This quintessential farm to table establishment is one of the best restaurants in Vermont. It combines modern cooking with a traditional farm setting. Perched on the hills of a large private farm, the restaurant is dependent entirely on locally grown ingredients. Chef White is developing a phenomenal three course menu twice a week. The sourdough bread is baked in house daily and is always perfect. In our most recent visits we tasted one of the best menu we have ever had here. Dinner started with herb gnocchi, followed by beef shank osso buco cooked to perfection. The desert was a mouthwatering traditional carrot cake with a modern twist. Service was as always warm and welcoming! Another superb experience in Cloudland farm!
The Simon Pearce restaurant in Quechee, VT is one of our favorite Sunday brunch spots. Consistently solid cooking, warm, and welcoming service! Executive chef Brian Gazda uses the freshest Vermont ingredients to compose simple but powerful creations. The menu has recently changed, and one of our favorite dishes, the corned beef hash, has been replaced by a lighter plate (ham and eggs). The creme brûlée french toast with Vermont maple syrup remains one of the highlights of the menu. All glassware, pottery, and centerpieces on your table are handmade on site. The restaurant is located over a waterfall giving the guests some spectacular views, and immersing them in Vermont nature. Always an amazing experience!
Cloudland farm is a true gem set in the pastoral hills of Pomfret, Vermont. The restaurant is located in a post and beam building made from Eastern White Pine that was harvested from the farm. Chef Ira White defines farm-to-table dining in this restaurant. He prepares dishes made from ingredients that are grown at Cloudland and from other local organic farms. The evening's menu, which changes almost weekly, is selected by the chef using seasonal ingredients, which include beef, pork, chicken or turkey grown at Cloudland. All the ingredients used come from Vermont. Chef White achieves culinary excellence by employing complex techniques and creating dishes that reflect the season and are faithful to local tradition. The restaurant bakes one of the most spectacular sourdough breads we have ever tasted. Whether sitting on the porch before your meal or dining near the fireplace, your visit will be filled with the views and peaceful sounds of the farm where the delicious food you enjoy was raised. The restaurant does not have a liquor license, so guests are encouraged to bring their own alcoholic beverages. Overall a truly amazing experience in an idyllic setting!
