Don't miss out on these hidden gems!

What's cooking at The Homestead...
Mexican Street Pizza image
Mexican Street Pizza
This dish. Ohh, this dish!
Its menu description does not do it justice.
"Chargrilled flour tortilla, queso Oaxaca, Vermont cheddar, Monterey jack, melted and finished with lime crema and pico de gallo"

It's our Mexican Street Pizza, and it is an unassuming option nestled in the middle of our regular lunch menu. You've probably passed it over without much of a thought. But give it a thought next time. It's cheesy, it's crunchy, it's deliciously savory and surprisingly light. Almost like one big nacho but better. And the black beans it's served with are the perfect complement. It's a must try. And then a must have... again and again and... (you get the point here!)
Rustica image
Ziti, Local Sausage, and Peppers Rustica
Another unassuming, must-try dish, this time from our dinner menu, is our Ziti, Local Sausage, and Peppers Rustica.

It's a delicious, warm, comforting, cheese-topped pile of pasta and sausage goodness, baked right in the serving plate! 

We all love the exciting specials, but lets not let these hidden gems, that are on our regular menus, go unnoticed and unappreciated. They, too, will knock your socks off!

Two NEW appetizers!

What's cooking at The Homestead...
Crispy Beef image
Crispy Beef appetizer

We are excited to present you with two new appetizers this week!

Our Crispy Beef is panko breaded local beef tenderloin that gets pan fried, then sliced, and then the slices get fried again to make this deliciously crispy appetizer. 
It's served with gochujang-unagi sauce, sesame seeds, julienned greed apple, fried leeks and cilantro.

If you like spicy, crispy, delicious beef slices... this is for you!
Smoked Chicken Wings

Then there's the amazing Smoked Chicken Wings. Why are they amazing? Well, it starts with local Pine Tree Poultry chicken wings which get brined overnight in a juniper brine, they're then smoked right here, deep fried to order, and finally smothered in a most delicious Alabama white BBQ sauce. 

White BBQ sauce?! You read that right. It's a superb, tangy sauce made with mayo, dijon and spicy brown mustards, vinegar, and horseradish. That, combined with the smokey flavor, make these wings truly memorable and a must-try!

The Crispy Beef is already available, and the Smoked Chicken wings will be available sometime this coming week.

Did you know?

What's cooking at The Homestead...
Chicken Adobo Burrito image
Chicken Adobo Burrito
Fun fact: "Burrito" means little donkey in spanish. 

Why, exactly, did this famous dish get that as its name? There are many stories as to how the name burrito came about, but there doesn't seem to be evidence to back any of them.

Regardless of where the name came from, these little (and by little we mean not-at-all-little) delicious tortilla pockets of food are immensely popular and super versatile. 

These days, what fills them often crosses cultural boundaries, like our own Chicken Adobo Burrito, which is filled with Filipino style adobo local chicken, garlic fried rice, tomato, onion, and cilantro, served with black beans, guacamole, pico, and shredded lettuce. 

So, while we may not know where such an odd name came from, we do know that you can't go wrong when you order a burrito!

Available on both our lunch and dinner menus

A Salad and a Burger

What's cooking at The Homestead...
Apple Cranberry Salad
Apple Cranberry Salad

Our Apple Cranberry Salad is refreshingly sweet with spicy undertones...

Delicious mixed greens tossed with chipotle maple vinaigrette, topped with local apples, dried cranberries, candied pecans, and crumbled gorgonzola, it's available in two sizes, both during lunch and dinner on our regular menus.
Bistro Burger image
Bistro Burger

Our burgers are made from grass fed, local Black Acres Farm beef, served with French fries.

The Bistro Burger gets a little more gussied up than others with fig jam, prosciutto, Vermont chevre, lemony arugula. It's quite the delight, and is available during lunch on our regular menu.

You can also substitute the burger on any of our burgers for grilled chicken or a house-made black bean patty

From Italy to India

From Italy...
Pappardelle alla Bolognese India
Chicken Korma
At this point, it probably goes without saying that we, at The Homestead, love foods from all over the world; from the traditionally familiar Italian pastas, which have long been incorporated into American culture, like our Pappardelle alla Bolognese, to the more traditionally exotic Eastern fares, which have gained much popularity in recent decades, like our Chicken Korma.

We love it all. 
All the different flavors... all the different tones and nuances that different combinations of spices give to different dishes... all the possibilities that exist when you open yourself, even a little bit, to all the different culinary experiences that all the different cultures of the world have to offer... we think it's all quite exciting, to put it mildly!

So, come out and celebrate this world's beautiful culinary diversity with us. Whether you go more for the traditionally familiar, or prefer the traditionally exotic, you can bet we've got something for you!

You get a nice cauliflower steak, seared in olive oil with lemon and thyme, served with cauliflower puree, wild porcini mushroom demiglace, marcona almond romesco, and roasted vegetables.

Hearty. Huge. Heavenly.

Roasted Vegetable, Havarti, and Gouda
It's filled to brim with Brussels sprouts, carrots, squash, and onions, all roasted and glazed with an apple cider reduction, slices of Havarti and smoked Gouda cheeses, and then it's pressed and grilled between two glorious slices of multigrain bread... pair it with a soup, and there's your perfect lunch right there.

You don't have to be a vegetarian to fall in love with this sandwich!

It's our Roasted Vegetable, Havarti, and Gouda
