Simon Pearce Review

Sparkling glassware from the studio downstairs, exposed brick, flickering candles, and large windows overlooking the falls of the roaring Ottauquechee River create an ideal setting for contemporary American cuisine. The food is widely considered to be worthy of a pilgrimage. Horseradish-crusted blue cod with crispy leeks, herb mashed potatoes, and balsamic shallot reduction as well as roast duck with mango chutney sauce are house specialties; the wine cellar holds several hundred vintages.

    Always delightful

    We discovered the Simon Pearce restaurant many years ago when in Vermont for Christmas and have returned every year since. We can't speak highly enough either of the friendly service (and especially the child-friendly service) or of the food. Highly recommended: leave room for the white chocolate mousse cake with raspberry coulis.
