You could easily be touring Historic Cold Spring Village in Cape May and leave without realizing the fine food you missed. The restaurant, recently remodeled and taken over by Tony Clark, is a 4 star experience just outside of the town of Cape May. We heard about it from talking with my new friends at the Cape May Chamber Visitors Center ,downtown by the bus terminal. The staff is a wealth of good local info, not just what the tourist wants to hear. SO we listened while they told me about The Old Grange and their early bird special before 6pm, Tuesday thru Saturday. They said it was so filling there was hardly any room for dessert. Truer words were never spoken to this Trip Advisor reviewer. The menu changes every Tuesday so if you hold on to a copy, it wont do you any good. We thought we had the choice of Pork Cutlet,Grilled Chicken breast, or Mahi-Mahi. Instead the menu showed Chicken Fried Steak which my wife ordered and the Filet of Fish topped with stewed tomatoes that I had, along with always a third choice. The meal comes with soup, tomato bisque and split pea were great. You then get a deviled egg, rolls and butter,and a large wedge salad with homemade dressing that is hard to describe except fabulous. It was kinda like a wine vinaigrette but that doesn't do it justice. After all that, and some good homemade ice tea, our meals came. They are served with 3 vegetables of the day, potatoes,carrots, cauliflower, and green beans to name a few all done separately and seasoned to perfection. SO if you have made it this far, you now have to find room for dessert, something not always found on an early bird menu. We lucked out because the lemon glaze pound cake ,which I am sure was very good, changed to fresh strawberry shortcake. The portion, while not large, is enough at this point in the meal to send you home more than satisfied. And then you get the bill, 18$ per person, complete. You say whats the catch? Its that this word of mouth new restaurant will soon have the early bird and regular diners lining up outside for this wonderful new addition to the Cape May restaurant offerings. Don't let it remain hidden on your list for long, or you will miss out.
