For 21 years the Bruynswyck Inn, on Bruynswick Road, has been an oasis for those living in the southwest corner of Gardiner. And, yes, the Inn and the road are spelled differently, just in case each isn’t hard enough to spell already.
Now we’ll have only the road to worry aboout. Just before Thanksgiving last year, Chef Jean Boulidor and Manager and Bookkeeper Lee Ann Muller found a buyer and headed off into a much earned retirement.
The Gazette wrote about their luscious escargot in the Fall 2015, and their splendid duck in the summer of 2012, and though actually in Shawangunk, the restaurant and bar were frequently crowded with Gardiner residents, who had their same spot at the bar, or a favorite table in the dining room.
The Gazette has not yet succeeded in making contact with the new owner, but according to Lee Ann, the building will be closed for a while for renovations and will reopen as a restaurant, in the spring if all goes according to plan.
We’ll stay on top of developments there, and report back. We’re all going to miss Jean and Lee Ann and the great food and home-like atmosphere. They gave us their very best for a long time, and for that we thank them.
