Along with the Community Oven, this is the only restaurant that regularly taps Blue Lobster beers so it’s something special. They have wonderful, imaginative food but even on week days they’re busy. This is a townie paradise, so be prepared for conflicts to arise the next stool over. Obviously, ordering requires having underdone vocal lessons from Barney Greenway. The beer list is quite unimpressive, however; so far they’ve only had Gold Claw and Red Sky with an occasional seasonal favorite which means if the keg’s been kicked and you’re here for the beer, you may want to leave early. The upstairs is worth checking out. The walls to the stairway are lined with empty wine bottles and may have a few genies in them but you’ll have to rub and see. Bartenders were affectionate, knowledgeable and above all, helpful. I’d go here just for their mixed drinks alone. Order their VT Maple Syrup White Russian: ridiculously good.
