The Oak & The Reeds

We chose to name our restaurant after this Aesop's Fables classic for its moral depiction of resilience.  It is incredibly relevant as the City of Middletown has made great strides towards revitalizing the area, sparking a Renaissance in the Lower Hudson Valley.  It also represents how we as a restaurant conduct business, with humility and flexibility.  After all, it is our City too and we take pride in serving our neighbors.


A very large oak was uprooted by the wind and thrown across a stream. It fell among some Reeds, which it thus addressed: “I wonder how you, who are so light and weak, are not entirely crushed by these strong winds.” They replied, “You fight and contend with the wind, and consequently you are destroyed; while we on the contrary bend before the least breath of air, and therefore remain unbroken, and escape." - Aesop (Townsend version), 1919
