Eating, where to purchase food and restaurants near Chez Winthrop:

We have a six burner, two stove range coupled with both a ceramic grill and weber grill. The ceramic grill can sear a 2.5” thick porterhouse for two minutes a side at 850 and then grill at 450 for seven minutes a side for the perfect medium rare steak! It can also smoke ribs or poultry for eight hours at 150! To preserve the coal please shut the top and bottom air flows in both grills when you are finished grilling. There are three draws packed with every spice imaginable to the right of the range coupled with a full refrigerator and pantry. Breakfast is included and features Nova, bagels, delicious bread, organic cereal and berries, organic eggs, bacon, juice, milk, coffee and a huge assortment of teas. We have every kitchen appliance and utensils that you can ask for.
