A restaurant post.

.

Just down the road from the snowflake museum…

.

.

We discovered a gem.

.

.

Housed in an old inn, the restaurant/bar was warm and inviting.

.

.

Most of the dining sections were full so we grabbed a high top near the empty bar.

.

.

Seeing the empty bar made me wonder about the quality of libations….

.

.

But a stellar blood orange cranberry gin fizz allayed my fears.

Of course this was Vermont, so some of the menu items put me off.

.

.

A skillet full of kale? There wasn’t enough gin in the state to make me order that.

.

.

Ditto the falafel, though the maple chicken didn’t sound bad.

.

.

But the clam chowder was homemade, rich, creamy and full of fresh herbs so I started with that.. accompanied by the most amazing peach cornbread with orange whipped butter you’ve ever tasted. Ooh la la! I raved over them so much the waitress brought me extra of both to take home.

The beer? I thought you might notice that.

.

.

I tried both of these.

.

.

Because a girl gets thirsty when she eats salad.

😉

.

.

We enjoyed this place so much we stayed long enough to order dessert. (Mainly because the husband found a fellow veteran to talk to… and you know how long that can take.)

Pumpkin cheesecake for him, Key lime pie for yours truly.

If you’re ever in the Jericho area of Vermont drop in. You won’t be sorry.

  1. The BLT has too much stuff on it, BLT, you know, but the peach cornbread sounds incredible. I froze a bunch of peaches over the summer, so I may have to make a batch. Is the cornbread white or yellow? The beer selection proves that you are in it for the taste more than the effect. 3.5%? Your heart’s in the right place. I’m gonna have to plan a month off to check out all these places. Don’t think I’m not willing to do it.

    1. The cornbread was yellow with little juicy chunks is peaches. Weird, but divine with the orange butter.
      As for the beer… the blood orange sour was a tad disappointing but come on, the stout was 10%.

  2. I was curious to see if Jericho Vermont was named after the ancient city of Jericho, and sure enough, it is. This brought to mind the famous Negro spiritual JOSHUA FIT THE BATTLE OF JERICHO, sung here by the great gospel singer (introduced by someone you probably remember):

  3. A good sign that the restaurant is going to be pricy is when they wheel up an ATM to your table. No way I am paying $9 for a bowl of clam chowder, no matter how creamy it is, I do not pay for cream, I pay for clams.

    1. Clams are expensive, and this was loaded with them. I live in Maine and have paid more than $9 for bowl. I’ve also dug them at low tide. It’s backbreaking work. South Portland seafood has a 25 count bag of littlenecks for $25 today. That’s a buck a clam.

  4. Wait first kale and now falafel? Okay I love both, but I won’t judge because you like alcohol, lol. And that makes us sisters in arms, kinda, maybe sisters in alcohol. That food looks really good, I love clam chowder especially when it’s cold.
