Night Out In Burlington

s

I'll be up in the Burlington area next week and am looking for some advice on where to get good- but not too 'upscale'- food AND drinks. I'll be taking someone else out and want to stay at least somewhat casual.

Here's where I'm at in my chowhound investigation so far.....

There is a bunch of conflicting reviews over the Bluebird Tavern. Has anyone been there recently?

I'm also looking at Daily Planet - which seems to have a nice menu and has gotten positive feedback - as well as The Farmhouse Tap & Grill. Thoughts? The Green Room?

Somewhere else?

Any advice will be AWESOME.

Thanks.

    Trattoria Delia, on Saint Paul just south of Main (around the corner from the Flynn Theatre entrance) is still my favorite restaurant of all time. I left Burlington in 2006, and I miss going there more than any of my regular haunts...except maybe Cheese Traders on Williston Road (discount/overstock wine shop).
    Burlington is definitely a "dress-down" city- casual will work just about anywhere, including TD.
    Call ahead if you want to guarantee yourselves a table during "peak" hours. The room can get crowded, but it's never especially loud.

      Thanks for the advice. I'll give it a shot for sure. Any particular dishes you remember especially fondly?

        Just close your eyes and point. You really can't go wrong...although I admit that I've had at least one dream about the Filetto.

        If you do end up going, be sure to post a quick recap (or at least a thumbs up/down)!

      Just a note, I know you mean Vermont because of the Bluebird tavern reference, but it's a good idea to mention the state you mean in your subject. This board is all over Northern New England and all of the states it covers have Burlingtons. :)

        Yea. Probably should have mentioned Vermont in there somewhere.

        Meh.
