Annual Burlington Visit- Seeking 5 Excellent Dinners

opinionatedchef | Oct 2, 2011 01:11 AM

We come up from boston every fall at least. i feel so happy when we reach Vt. Hardly any recent CH posts on Burlington; the recession keeping things quiet on the food scene? A fav spot of ours, Green Room, is closed i see. We will return to consistently v. good Delia; last yr we had 2 dinners there. Bluebird looks promising. Not A Single Pebble fan(too expensive imo) but we had an excellent Thai meal at Drunken Noodle 2 yrs ago.

Farmhouse menu looks like a burger lunch maybe. What about Duende and El Gato?Does Duende still have the chef mentioned in the 7 Days a Week review?Any fav dishes? El Gato has very polarized reviews on 7 Days. How's Church and Main these days? At Kitchen Table and Hen in the Woods I have had mixed reactions over the years. Didn't care for the Frog place or the casual spot a few doors down. Liked The Black Sheep a few yr ago but not Starry Night the last time, 2 yrs ago. We adore Penny Cluse for its Mex. slanted specials,and Mirabelle's for croissants.Never have tried Sneakers. Plse share your thoughts! And thanks very much for your help.
