When we opened Hen of the Wood in October 2005. For me, it was the opportunity to put together a restaurant that would be the culmination of everything we had casually conceived for several years; a warm inviting atmosphere, a historic and visually appealing setting, seamless service and most importantly outstanding wine and beautiful food. For our team and our guests, it would be the beginning of a commitment to the amazing farmers, cheese makers, and others who make Vermont so special.
Will McNeill and I are proud of Hen of the Wood, Burlington in Hotel Vermont, affording us the opportunity to make what we do more accessible to visitors and the Community in Burlington. This opens up a whole new audience who might be inspired to search for their own local ingredients and flavors.
At Hen of the Wood, the food is simple, uncomplicated and down-to-earth. The uniqueness of our dishes comes from the depth of flavor found in each ingredient. Chef’s Jordan Ware and John David Palmer create menus based on the wealth of premium ingredients found only miles from the restaurant in the lush Green Mountains and Champlain Valley.
