“Creative menu, great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2011

I visited this restaurant for lunch recently and was so surprised at this gem located in downtown Rutland. I had the Beet Salad, Chicken Curry sandwich, and a side of coleslaw. The salad was fresh and mixed with a flavorful dressing. The goat cheese was yummy and not overpowering (as it can be at times). The chicken wasn't dry and was served on grilled flatbread. The mix of vegetables and curry was perfect, and you could actually TASTE the curry. Many times a restaurant will use curry, but not enough to actually flavor the dish. The coleslaw was crispy and had a great kick to it. I'll definitely return to this restaurant when I'm back in the area. Bravo!
