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