Berkshire Style September 2014

Nestled in the heart of Wassaic, New York, the Lantern Inn remains a quintessential local favorite with a fresh, new (and delicious) addition to their traditional bar: wood-fired pizzas. 

Since 1890 the Lantern Inn has been declared “A Wassaic Tradition." Now the tradition continues and expands with a delicious and creative pizza menu. Enjoy the classic tasty Margherita, the sweet and spicy Maxon Mills or the farm fresh flavor of the Luther Barn. 

In addition to their fine pizza creations, the Lantern Inn offers a delicious selection of wings and variety of fresh weekly specials. Eat in the comfortable atmosphere of Wassaic’s favorite bar. 

Follow up a delicious meal with a game of pool or a few hours of casual conversation over refreshing cold drinks at the Inn’s famous bar for the perfect relaxing evening out with friends.

A wonderfully comprehensive review from Restaurant Business

It’s clear that the new owners are lavishing attention on the food and drink, but the prices are affordable and the vibe remains laid back. It’s a mix that attracts the blue-collar locals and struggling artists along with well-heeled weekenders looking for artisan pizza and burgers and small-batch brews. Judging from the crowd on a Sunday night this summer, it’s a mix that seems to be working for the Lantern Inn. The restaurant has reinvented itself in step with the times and today’s taste buds. And the pool tables have survived the reinvention intact and as popular as ever.

The food and drinks are similarly straightforward and sophisticated. The Black Angus burgers are locally sourced and there are craft beers on tap from Westchester’s Captain Lawrence and Keegan Ales across the Hudson in Kingston. But the real star is the pizza, cooked in a wood-fired oven and topped with ingredients like local sausage and wild mushrooms, which traces its pedigree to Roberta’s in Bushwick (Angelo Womack, a former chef there, developed the recipe).

“The vibe is just so great,” said Dana Cowin, the editor-in-chief of Food & Wine, who stopped in with her family for dinner. “And I really like the pizza.”
