The White Horse in Marbledale came highly recommended by Litchfield County foodies and the jam-packed crowd of guests who filled the restaurant on a sunny Saturday afternoon gave a good indication of the quality food that awaited. Everything here was across-the-board great: decor, service and of course, the delicious burgers.
I went with the Akaushi burger which for $13.75 gets you a generously portioned kobe-style beef patty with caramelized onions, sautéed mushrooms, poblano chillies and sriracha ketchup. It was unique burger with a bite (just one recommendation from the professional chef I was dining:: order them closer on the rare side). The plate presentation is also worth noting — a charming horse symbol comes seared on top of the brioche roll, just in case you could possibly forget where you were dining. —Rachel Louchen White Horse Country Pub and Restaurant Rt 202, Marbledale (860) 868-1496
