NE Vermont - Quality Dinner & birthday celebration

We are looking for a couple of enjoyable meals (or more) NE of Montpelier. We will probably be in/around Hardwick, and are ready to drive.
Thanks for your thoughts.

          We were there Saturday night and it was amazing. We shared the bowl of spicy corn soup, which had roasted corn, tomatoes, leeks, and crispy sage leaves. The flavors and textures were amazing. The sweetness of the corn was bursting through the soup. For our entree, we had the crispy pork belly... slowed cooked to perfection and seared on the outside for a perfect crust.

          I wish I lived closer so I could enjoy Claire's more often.
