I have so enjoyed writing about the restaurants in Chester because they are close by, easy to get to by simply walking from Inn Victoria. Alice’s Restaurant is eight doors down on the right, opposite the center of the green. The old Victorian is strikingly beautiful from the outside and offers a warm welcome to passerby’s. It is very well maintained and has an added glass enclosed – wrap around porch. Penny and I especially like the porch area because its fun to watch people walk by with a wishful look of jealousy in their eyes as we enjoy the perfect atmosphere and superb dinning.
I’ve attached a few photos so you can get a good perspective of Mark’s dream come true; his own special restaurant! We’ve enjoyed many a meal at Alice’s and each time I get a bowl of French Onion Soup….the best I’ve ever had anywhere! This is truly a fine dining atmosphere with the full menu creations to go with it.
Last night I broke tradition and ordered the black bean with smoked chicken and apple sausage soup as a starter. Penny ordered the French Onion Soup and was impressed as well. I savored my soup to the very last drop. Since I started with the special of the night, I thought I’d experiment and stick with the special entree as well; blackened salmon fillet with papaya citrus glaze and garlic dill sour cream…. Outstanding! Perfectly cooked salmon, very juicy and plenty of it.
My mom is coming down from Maine to visit next weekend and I am certain we’ll take another short stroll to Alice’s, just eight doors down on the right!
