When we sit, the first thing we order is a cheese plate. What we have been anxiously waiting for since we booked the vacation! Ascutney Mountain, Landaff, Pawlet, Tarentaise, triple creme ($7 each) come plated with hazelnuts, preserves and these delicious maple crackers that we just can’t get enough of!
We all pick the short rib dumplings special ($25). The meat is tender and flavorful and the dumplings melt in your mouth. It looks like a small portion, but by the time we are done with the main course we are stuffed.
It doesn’t look pretty, but the pot de creme ($8) was rich in flavor, but light and creamy. An excellent way to end the evening. Love the ambiance, the service was excellent and the food is exceptional. Make reservations well in advance is you are going to VT in the peak seasons – as the restaurant is small and reservations go quickly!
