Summary: Locally sourced fare in a rustic mill setting.

Hen of the Wood offers a unique dining experience in a refurbished grist mill, celebrating the essence of country living with its rustic elegance. The restaurant's dedication to local sourcing is evident, with a focus on Vermont's meats and produce, complemented by a wine collection from organic, family-owned producers. The daily-changing menu features a variety of small and large plates, including beef tartare and rabbit leg, as well as homemade desserts like ice cream and sorbet. While the Waterbury location boasts a woodsy-chic interior and a cozy atmosphere, Hen of the Wood also operates a second venue in Burlington, providing a similar menu but with a different ambiance.
