My husband and I stayed in the Delaware Water Gap area for one night, and with some quick Blackberry research, discovered Antelao's - a 12 table restaurant that is the labor of love of a husband-and-wife chef and hostess. Slightly less than formal, but not informal (tablecloths, soft lighting, and generally mature diners) with colorful art on the walls, on the ground floor of a spruced-up Victorian house. The menu is on the smaller size, but with specials there are plenty of options. Focus is on local, seasonal, creative preparation - but not contrived. Elvi, our hostess/waitress/owner, is so genuine and warm, and we had such a nice time chatting with her about herbs, the menu, and the local area. I had the shortribs braised with wine and tamarind and husband had the largest filet mignon I think I've ever seen, and perfectly cooked rare. Both delicious, as were the house made sorbets (especially the mint). Would I have done some things differently? Could the vegetable sides have been more specific to the dishes? Would it have been 4 stars in NYC? Who cares? It was a wondreful meal and a wonderful evening all together
