Burlington - Seeking dinner recommendations

Only have one night in Burlington. Need a delicious meal before moving on to poutine-centric rural Quebec. Not too expensive or formal, please. Thanks in advance for your advice.

  1. Pretty please. Anyone?


    1. Ma. or Vt.?? Might want to put that in your title. I don't know Vt. but Burlington Ma. has some options - Capital Grill just moved in recenlty but can be pricey.

      1. If you mean VT, do a search. It's been discussed before (and not that long ago).

        1. Vermont. My apologies. I will research previous posts.

            Beansie's Bus would be an infomal and inexpensive option.

              I'll second Beansie's, especially if you can get a nice table in the park on a sunny summer evening.

              There's a photo here:

              Part of the reason for no response may be that your question is pretty vague. Also, I think the general "Dinner rec for Burlington" has been covered pretty well here ..... If there's something more specific you're looking for, then we probably can be of more help.

              I'm not sure what you view as too expensive or formal but I'd recommend American Flatbread or the Daily Planet (haven't been there in a while). American Flatbread has expensive (15-20 for a bread that feeds 2) good flatbread with local ingredients when possible. Daily Planet is a solid moderately-priced restaurant usually with an interesting menu. There's also Single Pebble if you're looking for chinese. Some people rave about it, although I've never been a huge fan.

              If you're looking for someplace fairly unique to Burlington, I'd say go for American Flatbread (although Al's or Beansie's would fall into this category too ......).
