Opened by chef Jon Fath, a 1995 graduate of the New England Culinary Institute, and his wife, Lucie Bolduc-Fath, this cozy little bistro offers Old World charm in downtown Richmond, just 20 minutes from Burlington. Fresh flowers on the table and soft candlelight create a romantic ambiance. The menu features rustic Mediterranean cuisine with fresh seafood and veal, fine Italian wines and Vermont microbrews. Appetizers include crab cakes with saffron aioli and Prince Edward Island mussels with white wine, plum tomatoes and basil. Entrees include wild mushroom ravioli with Gorgonzola sauce, grilled salmon with citrus buerre blanc and beef tenderloin with peppercorn demi. Soups and desserts, such as creme brulee and cappuccino chocolate mousse, are made in house. Open for lunch Tuesday through Saturday; dinner Tuesday through Sunday; brunch Sundays.
