The Bridgetown Mill House, circa 1791 was once a private home, and has been elegantly transformed into a gorgeous little inn with an excellent fine dining restaurant.

Bucks County native Chef Michael Sujansky has worked at The Bridgetown Mill House since the restaurant opened in 2003. I had the opportunity to meet him after having dinner in late March 2010. Like many young chefs, a position as a dishwasher at a restaurant first planted the seed that he might like a career as a chef. To pursue his career, he attended the prestigious culinary program at Johnson & Wales in Providence, Rhode Island. Upon graduation he honed his culinary career working at Main Line, Pennsylvania restaurants, followed by working at restaurants in New Hope in Bucks County. When the opportunity to work at The Bridgetown Mill House arose, he quickly accepted.

Chef Michael Sujansky’s focus is to create great food, simply prepared, which is the perfect complement to the elegant dining room where the tables are set with pristine white linens, sparkling crystal, cut flowers in silver vases, and tea lights in glass holders. The ambience is gracious with attentive service by a knowledgeable staff, and classical music sets the mood in the dining room which features three walls of windows, a rough stone wall, an oversized brick hearth, an 1800s reclaimed brick floor, and an 1800s wood-beamed ceiling.

The menu every three months, which keeps things interesting, he works with local farms, and creates tapas for outdoor dining in the summer months. When not working at the restaurant, he enjoys spending time with his wife and two young sons ages 2 ½ and 1½, and barbecuing for his friends at his home.
