Multi-course dinner at chef Rogan Lechthaler’s home, the Old Tavern Farm for four (4) people

Let The Downtown Grocery treat you to a quintessential New England experience.

In downtown Ludlow, Vermont, chef Rogan Lechthaler’s acclaimed restaurant offers farm to table cuisine plus unique cocktails and a wonderful, relaxed ambiance. Four people will enjoy dinner with wine pairings and a luscious packed picnic lunch to sustain you in grand style on an outdoor adventure the next day.

Chef Rogan Lechthaler honed his eclectic culinary skills in many several fine restaurants from Boston to Mississippi and now specializes in using local, seasonal ingredients. The chef makes his own pastas, sources fresh, sustainable seafood and cures his own meats in the cellar beneath his inaugural casual fine-dining eatery, and his seasonal, regional cooking has been featured in many prestigious publications.
A highlight of this fabulous foodie lot will be a multi-course dinner for four at the Old Tavern Farm, the home of chef Rogan Lechthaler and his wife Abby. Built in 1776, it’s a charming spot for a fun and creative tasting menu, each course paired with unusual wines. You’ll be just as delighted with the gorgeous views of Stratton Mountain, the gardens and bocce court.

Winning bidder can hand-select wines from The Downtown Grocery cellar if they choose or have co-owner Abby Lechthaler select for them.
