Pronounced 'la show me air', La Chaumière is as close as it gets to dining in a French country "inn". The unpretentious atmosphere enhanced by the central stone fireplace, wood beams and stucco walls offers a rustic and romantic escape from city life. Loyal patrons are invariably dazzled by the consistent quality of food prepared by the award winning Chef de Cuisine Patrick Orange. Partners Patrick Orange and Martin Lumet along with their staff, thank you for the opportunity to serve you and hope that you enjoy your visit to La Chaumière.

Merci beaucoup et bon appetit.
