HomeStowe Top 5Top 5 Fancy Stowe Restaurants

Not too long ago, Stowe was #2 on Fodor’s list of the World’s 10 Best Ski Towns for Foodies, only losing out to Courchevel, France. Not too shabby! Things have only gotten better with each passing year. To make it easy on ourselves, we’ve limited our list to just establishments in Stowe, although we have a couple favorites in nearby towns like the Hen in the Wood and Michaels on the Hill. Be sure to call ahead for reservations. Here are our top five fancy Stowe restaurants. Bon appetite!

Solstice at the Alpine Club

Time for a candlelight dinner at the Solstice with farm-to-table fare using local cheeses, meats, and produce. The high ceilings and contemporary interiors complement the cuisine. Recent dinner specials have included Scallops, Braised Pork Belly with Serrano Honey, Brisket Dumplings, and Halibut over Root Vegetables. A great, upscale casual date night kind of dining spot.

Trapp Family Lodge Main Dining Room

It’s farm-to-table dining in a European setting. Wood paneling, warm interiors, and a great view greet you when you arrive. It is sort of upscale touristy, but sometimes that’s just what you need, especially on Wednesday Prime Rib Dinner Night. Dinner entrees include the Wiener Schnitzel, Beef Liver, Pork & Beef Manicotti and Petite Filet of Beef, all made with Trapp Family Farm grass fed beef or pork. All the bread comes from their own bakery as well!

Rustic interiors featuring wood and stone, and plenty of bright red accents lend this Stowe restaurant a slightly elegant but warm and comfortable feel. Located downstairs in the historic Carlson Building, Harrison’s is constantly rated at the top of fine dining lists for Stowe. Their menu features seafood, steak and pasta with recent customer favorites including mussels in a light cream sauce, pecan-crusted salmon, and homemade key lime pie.

Trattoria La Festa

With an amazing wine list, delicious homemade Italian food, and a friendly atmosphere, it’s no wonder Trattoria has been a local favorite for over 35 years. Tucked inside an old farmhouse, this family-owned and operated restaurant has bright interiors complete with red tablecloths and colorful artwork on the walls. If you love Italian cooking, this is the Stowe restaurant for you. Start things off with the Barrata or Bresaola and move on to the veal chop, duck, or any of their other entrees. Leave room for the Limoncello, Tiramisu’ di Roma, or the Tartuffo!

Edson Hill

Casually elegant, Edson Hill has bright modern interiors, and a “modern approach to classic New England fare.” Enjoy the scenery while seated inside or sit out on the covered deck with the mountains and the pond as a beautiful backdrop to your delicious meal. Small plate options include watermelon gazpacho, fried Brussels sprouts, burrata, and tuna tartare, while large plates include a duck breast, butter poached lobster, and twin lamb chops. And with dessert options like Pear & Fig Gallette, Maple Crème Brulee, and a Chocolate Torte, you’ll have to pace yourself.
