As other reviewers mentioned, the Pantry is not well known, as it's in the Verve (Crown Plaza) Hotel. The decor is fairly contemporary, with clean lines, but the constantly running silent loop of food shows - including the French Chef with Julia Child - are a bit distracting.
It took me a while from the time I ordered my drink until I received it. The Violet Thorn is one of their signature drinks, and was excellent. We had the baked oysters, which were fresh and wonderfully prepared. The mussels were excellent as well. We also each ordered salads, and they were fresh, tasty and filling. Mine had orange, pistachio, and some fried goat cheese as garnish.
The Pantry is a refreshing change from all the chain restaurants along route 9. The only drawback is that they had one wait person for the restaurant, and she was gracious but very apologetic for the delays.
