This is the restaurant to go to in Vermont if you are a foodie. I went here in October 2011 while I was in Ludlow and I couldn't believe I found this little gem. Pretty much everything on the menu is local and so fresh. I had the mussels and lobster-corn bisque and they were amazing. Everyone else loved their dishes, too -- from gnocchi to a pimento burger. The signature drinks were also good, although overpriced. But the best part of the dinner was the desserts. Their signature dessert -- french toast with bacon ice cream and Vermont maple syrup was THE best dessert I've had anywhere -- and the sorbets were amazing. Furthermore, the owners and wait staff are extremely friendly and welcoming. I can't wait to go back when I'm in town - it rivals some of the best gastronomic experiences I've had in food towns, like NY or Chicago.
