Richard Wilt, formerly of Roswell’s Inc. Street Food and Salt Factory has opened up a fantastic new restaurant in Woodstock called Century House Tavern. Century House Tavern is located in historic downtown Woodstock. The historic home was once known as the Hubbard House, built in 1894 and occupied until 2004. They’ve done an excellent job fusing the modern touches while keeping the historic look of the house.
The menu is divided into bites / charcuterie, soups/ salads, small plates, sandwiches and mains. We started with a crispy bacon with soy glaze. The salty bacon mixes nicely with the slightly sweet soy chili sauce. There’s also a charcuterie plate, great for sharing. With a mix of quality meats, local and Italian cheeses and pickled vegetables it is another starter perfect for sharing.
The three soups offered (Lobster, onion and creamy mushroom) are equally tasty. The lobster, with a spicy chili oil was quite filling. However, the wild mushroom soup with a slight creaminess would be my go to soup on a cold winter day.
Small plates average $9 each, but are quite generous portions. The Skirt Steak Skewers are served with herbed fries. The Scallops were the best dish we sampled, served over parsnip puree with braised greens, bacon and a truffle foam.
Do save room for the chocolate cake. The huge slice could easily be shared by three or four. Unfortunately, reservations are not accepted at Century House Tavern.
