Rat’s Restaurant at the Grounds For Sculpture


Grounds For Sculpture’s charming restaurant, Rat’s, conceived as part of sculptor Seward Johnson’s vision; is designed to make visitors feel they have stepped into a village reminiscent of French impressionist Claude Monet’s beloved town of Giverny.  Overlooking Johnson’s sculptures inspired by Impressionists paintings, as well as the lily pond and bridge inspired by the works of Monet, Rat’s offers a magical ambiance for dining and a lovely complement to the Grounds For Sculpture experience.  With lunch and dinner menus featuring cosmopolitan home cooking, Rat’s is a welcome part of every visit.  The Lounge at Rat’s Restaurant offers a relaxing and exotic escape to rest and enjoy.  Discover our hand crafted cocktails, eclectic wine list and our delicious light fare.  The Lounge at Rat’s is the perfect way to begin or cap off your visit to Grounds For Sculpture.

Why the name Rat’s?  In Kenneth Grahame’s classic, The Wind in the Willows, one of Seward Johnson’s, favorite books, the character Ratty represented everything a host should be.  As founder of Rat’s and Grounds For Sculpture, Johnson likens himself to Ratty who threw the best parties with the best wine.  Likewise, the two share delightful imaginations and far-reaching dreams.
