If a dog is a man’s best friend, shouldn’t he be able to dine with him?
If a dog is a man’s best friend, shouldn’t he be able to dine with him? Yes, says The Bernards Inn, an award-winning restaurant in Bernardsville. On Mondays since the start of summer, the upscale eatery has offered “Yappy Hour,” inviting patrons to dine with their pups on its terrace. From 5:30 p.m. until sundown, there are wine flights and complimentary cheese and fruit platters for people and flavored treats for dogs. Yappy Hour will continue till mid-October or as long as the weather permits. The restaurant’s owner has two other dog-friendly establishments, The Station in Bernardsville and Bella’s Burger Shack in Basking Ridge. Other nearby dog-friendly spots include The Hungry Hound and Verve in Somerville, The Grub Hut in Manville and the Dog House in North Plainfield.
