The idea for Stone Hearth emerged from a desire to contribute to the continuing redevelopment of the Westville Village Historic District and to fill a need for a neighborhood family restaurant.
The concept for this style of restaurant came from its location across from the park where a farmers’ market is held on weekends throughout the spring, summer and fall.
To complement the setting, a modern farmhouse bistro design was selected. The construction process engaged local tradesmen, suppliers, and materials to build into the essence of Stone Hearth a spirit of Westville, New Haven, and Connecticut. Reclaimed woods from Connecticut walnuts and oaks were painstakingly handcrafted into panels for the bar, interior doors, and select table tops. A custom brick oven was commissioned and built in Washington State and trucked across the country to form the centerpiece of the restaurant. It is the “hearth” in Stone Hearth.
Foods served at Stone Hearth are made from locally and regionally sourced ingredients as weather, season, and availability permit.
The menu features these and other ingredients converted into a variety of dishes that will appeal to a wide range of tastes and diets. Vegetarian, low calorie, paleo, and gluten free* selections are available.

Stone Hearth’s comprehensive bottled wine list is selected to meet a broad variety of tastes and palates. Wines served by the glass are from vineyards that are a combination of small family owned, organic, or sustainable endeavors. .
Besides a normal selection of bottled beers the drafts are local and regional. The bar staff is expert and has a variety of cocktails that cover both the traditional and the cutting edge of mixology.
