Located in a restored 19th century house (the Dodd-Hinsdale house), Second Empire elegantly combines history, ambiance and gourmet food for an unforgettable dining experience.

Here's an excerpt from David Crabtree's favorite restaurants post: Second Empire is one of my favorites....not only here...but anywhere! Kim Reynolds' magnificent Tavern is warm...excellent dining...great wine list...friendly atmosphere. Great bar minus the hassles.

Been in several great restaurants. I gauge these places by comparing them to Harold's in Stormville NY. Harold would call at least 2-3 times and have a personal conversation with you, finding your likes and dislikes and when you finally ate there it was personal. You felt at home, and were treated like never before. Everything about you and the food were special.
