This coming Monday 4/20 Montreal based chef Jean Michel Leblond, aka. John Mike of Tripes and Caviar is teaming up with our good friends from Hen of the Wood, Jordan Ware, John David Palmer, and Andrew LeStourgeon, to bring a cocktail paired multi coursed extravaganza to Hen of the Wood in Waterbury. The secret menu promises to wow all who attend. Tripes and Caviar has a unique and daring philosophy on food…
“ Tripes & Caviar is a Club open to all where members are encouraged to exchange with each other but also has a very specific educative purpose, directly related with food transformation/consumption each day. Honestly, we like to transform parts of the animal that are most of the time frowned upon and even thrown away. We cook them our way. With passion, tender love and care.”
Seating at the intimate dining room at Hen of the Wood Waterbury is extremely limited but there are plans for future Tripes and Caviar events in Vermont, and perhaps NYC. Also it is worth a drive north of the border to check them out.
We have been getting a ton of calls lately inquiring about Hen of the Wood Burlington, so we thought we would do a Hen Burlington FAQ.
1) When will Hen of the Wood be open?
Anticipated Opening: Last week of September/first week of October. Subject to change.
2) Is Hen of the Wood part of Hotel Vermont?
While we have partnered with Hen of the Wood on location, they are a separate entity from Hotel Vermont. Additionally, Hen of the Wood and Hotel Vermont are not physically connected, meaning that you have to enter Hen through the entrance on Cherry Street. Our restaurant, Juniper, is located in the hotel and is currently open for breakfast, dinner and late night drinks.
3) Is Hen serving breakfast/brunch?
Right now they will just be serving dinner and drinks, opening at 5pm daily.
Hen is not currently taking reservations for the Burlington location. If you would like to make a reservation for their Waterbury location, you can contact them directly at 802-244-7300.
5) Will hotel guests get priority reservations?
Unfortunately at this time we can’t promise priority reservations to any guests.
