Any word on Summer Winter (related to Arrows) in Burlington?

finlero Sep 5, 2007 10:53 AM

The Dining Out section of today's New York Times mentioned that Mark Gaier and Clark Frasier (of Arrows fame) have planted a year-round greenhouse for their new restaurant in Burlington, to be called Summer Winter. Anyone have any additional info?

    They're actively pursuing both wait staff and line cooks. It's going to be in the Marriott in Burlington. Scheduled to open in October. No idea where the greenhouse is slated to go. Maybe on one of the office parks' rooftops?

      I don't recall that Marriott being particularly luxurious (certainly not a dump, just kind of blah)...I wonder if this is this a down-market concept for them? Or perhaps the hotel has been remodeled in the past few years?

        I work down the street from the Marriott in Burlington. I was there for a conference about 9 months ago and it wasn't remodeled then. My first reaction is "huh"? I'd be really excited to see a relative of Arrows open up around here, but I can't picture it in the Marriott.

        I would like to nominate my office for the rooftop greenhouse though!

        Does anyone know if the Marriott has finished remodeling the restaurant where they served the Sat./Sun. brunch? It was way down on the left-hand side as you walk in the revolving doors.

        Summer Winter is opening at the Burlington Marriott and the greenhouse is located on the balcony. The restaurant will open at the end of the month.

          Does any one have recent news on the opening? The Marriott Burlington website still says opening in October.

            We were at Arrows Sunday night and I asked Clarke about it. He said it will open Nov. 1. I asked if it will be more like Arrows or MC Perkins Cove (less expensive and more casual). He said more like MC but then said not really like either-which leads me to believe the food will not be like either but it will be less expensive and more casual than Arrows. He said there is a greenhouse and an open kitchen, and that they will be serving lunch as well as dinner. I asked if they will be serving Thanksgiving Dinner and he said yes!

                  Haven;t tried it yet but Clarke Frasier,, one of the owners, told me it would be open for both lunch and dinner. You could call the Burlington Marriot to get the hours. Hope when someone goes they send a report.

                    The website is up with menus for both lunch and dinner. http://www.summerwinterrestaurant.com

                      Interestingly, the mains are a bit boring, but the small bites and appetizers look great. I wish the menu on the site had price-points though, I'd like to take some of my team members here for lunch. I guess I'll have to call to get those.

              I believe it is open for business...

                Any clue on prices, which are not listed in the online menu?
                Looks pretty upscale. I'm not about to walk in without any info on price range.
