Remembering the Past…Thinking about the Future
Built as a barn in 1790 and named after local farmer John Kittle, how appropriate it is that the Kittle Barn and Carriage House began it’s existence with a farm-to-table connection, a philosophy and tradition that has continued throughout the years. Crabtree’s Kittle House established itself as the farm-to-table pioneer in Westchester County and has maintained it’s excellent reputation as an outlet for the finest sustainable, naturally raised and grown products from small, artisanal farmers located in the Hudson Valley and beyond.
The same philosophy of utilizing natural, sustainable, small production ingredients in the Kittle House kitchen continues in the legendary Kittle House wine cellar, home to nearly 60,000 bottles and 5000 selections. The greatest wineries from around the world are well represented with a specific emphasis placed on supporting those winemakers who grow their grapes and make their wines as naturally as possible. The wine cellar is full of these unique wines produced by passionate, talented and thoughtful men and women who practice methods of natural, organic and sustainable farming. These are not wines made by a recipe but rather wines of terroir, of the earth, of great complexity and nuance, special qualities that can only come from a special place – wines that express the vineyard through the grapes that grow there.
Now celebrating it’s 30th anniversary, Crabtree’s Kittle House Restaurant and Inn continues to set the bar for fine dining and culinary excellence in Westchester County. Staying current by introducing modern culinary trends while remaining true to the refined standards of classic American cuisine and professional service has been the hallmark of this nationally recognized gastronomic destination throughout it’s illustrious hospitality history.
Whether a Chef’s Tasting Menu for two in the dining room or a burger and a beer in the Tap Room; a celebration for 16 at The Wine Cellar Table; a private event for 40 guests in The Ivy Hill Room; or a wedding ceremony and reception for 200 guests in the Atrium Garden Room, the quality of the food and service at Crabtree’s Kittle House represents the finest in sophisticated country dining and warm, gracious hospitality.
