I need ideas for New Years Eve Dinner in Burlington, VT

I'll be in Burlington New Years Eve weekend and would love a couple of ideas of where to eat. Any suggestions?

  1. Are you looking for formal or casual? My recommendations would be Farmhouse Tap & Grill, Bluebird Tavern or L'amante. All are downtown and popular.

    Keep in mind that Burlington has a First Night event so parking is usually a mess on NYE.

      I guess more casual. We're headed to Higher Ground for a concert at 8 and would like to grab a bite to eat before hand.

        If you're going to Higher Ground you might try the chinese place right next door. I think it's called Silver Palace, maybe? I liked it! :)

          This is easy: go to the Clover House in Colchester. Seriously. Wonderful food. We won't be here for NYE, but if we were, that's where we'd be.

            Yeah, Silver Palace. We went for lunch on Saturday while we were up in the area doing our monthly shopping. I needed to get some things at Gagan market. I know I know I can make my own paneer, but I work full time, darnit! ;) I came out and my husband said wryly, "That doesn't look like just sesame seeds" (which was the ostensible reason for going). I can't ever come out of there with just one thing. :) So we had lunch there after hitting Gagan. :)

            Silver Palace is great. There is a new restaurant right in front of Higher Ground called Wooden Spoon Bistro. I enjoyed my meal there but it seems a bit inconsistent. Again, it just opened in September or thereabouts.
