Heating up the CT food scene with mountain-side fare.
. A sophisticated dining experience with crafted dishes inspired by native New England flavors with an updated twist and Ridgeside Tavern for more casual dining, craft beers, and cocktails.
The centerpiece of the dining experience at Powder Ridge Mountain Park & Resort in Middlefield, CT is the sophisticated yet approachable dining experience "Fire at The Ridge". Fire at the Ridge aims to be an escape for diners, offering private dining rooms and breathtaking views of the mountain from the upper-levels of the newly renovated 20,000 square foot base lodge. Crackling bon fires and the aroma of fine fare will set the mood for locals and travelers alike to enjoy the handcrafted dishes by Executive Chef Kevin Cottle. Inspired by native New England flavors and locally-sourced ingredients, Fire at the Ridge is a place you would expect to stumble upon while exploring Boston’s South End rather than tucked away in the hills of Middlefield. “That’s what makes Fire at the Ridge so unique,” says Chef Cottle. “We’re providing guests with a sophisticated yet approachable experience in a relaxed and familiar setting.” Kevin, Well-known in the Connecticut food scene and for his appearances on Hell’s Kitchen and Food Network is returning to his Cape Cod roots, “My goal is to guide a guest through a natural progression of flavors and textures using locally-grown products. It should be a simple experience, never over-barring or over-complicated.” In addition to Fire at the Ridge, the newly renovated lodge will be home to The Ridgeside Tavern. Locals have long known the bar at Powder Ridge to be the place to meet up with friends and for creating new friendships that last a lifetime. The Ridgeside Tavern will serve locally-brewed beers and craft cocktails along with more casual dishes.
Situated on 225 acres, Powder Ridge offers a year-round scenic location and is ideal for weddings, corporate events and family celebrations.
Ridgeside Tavern is now open for lunch Saturdays & Sundays noon - 10 pm. Happy Hour Wed. - Friday 5 - 7 pm
