The Restaurant In Vermont That Was Named One Of The Best In The World
Well folks, the votes are in and while
we all know that Vermont has fantastic restaurants, Conde Nast Traveler has chosen the best restaurants in the world and guess who made this list? Yup! A hot spot in little old Vermont. That’s right, Hen of the Wood in Waterbury has been named one of the best restaurants in the world. Honestly, we can’t disagree!
On October 7, 2005, Hen of the Wood in Waterbury opened its doors and dining in Vermont was taken to a new level.
The goal of Hen of the Wood was to combine everything that was important to the co-owners and chefs. After years of discussion, they figured out their recipe for success.
The recipe was simple... If you could pull it off!
The keys were to have a warm inviting atmosphere, a historic and visually appealing setting, seamless service and most importantly outstanding wine and beautiful food.
One of the major reasons why this works so well is the bounty of locally sourced food available here.
So when Hen of the Wood opened its doors, it was the beginning of a beautiful relationship with local farmers, cheese makers and the many other people who make Vermont so special.
The interior is casually elegant in this former mill.
And outside it has a picturesque rushing brook.
Possibly the best seat in the house.
These seats provide an epic view and perhaps more so when the brook, rocks, and trees are covered in snow!
Here, the fresh and local ingredients are what guide the menu offerings.
And you'll want to dig right in!
The local growers, artisans, ranchers, bakers, friends and neighbors will always be backbone of Hen of the Wood. Just look at this setting for an outdoor dining experience at Pete's Greens!
Building on their success, a few years ago a second Hen of the Wood was opened in Burlington as well as a new hot spot in Stowe called Doc Ponds.
Dining at Hen of the Wood is a truly magical experience in every way. Find them at 92 Stowe Street, Waterbury.
