It’s hard to believe that The Grange Restaurant and Farm Market was the local post office circa 1903 in Warwick’s hamlet of New Milford. A post office is usually in the town center, but this restaurant is tucked off a side street, identified by its hand-painted welcome sign.
Chef-Owner James Haurey opened The Grange in 2013 with partner Dominique Herman. Both Haurey and Herman cut their culinary chops at the legendary Ryland Inn in Whitehouse, NJ, under Chef Craig Shelton.
