As Vermonters, my wife and I love to explore our awesome state. We ordered apps only. We had a special pulled pork egg roll with peanut sauce, amazing! Escargot!, Maple Pork belly! Incredible dessert; bread pudding with coconut creme...unbelievable.

Small unique restaurant run by the chef/owner and wife. Wonderful selection of starters and entrees. Bread pudding with coconut anglaise is a winner. Wine selection is small but completely compliments the menu. The service is friendly and knowledgeable. By far my favorite restaurant in Manchester...More
