Dinners near Burlington
So I got our lunches figured out, now it's dinner time.
We are staying in Williston at the Residence Inn...much cheaper than the original plan. So I'm thinking Williston, Essex, Burlington are our town options for dinner. We have two young boys.
If we have a cranky night, my plan is to get stuff at VT Meat and Seafood to grill at the hotel....as long as the grills look clean-ish. I guess the heat will kill anything gross.... Another cranky night option is rotisserie chicken from Hannaford with items from the salad bar.
For going out, I was thinking about Istanbul Kebab House and/or American Flatbread. Where else would you recommend that is family friendly?
Also, where do you go for sushi?
Definitely recommend Flatbread. I always see families with young kids there, and since it's a loud, bustling restaurant, tantrums generally go unnoticed! And of course, the pizza is delicious. Joyce's Noodle House in Essex Jct is quite good Chinese, inexpensive, casual. Sneakers in Winooski serves delicious dinner (and the best brunch in the area) thursday - saturday night and would be good for a family. Also, Pho Hong for great vietnamese. i'm not a sushi person so can't help you there. enjoy your time here!
We like the Hinesburgh Public House for a good meal out with the kids. Great local food. Great kids menu as well - no chicken finger type crappy food! Kids can get salmon, grilled chicken etc. About 10-15 minutes south of your hotel in Hinesburg. Make a reservation if you decide to go.
There is a newish flatbread pizza type restaurant in Williston-I have not been yet but friends have and they liked it. Its about a 1/2 mile from your hotel.
Don't do sushi so can't help there!
There's a sushi place, I can't ever remember the name of it, in the same shopping plaza as The 99 restaurant. They've got really good sushi. HAH, found my directions to it in an old thread: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/797300
So Sakura Sushi (or is it called Sushido?). http://www.yelp.com/biz/sushido-sushi... As with all yelp reviews, take with a grain of salt, but that's mostly to give you links to their phone number and directions, as they don't appear to have a website.
There's also Koto Steakhouse, I think they have Sushi. There's an Asian place in Winooski, I think it's Asian Gourmet, right in a building on the round about there, too.
If you want to stay close (Williston/Essex Jct./So. Burlington/HInesburg) here are my recs:
Williston: Natural Provisions (great selections of prepared foods and items you can cook), VT Meat and Seafood (Dana and Eric are great guys and they have the best wine selection in Williston), Garden of Eatin' (inside Gardener's Supply), Vermont Tap House (wide selection of beers)
Essex Jct. : Martone's (lunch or early dinner, great sandwiches)
So. Burlington: Pulcinella's (Italian food done right), Upper Deck Pub (family friendly sports pub)
Hinesburg: Good Times Café (family friendly place with pizza, salads, and Cajun influenced options.......owners Chris and Tracy are great folks)
