Dining With Us ~ The River Tavern
Annually the proud recipient of the Award of Excellence for our wine list
~Wine Spectator Magazine, since 2003
One of only four Vermont restaurants to be named in The Phantom Gourmet's Top 100 dining destinations for 2002.
Since its inception over fifteen years ago, The River Tavern Restaurant has developed a reputation for evoking the essence of elegant dining in a casual Vermont atmosphere. Award-winning Chef Marc Scott is acclaimed for his delectable, Regional New American and World Cuisine that blends seasonal and seemingly unlikely ingredients into harmonious combinations that delight both the most discriminating eye and seasoned palate. Fine wines from elite vineyards throughout the globe complement the distinctive presentation of each course.
Amidst The River Tavern's spectacularly beautiful mountain and river setting, dine in the warm glow of a roaring fire as you gaze out at the ice-encrusted Black River on a snowy winter's night. During warm summer evenings, alfresco dining on the Tavern deck or the pool terrace, under a star-studded Vermont sky, is the perfect close to the Resort's activity-filled days.
When Hawk was first established, Vermont was much ado about the basics - cheddar cheese, maple syrup, stuffed turkey and apple pie. Throughout the region, hearty country fare was simple and abundant. When it came to imagination, country diners accepted the premise that less was more and pronounced it enough. And then the great gourmet adventure came to rural New England. In the Hawk tradition of offering discriminating travelers something more, The River Tavern embraced this new popularity of culinary innovation. Today, the restaurant offers visitors to central Vermont some of the best dining available anywhere in the region.
The success enjoyed by The River Tavern is born of four essential elements. Quality, manifested through attention to detail. Creativity, fostered by an attitude of adventure. Versatility, expressed by a variety of styles and services. And beauty, evoked by an unusually picturesque country setting framed by walls of windows and enhanced by luxurious appointments. We hope you'll stop by soon and become acquainted with the talents of Chef Scott, while taking the time to enjoy the atmosphere of this charming restaurant set so romantically beside the Black River.
