A whole floor including stairwells, halls , waiting room and kitchen in the renovated historic Hardwick Inn, available on an informal basis to local artists and the community. Fun!

Re: “Parkway Diner

it is standard practice to poach eggs in a the same shallow pot (or deep pan) using the same hot water in the pan with a little vinegar. If you boiled new water and used a new pot or pan for everyone who ordered a poached egg/eggs Benidict, it would take forever. Otherwise, a very nice comment. I'm going to check out the parkway again next time I come home.

Re: “Positive Pie (Barre)

Food quality going downhill. Our trip to the Barre location last week was beyond disappointing. As the last review noted they loved the salmon dish. Fast forward a few years and the potatoes were hard as rock, sitting in oil, they were out of most appetizers and nothing tasted fresh. It was as if things were sitting around all day. Nasty compared to a year or so ago. Restaurant not busy and service was subpar. Slow and kitchen very slow.

Re: “Nunyuns Bakery & Café

Been all over this town and Nunyuns is the best eatery for breakfast and lunch. Best food, best prices and best politics. Closest we have to a citywide salon. Support the neighborhood. Support Nunyuns

Real herbs. No hype. Real local raw honey--filtered & un. Warm, real information to help you navigate.

Re: “Charlie-O's World Famous

Absolute best "dive" bar, period. Cash bar, friendly people, live original music (no cover crap). Love going there when I can.

Out for a Saturday drive? The Tasting Room at Hooker Mountain Farm is a unique experience and worth the drive down Lovely Road.

Re: “Rotisserie Restaurant

Sunday brunch combined quality and value in a warm and friendly atmosphere. Eggs Benny were perfect, and the hash and eggs, huge. Plus $5 Bloody Marys!

Re: “Esperanza Restaurante

ate there recently - pleasant room - good service
food was OK to meh
the refried beans were tasty - as mentioned above -perhaps the best part of the meal
the fish tacos- nice amount of fish - but as stated above - kinda flavorless
skip the pupusas - bland, fried - a major disappointment - thought they would be excellent - sounded like arepas - they arent - these were pretty awful and sat in my tummy like a lead balloon
want this place to be better - hope to try it again
ps - do not go by the review of the food writer in training that 7 days employs- hannah - she is absurd

Re: “McGillicuddy's on the Green

Mcgillicuddys has great food and great service. Food is always consistent and tastes great. They have local grass fed burgers and a great variety of menu items. They also have one of the largest selections of local brews anywhere around. As a google guide I would highly recommend them to try.

Re: “Barkeaters Restaurant

This was our first visit to Barkeaters as we had never even heard of it. We started off with delicious warm bread with warm sweet butter. We had Mishroom fries for an appetizer-delicious with a mango aioli-mmmm! Then my husband had the beet-sweet potato salad and I had the Arugula-Quinoa with a green goddess dressing and they happily substituted Chvre for Blue Cheese which I do not care for! Both salads were amazing and the Maple Cider dressing my husband got was spot on! For entrees, my husband had the cedar plank salmon and I had the lemon chicken with the creamiest risotto that I have ever tasted! Everything from the kitchen was well done, the service was prompt, friendly and attentive. And the best part was the holiday bark served in a tiny canoe with our check-perfect! We WILL be back!

Re: “Hattie's Kitchen

We enjoyed our first trip to Hattie's this morning for breakfast and we will certainly return soon. Pat personally welcomed us to her oh-so-cozy eatery and made a point to greet and serve all of her guests. My husband's homemade cinnamon raisin bread French Toast was both flavorful and filling. The side of bacon was perfectly cooked to his liking. My blueberry pancake was huge (about 9 inch diameter) and plump with berries. Vermont maple syrup is standard fare as are bottomless cups of coffee and tea. Enjoying Hattie's is a quintessential slice of Vermont!

Re: “Esperanza Restaurante

This place offers the only hope of authentic Tex-Mex in Vermont. I grew up in Texas and have delightfully consumed thousands of Tex-Mex dishes, thus, a move to Vermont a decade ago created a huge culinary void -- particularly in the area of queso, refried beans and Mexican rice. This restaurant is the only one I've found that knows how to do these items right, *without* drowning them in cumin, or melting American cheese into a bowl and calling it queso, etc. And they actually use lard in the refritos (gasp!) as authentic recipes often call for. My default is the two-item combo with a refried-bean tostada and chile relleno.I do wish they offered a hotter version of salsa, but overall I'm very glad for this place to exist.
