Twin Farms has long been known as a luxury culinary destination in Barnard, Vermont. But, the food and beverage offerings recently got better with the new Twiggs restaurant—the Farm’s first new restaurant since it opened 30 years ago.
Already celebrated for its overall culinary program, Twin Farms is known for providing a menu-less dining experience fully customizable to each guest. Now, guests of the adults-only, all-inclusive property can dine in a new setting—named after Twin Farms’ founder Thurston Twigg-Smith— for the first time since the hotel opened its doors. And it is complementary to the Farm’s sole dining room in the Main House, both of which are overseen by Relais & Châteaux Chef Nathan Rich.
The introduction of Twiggs ushers in a new era for distinctive culinary experiences at the storied New England establishment. Consisting of a bar, lounge, and dining area, it is a place to spend the entire day inside and out, and the interior design reflects this. The new dining room, formerly known as Twiggs Pub, was completely redesigned by renowned architects and interior designers Michaelis Boyd and TruexCullins (who are behind some of the world’s most acclaimed travel destinations like Soho Farmhouse).
Visitors may easily go from indoors to outdoors thanks to the feeling of mobility, whether this is done practically or metaphorically. Design features intentionally incorporate Twiggs’ natural surroundings so that visitors can experience the outside inside. For example, the hand-painted wall covering’s design is meant to mimic light passing through leaves.
Moreover, Alexandrita Quartzite, a stone with semi-transparent properties, was used to make the green tabletops in the eating area. This stone was specifically chosen to depict the Farm’s lily pond and beyond, simulating the “layered” sensation of looking down to the lily pond from the Bridge above when arriving at Twiggs, the most iconic Twin Farms scene.
Arguably the best seat in the house, the 14-seat bar offers guests the chance to soak up this scene while participating in wine tastings and other immersive experiences. Unlike other bars designed to be pre-dinner stopovers, the Twiggs Bar was meant for guests to take their time and settle in. From the large chair design to the chosen leathers, The Bar can be the first, last, or all-night stop. In addition, the bar’s countertop is made of soapstone, a natural and durable material that ages gracefully over time.
Of course, Twin Farms has always been dedicated to sustainability and preserving the surrounding area’s natural beauty. The new Twiggs is no exception, as the architects and interior designers have emphasized sustainable design. The farm-to-table ethos is reflected in every aspect of the restaurant, from the locally sourced ingredients.
“We’re so proud to open the doors to this project that we’ve been working hard on behind the scenes for the past two years,” Managing Director John Graham said in a statement. “Over the years, we’ve introduced new and creative ways to dine on property, from the various picnic sites we’ve built to the Progressive Farm Lunch we recently introduced. Twiggs is something completely new, and we can’t wait to share this experience with our guests, friends, and family.”
