The Restaurant is a little bit of Paris transplanted to New England. Its casually elegant French bistro-style atmosphere and sophisticated menus evoke the Old World and dining by the Seine, even though we are located in the heart of the Connecticut River Valley.
The daily and seasonally changing menus are developed emphasizing use of the many diverse organic, natural and artisan ingredients produced locally and regionally. James Bergin, the talented and imaginative executive chef, leads his culinary team in creating dishes showcasing French gastronomic precision. The same thoughtfulness and care put into the cuisine is found on the wine list, which features a selection of bottles mindfully chosen to highlight the nuances in every dish.
The Restaurant is a serene and inviting spot, whether for a casual lunch and cocktails with close friends or for a celebratory (perhaps romantic) dinner with champagne -- and it's right next door to L.A. Burdick Chocolate!
