Whether you’re planning the perfect proposal keeping the home fire’s burning or rekindling a romance, The Bernards Inn restaurant and boutique hotel is the ultimate East Coast destination for lovers this Valentine’s Day–and all winter long.
Established in 1907, The Bernards Inn (27 Mine Brook Rd, Bernardsville, NJ 07924) is located in the heart of downtown Bernardsville, New Jersey and offers fine dining, wedding and banquet services, conference rooms, as well as 20 well-appointed guestrooms. A Somerset Hills landmark, The Inn welcomes guests with the style and elegance of a small European luxury hotel, while preserving the charm of a historic American country inn.
The restaurant has garnered the hospitality industry’s top awards, including the AAA Four Diamond Award for both dining and accommodations for 18 consecutive years; Forbes Travel Guide Recommended status and Wine Spectator’s “Best of Award of Excellence” for 17 consecutive years. Under the ownership of Hampshire Destination Properties, the property recently marked its 100 year anniversary with a multimillion dollar renovation and redesign.
Romance flutters through the Inn all weekend long beginning on Friday and Saturday evenings, February 12 – 13, with delectable dishes for two, prepared by Chef Corey Heyer, such as Chateaubriand, Stuffed Lobster and Rack of Lamb, in addition to the restaurant’s new seasonal winter menu.
On Valentine’s Day, Sunday February 14, celebrate with a savory Sunday Brunch from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m., or indulge in a spectacular, Three-Course Prix Fixe Dinner from 4 p.m. – 10 p.m. that includes the Inn’s romantic entrees for two, complimentary flowers and decadent chocolates, all amid the gracious surroundings of the redesigned, century-old Inn. Dinner is $118 per guest; tax and gratuities are additional. Reservations are required and can be made by calling 908-766-0002.
Aphrodisiac dishes and drinks like oysters on the half shell and a Pomegranate Martini—the fruit of fertility—will be offered, along with a wine and champagne list of 1,400 selections.
