Dinner in Burlington VT

Heading to Burlington VT for a college visit with my daughter, where is good for an evening meal?

  1. Ugh! Burlington! I have had such bad luck with meals there. I found a Mexican place (tex/mex, really) called Roques, near the waterfront, to be pretty good. Everything was fresh, and service very good both times I was there.

    1. My list for the next time I get to Burlington contains a single entry:

      1. You don't mention a price range for what you'd like so I'll offer up some suggestions.

        Expensive but really great italian:
        L'Amante and Trattoria Delia

        Decent Mexican, mid-range prices:

        Brazillian Rodizio style grill ($30/person, all you can eat):

        Low-mid range good pizza joint and restaurant:
        Juniors (in Colchester, haven't heard good things about the Downtown location yet). They have a finer dining side and a pizza place side, and they make their own, very good, desserts

        Asian, mid-range prices:
        A Single Pebble (I haven't eaten there since they were in Barre, but others recommend them still so I'm adding them to the list)

        Asian Bistro in Williston (Maple Tree Place I think is where it's located)

        1. I believe Souzas is still closed due to water damage. I would also say A Single Pebble, but I'm totally biased because I work there. If I were coming up with a teenager though I would go to American Flatbread, it's laid back, has great food, good atmosphere ( loud but nice) and gives you a good little look into the what life is like in Burlington. I would do Penny Cluse for lunch or breakfast. both places have a waitlist so go before you're starving. Have fun.

            I second American Flatbread. Great food with quality ingredients, more uniquely Burlington than the other restaurants mentioned. I'd also recommend the Daily Planet. Fairly innovative menu generally and good food.

              Just went to A Single Pebble this last weekend, and the two meals we had (Emporer's Beef and a Tea-Smoked Duck special) were extremely good and well-prepared. I was very satisfied.
