Well off the beaten path, this small restaurant overlooking a lake is worth the drive down a dirt road. The chef prepares small, medium, and large plates of New England–inspired cuisine based on local sources. Favorites include herb-crusted lamb loin and line-caught swordfish. Don't leave without ordering a board of Vermont cheeses, which pair especially well with the excellent wine selection.
