla yogurt and granola are simply perfection.
For your midday craving, Hotel Fauchere also offers a patisserie next door featuring all their delicious baked goods (and a spa if more pampering is needed).
