The Essex Shipyard Marina has been repaired and updated after the horrible flooding of 2011. Linda and Ray Faville, who also ran the Essex Shipyard last summer, are promising a great new treat: the Essex Shipyard will be opening a restaurant this summer!
Essex Shipyard was recently renovated to provide boaters with safe, modern and convenient services. […] Boaters staying at the Essex Shipyard for the season or for a day or two, enjoy calm water (no matter how rough the Lake gets), comfortable slips with newly appointed amenities and spectacular views of the Green Mountains, Adirondacks and Lake Champlain. (Essex Shipyard)
Essex Shipyard Restaurant: Chez Lin & Rays
The restaurant, Chez Lin & Rays, will be situated right on the water, and you can enjoy a great view while partaking in delicious food. Come for lunch or dinner (or both!). Be on the look out for the restaurant’s opening on June 1st!
Chefs Linda and Ray Faville welcome Essex locals and tourists to their new restaurant on their website:
We opened our first restaurant in 1986, and for the past 27 years have been serving up a variety of fresh delicious American Continental dishes cooked to order and with a flair for taste that brings people back year after year. We don’t take any shortcuts with our food. We buy the freshest ingredients, often from local farms and producers [when possible…]
Chez Lin & Rays is a charming waterfront restaurant serving tasty food and fine wine, along with wonderful views. Chef created specials every night, homemade soups, and delicious desserts. (Essex Shipyard)
I spoke with Chef Linda, and she told me a bit about their plans for the summer restuarant!
We both fell in love with Essex and are very much looking forward to this season. We will begin opening preparations in April and hopefully be ready for June. Our tentative operating season will be June 1st to mid-Sept.
Being part of the marina, the restaurant atmosphere will be casual & relaxing. There is a large, outdoor deck overlooking the lake, as well as indoor dining. Our menu will have many options, from “small plates” to “light fare” to traditional “entrees”
Are you excited? I am! I can’t wait to sample to new fare at this new Essex restaurant this summer!
