Crystal chandeliers hang from 19th century rafters and candles cast light on long banquet tables. In winter, an open-hearth fireplace warms the main room. Chefs make all of the sauces, breads, and desserts from scratch and support small farms by purchasing local, organic ingredients whenever possible. Start with locally made artisanal cheeses, Vermont cured meat, and farm fresh veggies. Then, move on to try a reasonably priced New England classic like the Cavendish Farms Quail or Wood Creek Farm Burger. Conveniently located in Warren, Vermont, between Sugarbush’s Lincoln Peak and Mount Ellen, The Common Man is a must-stop for your ski weekend with the family, or your significant other. Rent the whole place out for a big event, or reserve a cozy table for two.
