With a daughter at Bard, we've been exploring the surrounding town for good restaurants for occasional family dinners and just tried Arielle. We went for an early Sunday dinner and were surprised to see many other diners at 5:00. After enjoying our meal, we knew why. This place is the best in town. Food was top notch. Service and ambiance were best in class. Among the four of us we had a beet salad, an arugula pear salad, feather light gnocchi, perfectly seasoned moules provencale, a big juicy cheese burger and the lemon tart which was like a lemon merengue pie with a thicker cake-like crust. I would recommend every dish. Even the coffee was rich and flavorful. Enjoy!
