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. The menu changes seasonally with emphasis upon local (strong farm-to-table presence) and seasonal ingredients. Michael’s (owner and chef) tasting menus and wine pairings are also available. Tables on the enclosed “porch” offer views of the sun setting over the mountains. Smart/casual. Reservations recommended. Closed Tuesdays. It’s worth the 15-minute drive. 802-244-7476

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.  A new challenger to Flannel for best crab cakes in Stowe.  Dress is typical Stowe — very casual/comfortable.  Reservations accepted.


Pizza, pasta, salads, Paninis, and subs in a very casual contemporary setting.  Recommend you create your own pizza from their list of additions.  We like a half-dozen extras — all vegetables.  Excellent!  Salads are very good — we often add a fillet of Salmon or Chicken.  Eat-in, take-out, or delivery.  Just one mile away. No reservations accepted. Often serve until 11 pm.  802-253-441
