Ample portions make many of the main courses sharable: house-made maccheroni with short-rib gravy ($9 small, $18 large); half an Amish chicken with carmelized-onion gravy, mashed potatoes, and rapini ($20); pork shank with cheddar grits and horseradish jus ($21). Add a side such as sautéed greens of the day or roasted-squash purée ($4 each) and you’re set. Or you can go the pizza route. The Vermont ($14) is a work of art with Cabot white cheddar, prosciutto, Granny Smith apples, sage, and caramelized onions.
