Six Main, Chester
Published: 06/11/2012 by
I’m no vegan, but I’m a big fan of vegan restaurants. It takes imagination and skill to construct a varied menu from mainly plants and I’m always intrigued. Especially since most restaurants on the Shoreline will hand you a pile of pasta when asked for a veggie plate. While I’m not convinced that the teeny town of Chester deserves another top notch restaurant (really, spread the love!), the new Six Main, in the renovated Chester Bank, is a welcome addition. We went on the very first night and devoured a grilled watermelon salad (yum), hummus with made-to-order focaccia (delish) and a bowl of spicy cucumber noodles (surprisingly filling). Carnivores in your crowd will be happy with the Seitan Steak au Poivre, served with a stack of potatoes au gratin and micro greens. Most of the produce is grown on their very own farm in Lyme, there's parking in the back and an interesting menu of fresh cocktails including a Watermelon Martini and Blackberry Collins. Good to know: Six Main is vegetarian and vegan, some dairy is used in a few dishes and is specified on the menu.
