After 39 years of ownership, Don and Jane Brown have sold the Corner House Inn to Lexi Townsend, 33, a resident of Sandwich. Lexi is proud to reintroduce the 170-seat hidden gem, which now showcases a new Vulcan kitchen, Tappan chairs in The Gallery, and extensive renovations throughout. It was Lexi’s idea to start from the romantic interior and work her way outside.
Chef Steven Mitchell returns to Corner House on August 18th to re-create classics as well as introduce new menu items for your future enjoyment.
Corner House will maintain the 33-year tradition of storytelling events on Thursday nights. Additional special events include live music on Wednesday & Friday, Trivia on Monday, and a form of “Wine Not” involving the option of beer on Monday. A theater menu, artist dinners, historically themed nights—and more involvement with Clarence the Ghost—will all begin post-Sandwich Fair.
Lexi grew up in Upstate New York, and got started in the hospitality business young when her grandparents took over a golf course, and added 9 holes and renovated the kitchen and restaurant. Her first job at age 9 was picking rocks and dishwashing. Her next stop was working in a fine-dining restaurant all through high school in all positions. From there, she enrolled in a Swiss-based hotel and restaurant management school in Suffield, Connecticut, the International College of Hospitality Management Cesar Ritz.
She was drafted by the Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia and Lacroix at The Rittenhouse Hotel to manage the food & beverage departments. She set out for New Hampshire in 2017 for a better quality of life -- the ability to ski and boat and to go back to a rural setting.
Corner House Restaurant & Bar serves dinner nightly from 5:00 pm, and is closed Tuesdays. 22 Main Street, Center Sandwich, 603-284-6219
