Bistro fare in Burlington Vermont?

Hi

Will be visiting from Montreal this weekend and would love suggestions for places to eat. Ideally, I would love to try out something charming, with bistro type fare and not too expensive (under $20). Nothing loud or boisterous, not a brew pub - something for the mid-40's crowd. The only food I don't eat is sushi.

Thanks for your ideas!

    OH, maybe Bluebird Tavern?

      Under $20 and bistro are a tricky combination. I don't think you will fill up at Bluebird on that.

      Try the Daily Planet. It has a lovely, serene main room and a nice range of prices/options... don't be put off by the loud website graphics.

      For something funkier there's Duino Duende. There's live music in the adjoining room so it can sometimes get loud but in a convivial (not drunken) way. The menu is 'international street food,' may or may not be what you're looking for.

      There's also the Skinny Pancake by the waterfront, a creative creperie, very casual, laid-back and cheap.
