FARM TO TABLE DINING IN THE KINGDOM
Choices abound for a quick bite or fine dining!
Whether you're looking for a casual lunch or a romantic dinner, the options abound in the Kingdom for great dining with lots of locally produced foods on the menu.  A great place to check out after a busy day on the slopes of Jay is Tastings Food &Spirits in nearby Troy.  This chef owned restaurant offers a full bar and menu choices including the Kingdom Angus Burger, Crab Stuffed Rainbow Trout and Misty Knoll Chicken.  For simpler pleasures like pizza and beer, stop into Trout River Brewery on the weekends for hand-tossed sourdough pizza and beer selections only available at the brewery.
