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.

You felt at home, and were treated like never before. Everything about you and the food were special.
