Spent last week in Southern Vermont. We(my wife & I) have been taking this trip in October for 6 years. The best restaurant we ate at was "DJs in Ludlow. Big portions, fair prices and very good quality. The blackened Salmon was especially excellent, served medium with spicey crust. The duck was very tastey, served with bing cherry sauce. We shared a strwbrry sundae for dessert and it was great.
A new restaurant Bella Luna was a delight. The Italian food was great though I would stay away from the other food on the menu.
Lunch was particularly good at The Pot Belly: burgers & sandwiches...great fries.
Now the bad news: Some of the restaurants we normally eat at were not as good as in past years. Most notably: The Garden in Londonderry. We used to love the middle eastern rice dish(no longer available) and the menu was narrow with few choices. Also Panarella's in Ludlow was disappointing. We felt like we were being rushed. Waiter took the drink & dinner order together. We received the appetizer before the drinks. We did think the food was good. Chicken Marsala was rich & a large portion.
