Fodor's Expert Review The Crystal Quail

$$$$ Alton Bay American Fodor's Choice

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

With just four tables tucked inside an 18th-century farmhouse, this restaurant is worth the drive for its sumptuous meals. Longtime proprietors Harold and Cynthia Huckaby use free-range meats and mostly organic produce and herbs to prepare a daily-changing prix-fixe menu that could feature pheasant pâté, sautéed quail with wild mushrooms, or oat-crusted trout in a beurre blanc sauce.
