Last year, I dropped the ball and didn't make it out to a single restaurant during the promotion, so this year I was determined to get to at least one. In fact, I made it out to two--Farmhouse Tap and Grill and Michael's on the Hill. I had been to both of these restaurants before last week, but I will say that the special Restaurant Week tasting menus made for a better gastro-experience this time around.
And now, in pictures, the Maple and Ramp Tasting Menu at Michael's...
Phil with the Rabbit and Ramp Terrine with maple mustard.
Maple-Smoked Vermont Trout with heirloom-bean salad and pickled-ramp crème fraîche...YUMMY!
Maple Glazed Pork Loin with potato-ramp roesti and creamed mushrooms.
And Maple Pudding with rhubarb compote, Chantilly cream and maple sugar.
