Fodor's Review

It's easy to miss this tiny restaurant, but it's worth seeking out as one of the most romantic eateries in Vermont. Open the doors to the sleek black 1920s diner and enter what amounts to a very intimate theater, with a mere 18 seats for the show. The stage is an open kitchen, the flames a few feet away, and working under the whisper of jazz and candlelight is the star of the show: Michael Fuller, the dashing owner and sole chef, who has been at the helm for 30 years. The contemporary menu is conveyed verbally each day and is based on locally available ingredients.
