This modern hotel restaurant serves a sophisticated yet approachable menu.
The 10-year-old Delafield Hotel’s sale to a new owner in 2015 preceded – and prompted – a complete aesthetic and culinary overhaul of the restaurant formerly known as Andrew’s.
The motto, “exceptional dining that’s casual,” extends to the idea that we need to respect the land from which our food comes. The menu is organized not by course or by the labels “meat,” “fish” or “vegetable.” It’s organized by price – not outlandish digits, either.

Sunny dining room/open kitchen where the bill of fare comes in a bowl. The menu features grain-, vegetable- and smoothie-based bowls. Highlights: chocolate peanut-butter smoothie and Green Goddess barley bowl.
Wondering how a vessel full of healthy foods came to be called a “Buddha bowl,” I do what comes naturally in our tech-dominated age: turn to Google. It turns out something so zen-sounding doesn’t just refer to plant-based meals-in-a-bowl but also to superfoods (acai fruit), nuts and grains all nestled in one dish.
Although Armeli’s Restaurant has all the classics, from seafood to salads, we recommend trying one of their legendary pizzas. Some kinds include Armeli’s Deluxe, BYO Pizzas or Specialty Uno Pizza. Get a side order of their specialty house pastas too, of course.
