About Us


Nestled in the core of Essex Center, Vermont at the entrance to the Essex Town Center & Outlets, a few miles away from the ski-lifts of Mt. Mansfield and Bolton Valley, the restaurant features an open style, dining room surrounded by three walls of windows that allow 180° views of the mountains. Open daily for Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner, we invite you to enjoy a menu that celebrates American Rustic cuisine using classic techniques and premium local ingredients in a variety of exciting dishes ranging from snacks and small plates like antipasto, mac & cheese and Homemade Bruschetta to hearty entrees including Chicken & Broccoli Alfredo, New York Strip Steak and American Mixed Grill, before concluding with a decadent selection of homemade desserts. Guests can also enjoy a hand-crafted cocktail, glass of wine or beer,  or relax outside on the restaurant’s outdoor expansive patio as weather permits.
