Heading to South Hero for annual vacation next month. What's new in the foodie world that I should check out since last year?
Hen of the Wood in Burlington. It is spectacular. Just went the other night and had and can recommend: parker house rolls, smoked bluefish, grilled octopus, little gem salad, green beans, mushroom toast with farm egg, chard, panisse frites (all small plates) and the zucchini large plate (kind of a small portion, but still delicious). And the crushed potatoes with tarragon aioli - we had to order a refill, they were so tasty.
You can make a reservation online but it might be fun to sit at the kitchen bar and observe. I was at a table but with a great view of the kitchen and it was mesmerizing.
