The Farmhouse Tap & Grill Restaurant Review

: The Farmhouse is a haven for rustic gourmets and barley literati. This crowd-pleaser occupies what once housed the city's only McDonald's; an apropos swap, given Vermont's locavore leanings. Meats, produce and dairy are sourced only (when available) from area farms. Delicacies like duck rillettes have replaced the greasy trappings of a fryolator, but country comfort food still draws crowds. Start with the nitty gritty corn muffins: crunchy bite-size snacks softened by slow-churned butter. Or, savor fermented 'dilly' beans, with a vinegar punch well matched with regional cheeses like the Cabot Clothbound Cheddar. But save room for the grill offerings --- whether it's a grass-fed beef burger or the kimchi-covered Farmhouse veggie. Summers boast a backyard beer garden, ideal for al fresco pints, while the garden level Parlor opens during colder months, when winter fires keep patrons happy. With a tap room that pours prized brews from around the world, there's a flavor for every palate. Don't miss the hoppy Hill Farmstead Edward, a crisp pale ale kegged in the Green Mountains. If beer's not your thing, the Farmhouse also tips a heady selection of cellared wine. Try a floral bottle of Louise Swenson from nearby East Shore Vineyards.
