Just had dinner here on Monday night. Great experience. Hands down the best dining experience I have ever had in New England ski country.

Nice wine list, well priced, great crative menu. A WINNER!!

  1. My family and I were there about 6 months ago and it had only been open for about that long. The location has had some problems, so I hope it is able to hang on. The owners are very nice people and very talented, and there aren't a lot of choices for that level of fine dining in the area.

    1. Tito, I'm so glad you enjoyed it. My husband and I are big fans.

      1. We ate at SoLo this evening after a day of leaf peeping. The food was tremendous and the price was really reasonable for the quality of food and service. We started out sharing an appetizer, the "Autumn Vegetable Salad Local Kale and Fall Lettuces, Caramelized Apples and Sweet Onions, with Woodcock Farm's "Summer Snow" and Lemon Vinaigrette." It was delicious and beautifully prepared. I've uploaded a picture of it here. The onion was grilled and on the bottom with the kale and lettuces on top. The dressing was a liquid sheep's milk cheese on the bottom of the bowl. Very nice with the hearty salad.

        My husband and I then shared two pasta dishes:
        Homemade Spaghetti Vongole Clams, Garlic Scapes, Artichokes, and White Wine with Chili Flakes
        and
        Lamb Bolognese Homemade Spaghetti, Lamb Sausage, Fresh Peas & Garden Mint

        Both dishes were spicy and very good. The pasta is made in-house and you can tell it is really fresh. It was cooked perfectly. Both dishes were rich without being heavy. My husband had a pinot noir with his dish and I had a sauvignon blanc with mine. Good choices for both dishes.

        We ended the meal with a chocolate/banana concoction. Banana bread soaked in rum with homemade marshmallow and a scoop of the darkest densest chocolate ice cream I'd ever seen. On the side were carmelized bananas. Delicious with coffee.

        We were given an amuse-bouche to start out - raw mackerel with marinated carrot and horseradish sauce. After dessert there were homemade caramels dipped in chocolate. A perfect meal beginning to end.

        We would highly recommend it and are not at all surprised it was nominated for one of the best new restaurants of the year by Bon Appetit.

        (Meant to upload a photo. Will do that next.)

        1. Here are a couple of photos. The first is of the salad and the second of the vongole pasta.

           
           
          1. if a couple were to visit solo for dinner, what would be an ideal town to look for lodging for the night? i don't know that area well and would like to make a weekend out of our meal.

            thanks.

              We were staying in Woodstock, which is a good hour away. That may be too far for you. We loved Woodstock. It's a great town and there are a couple of very good restaurants there as well.

                jeez...we go to woodstock a lot...that seems pretty far.

                i figured bennington is an area i stay in once in awhile but that seems like an hour away as well. don't really feel like driving in woodlands after a bottle of wine.

                We stayed in Chester, about 20 mins drive away. There are a bunch of B&Bs there, found Stone Hearth Inn on Booking.com, it was decent. Supposedly pretty good food there too, the breakfast was fine but nothing fancy.
