Limoncello at the Orange Inn: Goshen, NY

After all of our winery visits on the Shawangunk Wine Trail, how could we resist stopping here for a bite to eat!?!unnamed (80)

Limoncello at the Orange Inn was opened by brothers Luigi and Victor Kapiti in August of 2006.  These brothers renovated what was once a rundown restaurant and inn.  The Orange Inn was a Goshen Landmark, dating back to 1790.  Many historical figures were guests at the inn, especially from the Revolutionary War era.  The inn’s well-known guests ranged from George Washington to James Cagney.

We enjoyed a snack of fried calamari served with Thai chili sauce – which I highly recommend if you ever find yourself visiting Limoncello at the Orange Inn! unnamed (94)

Bon appetit!
