- Grilled cheese at Picnic Social
Stowe's popular Picnic Social, the outdoorsy, casual restaurant at the Field Guide hotel on Mountain Road, will close on April 15, a representative from the restaurant said in an email earlier this week. The spot will reopen with a new concept — details TBD — later this year, before foliage season. Chef Justin Perdue, whose work has gleaned positive reviews in these pages and beyond, will still lead the kitchen, and the restaurant will continue to incorporate the location's ample outdoor space into its seating area.
