AOL Travel Editor’s Review

There’s not a heck of a lot of dining options in Yorktown; when the British fled, they seem to have taken all the good restaurants. The Carrot Tree is your best bet, not just for the food, but also for its kitten-cute cottage setting (the house it’s in was built around 1720) and the general eccentricities of the staff—e.g. the manager wears a carrot hat, which makes us smile and feel sorry all at once. But what of the food? It's Mom’s cooking, kicked up a few notches: meatloaf and mashed potatoes, pork loin stuffed with pumpkin and cranberries, and always, a creative vegetarian special plucked from the garden. There’s a satellite branch in Williamsburg, but the Yorktown spot is the original location.
