Voted Best New England Restaurant, Best Service, and Most Romantic Restaurant by Valley Advocate, Chandler's Restaurant bursts with a spectacular array of traditional New England surf ‘n’ turf. Dinner diners can ease into a seasonal menu with the local-goat-cheese plate, featuring toasty doubloons of crostini, augmented with caramel apple, fruit preserve, and walnut pesto ($12). Culinary artists bind a variety of locally sourced produce and meats into miraculous entree options, which include traditional New England bouillabaisse ($30), a miniature ocean of tomato, saffron, and butter broth, dotted with islands of clams and mussels, and lapping at a golden garlic-toast shore, where a fresh fillet of fish basks, slathered in lobster aioli. Lunching mouths can discuss the benefits of collecting cocktail umbrellas while tasting the menu's BBC beer-battered fish ‘n’ chips ($14.50) or an armada of sandwiches, from the Pilgrim, a mound of roast turkey breast festooned with sage dressing and cranberry sauce ($9), to the house-smoked pastrami reuben ($10.50).
Chandler's Restaurant's rustic, candlelit, exposed-wood spread is decorated with vases of flowers, and looks out onto immaculately groomed grounds.
