While traversing southern Vermont we somehow ended up in Manhattan: An astonishing dining experience on a par with NYC's finest. From start to finish, a delightful evening. Owner and hostess Chloe was absolutely sweet, utterly charming, and very very knowledgeable. This is a quintessential country inn dining experience with exemplary cuisine and sophisticated yet relaxed, friendly and unpretentious service.
The wine list was modest but with something for every palate and pocketbook -- and a reasonable choice of wines by the glass.
The menu was sophisticated and diverse. The salad tasted like it had been picked within the hour. Oysters were very fresh, served with an interesting tangy sauce.. We shared the midcourse special -- stuffed roasted calamari -- quite exotic for the Green Mountains, dontcha know, -- savory and inventive.
We shared the côte de boeuf entree. The "presentation" was not the table-side carving by the chef we anticipated but rather the server bringing out a big unappetizing slab of cooked meat then quickly disappearing and returning a while later with a platter of sliced beef.... tasty and done perfectly, nonetheless. Accompaniments were excellent.
We are not dessert eaters but enjoyed a tasty blueberry and ice cream dish.
In summary, a remarkable sophisticated dining experience in a lovely relaxed Vermont country setting provided by a knowledgeable and friendly team which takes pride in what they do -- and deservedly so.
We are looking forward to our next visit.
