Plan on beginning and ending your day at The Ruffed Grouse. Start with a La Colombe espresso and house-made pastries in the morning, and after a full day of activity, wind down with a nightcap in the main dining room and lounge, where a wood-burning fire crackles and pops in the background. A well-edited wine list focused on biodynamic, organic wines from small, family-run vineyards, a rotating selection of regional beers, and classic cocktails (Try the Old Pal) round out The Ruffed Grouse’s robust beverage program.
