Fodor's Expert Review Bread & Wine Vineyard Restaurant
This rustic restaurant on Môreson Farm has won numerous accolades for its food and is a great place to stop for lunch on the Wine Tram route. Owner Neil Jewell, “the Charcuterie Guru,” is the man behind the food, and he has stuck to local, seasonal produce. The menu changes often, and on a whim, but you can expect dishes like mussels in a creamy sauce and herb risotto with whipped boerenkaas cheese. There’s an interesting selection of side dishes, including dauphinoise potatoes and root vegetables braised in beer. The dessert menu is full of rich, decadent sweets, from truffles and nougat to soufflés and pana cotta. The restaurant is child-friendly, with an indoor play area complete with books and toys and a garden outside. After lunch, you can stock up on homemade preserves, bread, and charcuterie, including bacon and “lamb ham” at the Farm Grocer. If you like, you can also try a bread-, wine-, or charcuterie-making course on the farm.
