The Lincoln Inn & Restaurant at the Covered Bridge in Woodstock has reopened its Paul Newman Private Dining Room as the Chef's Table. Prior to the Hollywood legend's death in 2008, the space was used to serve Newman and his family when they visited the inn, according to owner Mara Mehlman.

Now, equipped with one table that can accommodate up to six people, the Chef's Table will serve diners a seven- or 12-course meal in a more private setting than the inn's restaurant, which can seat 40. During each course, the chef, Jevgenija Saromova, will speak about her inspiration for the dish. One recent meal included skate; agnolotti with rabbit and quail; two steak courses; salmon; sea bass; and chocolate fondant.

While the inn's main dining room is typically open Thursday through Sunday, special arrangements may be made other nights of the week for the Chef's Table, which requires reservations.

How quickly do you judge a new restaurant?

  • If it's not good the first time I eat there, I won't go back.
  • I like to give new places a couple chances before I file a verdict
  • I try to take each dining experience on its own merits — all restaurants have off days!
  • I like to wait a while before trying new spots — so they can work out the kinks.
  • If a restaurant isn't perfect by its first anniversary, time to call it quits.
