Who doesn’t love a good meal, especially when it’s delicious? Last night the marketing team at Stratton got a chance to try out the new restaurant located in the Stratton Village, The Fire Tower Restaurant & Tavern (formally Organic Pizza Company).
If you were around at all this summer, you may have noticed some commotion in the village and a lot of it happening around what is now The Fire Tower. Owner, Peter Micioni, has created something that everyone is going to love. The atmosphere inside is cozy and relaxing yet upscale and modern. They are calling it “rustic Vermont meets urban chic.” It was great to see the locally milled timbers and barn board as well as hand blown glass lighting, which were created right in Manchester.
But the atmosphere isn’t the only great thing; the food was fantastic. Everyone was raving. From drinks to dessert, Fire Tower doesn’t miss a beat. I thoroughly enjoyed my quesadilla appetizer. Loaded with braised beef and a special sour cream, I couldn’t get enough. The jerk wings were also delicious. Served with a special dipping sauce that was the perfect mix of sweet and tangy. They than surprised us by bringing out pizza for us to sample. Again, it was awesome. For my entrée, I ordered what I like to call the best cut of pork I’ve ever had. It was cooked to perfection and topped with figs and apples.
They will be offering everything from soups and salads, to shrimp, chipotle glazed ribs, burgers and pizza. And let’s not forget about the bar. Topped with concrete and illuminated alabaster panels the bar was the place to be last night. They offer some of the most unique Vermont craft beer as well as wine from around the globe.
The official opening of The Fire Tower is tomorrow, Saturday, November 23. They will offer lunch at 11:30am, après at 2:30pm and dinner at 5pm. They will also offer carry out and delivery options in case you want to stay in after a hard day on the slopes.
Stop in and give The Fire Tower a try. You surely will not be disappointed.
