In Old Lyme’s historic district along the Lieutenant River sits The Chestnut Grille at The Bee and Thistle Inn & Spa. Built in 1756 as the home of Judge William Noyes and his family, it’s been an inn since the 1930s. Today this Colonial masterpiece is a gracious sanctuary designed to feed you well, relax your mind and body, and offer a bit of fun, too.
Feeding yourself well here might start with chef Kristofer Rowe’s innovative grilled Caesar salad (heads of Romaine lettuce sliced lengthwise and grilled); tiny, whole quail, drizzled with honey and served with a napoleon of butternut squash; or seared scallops and grilled shrimp with sweet potatoes and candied turnips. To relax the mind and body, get thee to the on-site spa for a restorative facial or massage.
And the fun? Join other guests for pétanque (French lawn bowling) on the river­bank.
