County, Pennsylvania is a treasure trove of historical
and the Logan Inn,
in the village of
has proudly upheld the tradition of hospitality since it opened as a
1722. Chef/Owner Pete Gialias continues the tradition of
hospitality with his approach of using the freshest of ingredients at
The Logan Inn opened as The Ferry Tavern in 1722 and as an
inn in 1727. It holds the distinction of being the oldest building in New Hope, is the oldest continuously run inn in Bucks County,
and is one of the five oldest in the United States. Having lunch at the
restaurant in early April 2010, I felt as if Edward and I were experiencing a
part of American history.
For lunch, Edward had the Braised Short Ribs served with
mashed potatoes, boiled and braised white onions, sliced carrots, and broccoli
crowns in a rich and hearty gravy.
Braised Short Ribs
I had the Jumbo Lump Crab Cake Sandwich, which our server
explained could be described as the restaurant's signature dish, that was
served on a housemade onion roll accompanied with lettuce, tomatoes, Bermuda onions, a pickle spear, golden steak fries, and
fried asparagus spears.
Jumbo Lump Crab Cake Sandwich
When it comes to crab cakes, I deem myself a connoisseur who
has a definite preference as to how I like them prepared; namely they should
taste fresh, have balanced seasoning, there should be ample crab meat and not
an overabundance of filler, should be delicately golden brown and not greasy.
Chef Pete Gialias' version scored very high on my list of requirements; the
crabmeat was succulent and plentiful with a fresh taste, was perfectly
seasoned, delicately golden, and presented on a housemade onion roll. Add in
crispy steak fries and the unusual, but very tasty, fried asparagus, and the
marks got even higher. The asparagus were interesting with their crispy
seasoned bread crumb coating, and after eating a few, felt that they should
come with the label, may become habit forming; suffice to say, I fell in love
with the fried asparagus.
