"Avenue Bistro" is one of those places you drive by and wonder what if ...
Luckily I was in town for work, snowed in, and this restaurant sort of adopted me. The owner and her lovely staff treated me as if I was their oldest / dearest customer so I returned and returned. The breakfasts alone were a reason for being. The flavors one associates with a childhood in New England infuse every pancake / French Toast and omelet. Lunch was transcendent as well, as a simple salad exploded with nuance of flavors. The freshness in every meal was palpable. I tend to judge every restaurant by their chicken dishes, as it is a difficult dish to make stand-out but Avenue Bistro seems to give every tiny aspect of their menu an obsessive care, and I was simply thrilled at their food. I can still taste their eggplant which like their pasta was perfectly al dente . Were I living in their neighborhood I would NEVER leave! Also if Vermont allowed bigamy, I would marry the entire staff.
What a pleasure it was to stop my car, and remember how food used to taste, courtesy of the "Avenue Bistro".
