In this episode of Weekends with Yankee, co-host Amy Traverso ventures into the Back Bay neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts, where a young couple from Paris have opened up their first restaurant, Café Sauvage. Antoine and Anaïs Lambert offer a taste of modern Paris infused with Anaïs’s West African roots, and share the beauty and flavors created by mixing cultures.
Next, co-host Richard Wiese explores the idyllic town of Essex, Connecticut. He starts at the old Steamboat Dock at the Connecticut River Museum to learn about the town’s rail and maritime history. He also visits the Griswold Inn for a tour of one of the oldest continually run inns in the country and a fun night of maritime music – sea chanteys with the inn’s one-of-a-kind “Jovial Crew.”
Finally, we visit the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester, New Hampshire, to get an up-close tour of the only two Frank Lloyd Wright homes in New England that are open to the public. At these two architectural gems located on the same Manchester street, we discover rare insights into the homes’ respective histories and see details stamped with the renowned architect’s signature style.
