Located in the heart of Vermont’s lush Green Mountains, The Chantecleer Restaurant has long been recognized as one of the stars of the local dining scene. Set inside a remodeled da
iry barn with a majestic stone fireplace, the Chantecleer provides a romantic atmosphere unlike any other restaurant in the area.  It is the perfect place for a special occasion or just a night out.

    Chef Michel’s cuisine is a perfect marriage of European sophistication and fresh American ideas. For the last 25 years he has delighted patrons with perennial favorites such as escargot with hazelnut butter, whole dover sole with capers and lemon and succulent rack of lamb. Alongside these classics one can find creative fresh fish and game offerings. Make sure you save room for a creative palette of homemade dessert offerings from our pastry chef. From a perfectly prepared créme brulée to a decadent Basel torte, you are sure to find something sinful to finish the perfect meal.  

    The Chantecleer also features an extensive wine list, a full bar and a lounge area if you are just looking to have a drink with a friend and maybe an appetizer or two.
