@Michael. Did the people from The Cookhouse take it over?

It's wierd, that location has seen many names come and go over the years, yet a place like The Smithy has stood the test of time.

Did the former owners just want to sell, or did something happen that made them jump ship? I never saw any indication that they were struggling...

Yes. Robert Ryder owns The Cookhouse as well. Great barbecue.

Rob also owns The Inn at Newtown, and he has a lot of changes planned by way of service improvement and new menu options. As far as the reason the formers owners sold; they showed very strong numbers in the first full year, but decided to concentrate more on their lower Fairfield County operations.
