Gaze out the window at Norma’s over large reflecting pools dwarfed by the sprawling Green Mountains. Inside, the wicker furniture and oversized white plates have a simple, yet artistic allure. Chef Mark Timms prides himself on a contemporary menu inspired by local Vermont fare, and flavorful, high quality ingredients. Start with the Crispy Calamari ($14), or Dueling Gazpacho’s with Vermont-grown red and yellow sweet tomatoes ($10). Delve into Norma’s extensive steak or seafood menu for your main course. Finish with a slice of warm chocolate truffle cake accompanied by a specialty coffee or dessert wine.
