10 Places to Dine by the Water
Ruthcliffe Lodge & Restaurant
1002 Quarry Road
Isle La Motte, VT
A meal here is an Italian feast of locally grown vegetables and thoughtfully prepared meats and fish. Isle la Motte is a world away, right on Lake Champlain.
East Shore Road (Route 45)
New Preston, CT
We can’t get enough of the Bibb lettuce salad with pickled shallots, candied walnuts, poached pears, and piquant blue cheese, not to mention the backdrop of Lake Waramaug.
500 Steamboat Road
It’s French for “port of call,” and the upscale menu here, on Greenwich Harbor, takes its cue from Provence, with tasting menus of fruits de mer–raw clams and oysters, lightly poached shrimp, and mussels–and classic pissaladiere, a thin, flaky tart covered with silky onions, olives, and just enough anchovies.
