Burlington (or surrounds) dinner out - without the kids!

deborahkp | Jun 18, 2010 05:21 PM

My husband and I are spending a week with my family on vacation in South Hero, VT, the end of June. Our children are 1 and 3, and as we don't get out as often as we used to (we are former foodies, now foodies-in-waiting), we are very excited about having family around to babysit a couple of nights! We have already made reservations at Hen of the Wood and are looking for a second restaurant for dinner. We will likely be accompanied by my brother and his girlfriend and are looking for something a bit less upscale, with a fun atmosphere, perhaps some good cocktails.

We are considering Bluebird Tavern, The Green Room and American Flatbread - but are definitely open to other suggestions. For some reason I am underwhelmed by the idea of the frequently recommended (Single Pebble,Trattoria Delia, and L'Amante) – and feel like we want something a bit more…fun? But feel free to convince me otherwise!

None of us are familiar with the area, and would appreciate the feedback of other hounds who are! Suggestions?
