Way back when I started coming up to Blue Mountain, before the village, before the other restaurants lounging at the foot of the slopes, there was the Pottery. Long-time visitors will get the connection to the name—Blue Mountain Pottery was once a huge collectible and only made in this area.
Featuring understated elegance combined with a rustic charm (think central fireplace and hand-hewn roof beams), this the place my wife and I would visit when we were skiing up here and wanted that dinner just for two.
Nowadays it’s still just as appealing, and it's never too crowded because it’s a bit west of the main Village. Many regulars regard it as the best-kept secret at Blue.
Menu is seasonal and locally inspired. They call the Pottery casual dining but methinks they’re too modest—there's certainly nothing casual about a weekly highlight known affectionately as Prime Rib Sundays!
