The word is
Many accolades for the warm and cozy atmosphere, the dining room of stone walls, fireplace, and wood beams, that "feel as though you've gone back in time," in addition to the extremely well prepared and delicious food served my a friendly staff. Unfortunately, the restaurant can get loud when full, but you can ask for a corner table. Some people are disappointed, and say "it's too expensive".
A Bit of History about Peter Pratt's Inn
"Peter Pratt's Inn, an old converted colonial home with 200 year old sugar maple trees lining the front of the property, is located in the oldest section of Yorktown and is situated at the battle site of the demise of General George Washington's Northern Continental Command Post to the British Tories in 1781. Across the street is one of the oldest structures in Westchester, the Davenport House, which served as General Washington's command post during the Revolutionary War.
"The restaurant area was originally the foundation of a barn built in 1780. The dining room remains authentic in its colonial design and construction. Overhead, thick, petrified chestnut beams rest on granite boulders, the foundation for 75% of the building.
. . . forward to 2002. " Janet Pratt retired and Craig Purdy became Jonathan Pratt's partner at the restaurant. The very first job that Craig held in a restaurant was as a dishwasher at Peter Pratt's 31 years ago. This sparked Craig's interest in food, wine, restaurants and travel. Craig continued in the field, earning a Master's Degree in Hotel Management from Cornell, and holding varied management positions in New York, Hong Kong, Germany and Kuwait. This completes the circle for Craig to come back to his first restaurant job as a proprietor."
