logo-michaelsLovely setting on the hill. Friendly service and a sophisticated menu with European flair. Chef owned and Vermont Restaurateur of the Year for 2012.

Idletyme Brewing Company

Excellent casual dining that is now under the ownership and direction of Michael Kloti, owner of Michael’s on the Hill.  In the summer they have an attractive dining patio with lots of space and good food.  Located within a mile of Stone Hill and next door to Piecasso.  Commitment to quality food mirrors Michael’s on the Hill, as expected.  New challenger to Flannel for best crab cakes in Stowe.  Dress is typical Stowe — very casual/comfortable.  Reservations accepted.
