Need a date night? Check out these two great restaurants.


The Stissing House, history and delicious food


Located in Pine Plains, The Stissing House Restaurant and Tavern (, is housed in a landmark building, dating back to the late 1700s. Open since 1782, The Stissing House Restaurant and Tavern is now America’s oldest and longest operated restaurant. With clientele such as General George Washington and the Marquis de Lafayette, The Stissing House offers a charming setting to enjoy delicious food.


Owned and operated by French-Americans Michel and Patricia Jean, The Stissing House Restaurant and Tavern is open for dinner every Thursday thru Monday. Their menu changes seasonally, so there are always new creations to try out and enjoy, and they strive to use local dairy, meats and produce.
