Dining at Pickering House Inn

DINING UPDATE: September 2019

Since we opened Pickering House Inn a year ago, we have been putting plans in place to take our dining experience to the next level. Over the past six months, we have been assembling an amazing culinary team led by Executive Chef Jonathan Hudak, who garnered rave reviews in Connecticut before joining us on September 15, 2019. 

In addition to creating pop-up dining events for Inn guests and the public, Chef Hudak is partnering with us to create The PAVILION, a destination dining experience. Named in honor of The Pavilion Hotel, which was built and operated by Daniel Pickering and his son-in-law on a site opposite today’s Pickering House Inn, The PAVILION will offer great food and spirits, a great environment, and — we hope — a great sense of community.

The PAVILION will be the centerpiece of a transformation of the Avery Building, which is adjacent to Pickering House Inn and part of what was known in the 1800’s as “Banker’s Row.”  Permitting and design is already underway and The PAVILION is scheduled to open in late 2020. To receive updates and news about our progress and plans, please join the PAVILION mailing list at our temporary website:
