The Downtown Grocery - Ludlow, VT
What happens when a Vermont raised chef marries a food-loving Southern gal? They open up a restaurant, of course. At the Downtown Grocery, chef Rogan Lechthaler—whose pedigree includes Boston’s Mistral and Blackberry Farm in Tennessee—turns out impeccable, ingredient- inspired fare while his wife oversees the front-of house with her signature charm.
