Destination Restaurants?

Hi all! I've been visiting CH for a while now. I really like the new look and feel! I'm a Chef/Owner located in southern VT. I like to eat out, when I can, but am usually stuck going to the same old places for the same old stuff. I'm seeing more and more folks willing to travel some distance to escape the ordinary, searching out "destination restaurants". I'm planning on visiting the Black Sheep Bistro in Vergennes VT soon. (No not my place ;-)) For I've heard many good things about the quality, menu, and consitancy. Any others out there worth a trip?
Thanks,
Jon

      1. I really like Cafe Shelburne in the village of Shelburne, VT http://www.cafeshelburne.com/

        Another place I would consider would be The Oregon Club in Ashland, MA http://www.oregonclub.com
        Website for Oregon Club wasn't working when I tried it, and I haven't been here in about a year.

          Thanks! I'll put the Cafe on my "to do" list.

        2. White Barn Inn in Kennebunkport is a true destination restaurant - reserve well in advance, dress nicely, and bring plenty of money.

          1. Melissa Kelly's restaurant Primo in Rockland Maine.
            James Beard winner - she had a great restaurant with her husband/pastry chef in Chatham NY . Old Chatham Sheepherding Co.
