Montpelier, VT dining

Does anyone have a recommendation for a good steak place in or around Montpelier, VT? Also, Sarduccis has been suggested for good Italian - - any feedback? Many thanks for any help!

  1. I can't tell you much about Montpelier except the casual places La Brioche, Capitol Grounds and Coffee Corner. All good for a quick bite. There's a little bit of info here:

    1. Personally I don't like Sarduccis. I find the food bland, salty, and the restaurant gets very noisy. I have no idea where to find good steak in Montpelier, and I live here! Morgan's do a good middle of the road burger, and surprisingly some nice pizzas. My top place to go would be the Thai on Elm Street -- the best food in town. Walk further down Elm St. to Gesine's -- the best coffee and baked goods. Puts all the other coffee houses in the shade.

        1. Thanks for your feedback. The menu for Sarduccis looked uninspired, which is why I inquired. Any experience with NECI Chef's Table?

          1. Montpelier is mostly a restaurant wasteland. Chef's Table for a steak? Maybe, though I'd doubt they serve it up in classic style, they'd likely give it some sort of a nouveau spin.

            And like all NECI restaurants, the service unfortunately generally comes with an insufferable snob attitude from the student waitstaff.
