When Seven Days last spoke to Chad Hanley, in 2010, the French-trained chef had recently returned to his native Jeffersonville after years cooking in the kitchens of Roy Yamaguchi and Masaharu Morimoto. Back then, a cooking gig at the Brewski wasn't making much use of Hanley's skills for haute cuisine. He'll need those refined touches when the Restaurant at Edson Hill, located at the newly reopened Stowe inn, debuts on Thursday, January 22. 

Hanley was already catering at the inn for previous owner Billy O'Neil, who sold the business last summer. New "head of estate" Carl Christian made major renovations in the fall, including a remade restaurant space.

Besides Hanley, the restaurant's team includes noted Vermont bartender and Sumptuous Syrups co-founder Don Horrigan. They'll preside over an elegant dining room and the more casual Tavern at Edson Hill, each serving what Hanley calls "a rustic New England take on food."
