We have been vacationing in Vermont for years, but had not come across "The Perfect Wife" restaurant until 2 summers ago. We were with our children (teens) and decided to try a new restaurant. There is both a dining room (more formal) and a tavern where dinner is served. We were in the dining room overlooking a beautiful garden. The appetizers were imaginative and delicious. Our children had a Peking Duck appetizer that was amazing. Our entrees were also delicious; each one slightly unique and beautifully presented. Although the menu varies, we had an English Trifle for dessert which was fabulous. We have been back twice since and have not been disappointed. This restaurant is a true find in rural Vermont.
