Fodor's Expert Review Mary's at Baldwin Creek
People drive from the far reaches of Vermont to dine at this restaurant just beyond Bristol, 13 miles northeast of Middlebury. Allow a little extra time to visit the sprawling gardens around the beautiful property; they represent the slow approach to cooking that earned this restaurant its stellar reputation. Hearty fare includes the summer lasagna packed with vegetables and the near-legendary garlic soup, a creamy year-round staple that seems calculated to please. Desserts can be hit-or-miss.
