Barnard Inn Restaurant

Rte. 12, Barnard, Vermont 05031

When Will Dodson and Ruth Schimmelpfennig graduated from the Culinary Institute of America, they established two successful restaurants in San Francisco before moving into this 1796 red-brick château in the hills of Barnard, Vermont. Opening a restaurant on the ground floor, the couple began serving modernized regional cuisine in a Colonial-style dining room, furnished with white tablecloths, high-backed wooden chairs, and a working fireplace. Emphasizing farm-to-table cuisine, the seasonal tasting menus may include dishes like beef-battered oysters, and roasted duckling with raspberry glace and whipped potatoes. In back, the more casual Max’s Tavern serves a menu of upscale bar fare.
