A nice place to be on a cold rainy night. The owners, waitstaff and atmosphere are very welcoming. We needed hearty fare on this evening. The roasted chicken and rice soup was the answer. I ordered the bucatini Bolognese and my husband had cheese tortellini with sausage in a Marsala cream sauce. Both were very good. I was sorry that I was too full for dessert, because they had some nice selections. THe restaurant is a wonderful value, coupled with the fact that it is BYOB. Make a reservation. It's a small place.

First time visiting Bedford and we just happened to call ahead the night before and got a reservation based on the positive online reviews. This new restaurant is located in a small store front with limited seating. Very warm laid back and inviting atmosphere. Did not get our waiter's name but she was very good. We shared the mussels which were cooked perfectly, the bread was light and crispy and we were offered a refill after we emptied the basket! I had the swordfish special and my husband had the shrimp and crab pasta. Both were excellent. We had a late reservation and at the end of the evening the chef came out and joined his wife, who had been greeting and seating guests and personally thanked everyone for coming. We walked back to The lovely Chancellors House B&B feeling very happy and content. Oh, one last thing- they do not serve alcoholic beverages so it is BYOB. Good to know ahead of time. We brought a bottle of our favorite wine. They provided the wine goblets....Great pairing!

An unexpected find in a quaint town. In addition to the food being delicious, the staff and owners were extremely friendly and welcoming. A must stop.

We regularly stay at Bedford Springs and the Chancellor House, both real gems, with the latter having one of the most outstanding breakfasts (and most pleasant hosts) on earth.

However, dinner in the area has long been hit-and-miss. Lifestyle is excellent and all kinds of fun, but only on Saturdays assuming you can wangle a reservation. Bedford Springs' 1796 Room is quite good but woefully overpriced, and its Crystal Room is worthy of a 1960s country club. The Bird's Nest Cafe and Horn O'Plenty are okay, nothing more.

Enter the 10/09 Kitchen, thus named for when the owners got married. It's simple, unpretentious and informal, but folks there have a can-do attitude both in the kitchen and when serving customers. It seems to still be something of a work in progress, but our lone visit indicates they have captured the quality lead for restaurants in and around Bedford. Prices are reasonable, too, and being a BYO helps even more. The value contrast with anything at Bedford Springs couldn't be more stark.

I guess if I were a native of the area I'd do like most others and give the 10/09 Kitchen five stars, too, if only out of heartfelt gratitude -- after all, everything we had here was very good. But we're from an area between Philly and NYC where a restaurant like this would consistently rate four stars.

So, take your pick. But, stars be damned, you won't do better for dinner in the Bedford area than this cheerful and most welcomed downtown eatery.
