After paying tuition for 4 years of high school, and six years of college - our son is finally getting his bachelor's from UMass Amherst!! We would love to take him out to eat, and know that the Amherst/Northampton area will be impossibly packed (and we haven't found anywhere terrific, anyhow). We were thinking of heading as far away as Brattleboro/Putney VT to find a table. (I lived ni Springfield VT for several years, and our son was born in Rockingham.)
Beyond the Common Ground, are there any chowish restaurants in the extreme southeastern area of VT? The only criteria is good food - don't care if it's fancy/formal or not. We just like to eat!
