Anything good near Essex?

OliverB | Dec 23, 2011 06:18 AM

I'm driving up from Montreal on the 26th to do some post-holiday shopping at the Essex JCT Outlets, hoping to score some after Xmas sales at Brooks, Bass, Orvis, etc.

I've been Hen of the Wood in Waterbury and other great tables in the area, but am really only looking to make a short day-trip out of this and hopefully not verge too far off route, if can be avoided. Not necessarily looking for anything fancy. Just great local/seasonal fare en route.

Is there anything in the area that's worth a stop?

I'd be more than willing to drive into Burlington for a great lunch. Any suggestions?
