Eat / restaurants / Pip's Brasserie
While I think I’ve gotten a bit better at food photography in the last few years, I’m no expert. Yes, the food is gorgeous at Pip’s, but I’d never eaten on the porch so I thought it best to show off the view. The splashing fountain and garden view are a lovely backdrop on a summer evening. Copper Beech’s latest incarnation is smart, too. While the dining room still suits a special occasion, the menu throughout the Inn is now Pip’s delightful take on Brasserie. You can choose a perfect hamburger, opt for the seasonal menu (I did: a composed salad of summer fruits and vegetables in nasturtium broth and risotto with cockles and a lobster claw), or go for classic steak frites (fried in duck fat for insane flavor), whether dining on the porch, in the bar or the fancy schmancy dining room. If you’ve yet to try Chef Tyler Anderson’s (recent winner of “Chopped” on the Food Network) take on modern American and classic French food, go.
