WOW….What a meal!…and the atmosphere was so relaxing and fun! Penny, Rachel and I took the night off to celebrate 200 Excellent Tripadvisor reports! So we took the advice of so many of our guests who know the area well; we went to Leslie’s Tavern just off I 91 North, ten miles from Inn Victoria Chester Vermont on Rt # 103 Exit 6 off I 91.
We had a great time; as you see we also needed our designated driver, Rachel! I ordered a shrimp thai stir fry and a cup of lobster stew. I love lobster stew and the best I’ve found anywhere is at the Jordan Pond House at Acadia National Park in Maine….until tonight! WOW!….if you like lobster, this is it! The Thai stir fry was perfect, not too spicy yet enough to awaken the taste buds. Penny ordered the NY Sirloin (medium well), I held my breath thinking shed get a hockey puck. It was PERFECT! She was thrilled. I have no idea how one can cook a steak to a medium well, and still have it juicy. And of course Rachel ordered the chicken; she was so thrilled there was none left for me to snack on!
Dessert? well….you’ll just have to look at the platter of choices…and yes we each had our own! No sharing tonight.
We just love this place. The atmosphere was relaxing and friendly. We ate in one of the three dining rooms, each with its own decor. Leslie is very enthusiastic about her business, and is an all around bubbly personality; so much so, you’ll walk in being greeted by a great smile and walk out feeling like you’ve just made a new best friend.
We were fortunate to have Ashton waiting on us, her charm and poise was refreshing. Her attention to detail was noticed & appreciated.
Check out Leslie’s Tavern even if you are simply driving past the exit on the highway. Take time to check it out. This will definitely be one of many trips for us!
Oh, and by the way……there is a lot more to check out in Leslie’s kitchen store and cooking classes.!!
Cheers from Vermont’s Best Rated Romantic B&B, Inn Victoria.
