Meal With a View

The Brothers Moon at night

Will Mooney, Chef/owner of The Brothers Moon in Hopewell, tells me that his newly refurbished patio looks out over “Main Street America.”  An apt description for downtown Hopewell!  You can’t see it in the lovely nighttime picture here (from their website, and what I saw when I enjoyed dinner there a few months ago), but the patio offers comfortable chairs, nice iron tables, and shade from umbrellas. 

With about 24 seats, a water fountain, flowers, hanging baskets and mint growing on a nearby wall…well, what are you waiting for?  Restaurants are putting more and more effort into outdoor dining, as we increasingly emulate days gone by (and European ways?). 

This would be a sweet spot to sit, enjoy a great meal, and watch the world go by from your leafy bower.  And, after lunch or before dinner, there is a lot to see in Hopewell, such as exploring nearby galleries and shops.  Check out their new website (very attractive!), and, yes, they are open Father’s Day for brunch (10-2) and early dinner (4-8), but do call ahead to see if they have room, 609-333-1330.
