The New Station House, 3 Side Cut Road, West Redding, CT
The New Station House is owned by Abe Ali and is located right by the West Redding Metro North Train Station. It is in the old train station house. You might be wondering, if it’s in the old station house…. why it’s called The New Station House… but we’ll get to that later. The ride to the restaurant was very beautiful, you get to drive through some very pretty scenery… get to see some very old houses, woods and you get a really good view of the Saugatuk Reservoir. The New Station House is decorated pictures of the train station many years ago and there is also some very cool art that are called Vortex Paintings which are 3-D paintings made with ground sandstone and are supposed to have healing powers.
And now let’s talk about the food. Today I wanted to try something different, and I heard that The New Station House had some interesting varieties of pancakes. When l looked at the menu I saw something I’ve never seen before — Corn and Cheddar Pancakes — they even had little kernels of corn in them – it tasted like a corn muffin meets a pancake it was really good with Real Maple Syrup and a Side of Bacon. I also had a Hot Chocolate. Dad had a Brie, Artichoke and Spinach Omelet which he liked a lot — I got to try the Home Fries - they were excellent, crispy, huge chunks of potatoes.
I also asked, “What is your favorite breakfast?”
Mr. Abe said, “I love the Florentine Omelet… which is Spinach and Feta, it’s my kind of flavors”.
So… why is the restaurant in the “Old” Train Station House called the “New” Station House?
According to one of our servers, Barbara… “They changed the name when Abe became the NEW owner!”
