The Sterling Inn Changes Its Name; Goes Casual


The Sterling Inn in New Rochelle is going casual. It’s changing the name to the Sterling Inn Cafe & Wine Bar, and will be offering a tasting of its new dishes on Thursday from 7 to 10 p.m. (If they’re serving the short rib-goat cheese pizza they were sampling at the Greater New York Wine & Food Festival, it’s worth the trip just for that dish.)

The press release:

As times change, so do dining habits. The Sterling Inn not only recognized these changes, but is
responding to them. Effective Friday, April 18th, The Sterling Inn will be introducing its new Casual
Dining Menu.

As individuals and families are beginning to feel the pressure of a difficult economy The Sterling
Inn would like to ease the financial burden of dining out. The traditional fine dining menu at The
Sterling Inn will be replaced with a casual, more accessible menu. Chef Sterling will continue to
demonstrate his award winning skill by providing the finest quality of food and service at a more
economical price point.
ffective Friday, April 18th, 2008, The Sterling Inn will be known as The Sterling Inn Cafe & Wine Bar. To launch the new menu, chef
Sterling Smith will be hosting a Food and Wine Tasting featuring new menu items on Thursday, April 17th, 2008 from 7:00pm to 10:00pm. This event is open to the public.
“Great food is great food. Spring and Summer provide the perfect backdrop for casual dining. After listening to my customers, I felt it
was time to give back, so I created a friendly, price conscious menu to reflect the changing times. I am excited for the opportunity to
provide a variety of quality choices that everyone can enjoy. “

  1. Chef Sterling Smith is a top chef in our area. I love his food – he extracts the essence of flavor from his ingredients, and keeps it simple usually. I give him alot of credit for publicly reognizing and reacting to the public’s need to spend less when we eat out these days.
