In a January 20th press release, Newark's Cherry Valley Hotel representatives announced that The Craftsman Kitchen & Terrance would resume service, after closing down due to COVID-19-related issues early on in the pandemic.
"The reviews were excellent during the first launch pre-COVID. We so look forward to welcoming back people to this community destination," said Cherry Valley Hotel's general manager, Tim Norton.
The Craftsman's menu boasts fine dining selections including Grilled Ribeye, Chicken Piccata, and Lake Eerie Walleye. Bar food-style options include pizza pies and a selection of handhelds, such as the Mile High Rueben. In addition, customers can enjoy a wide variety of beer, wine, and cocktail options, namely a Blueberry Mule and The Craftsman Old Fashion.
The restaurant is open on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 5 PM until 9 PM. Reservations are not required, but recommended. Reservations can be made at https://www.cherryvalleyhotel.com/dining-drinks/.
Cherry Valley representatives are confident that the restaurant's atmosphere will intrigue hotel guests. Per the press release, The Craftsman's indoor space is "intimate and stylish with comfortable seating and large windows overlooking the gardens." When temperatures rise, outdoor seating spaces will overlook "beautiful landscaping, ponds and waterfalls."
The Craftsman Kitchen & Terrace joins a Cherry Valley slate of dining options that includes Homestead Public House, The Igloo Dining Experience, and The Lobby Bar.
"A diverse selection of dining options enhances our hotel guest experience," said Norton.
The Cherry Valley team anticipates that the addition of this new restaurant will help to provide guests with "a more dynamic stay."
