Re: “ABC Café & Pub

We stopped there the other day for the first time since its old days as Bananas, and we were favorably impressed. Bucking the trend of almost all eateries in Chittenden County, ABC has kept its prices affordable, and the food and drinks are good. I got a great sandwich and a terrific Martini for a total of just over $10. The service was prompt and friendly, and we found ourselves chatting with other customers--it's that kind of place.

I'm getting tired of all the new restaurants with $10 burgers, $12 drinks, "small plates" with two beans and a smear of risotto for $5.98, and waitstaff who act like they are doing us a big favor by allowing us to spend our money. Chittenden County used to have quite a few restaurants with real food at affordable prices with a friendly atmosphere--that has become so rare that ABC now really stands out. I'm told there is live music--Blues Jams (!)--some nights, and look forward to checking that out

Re: “Pho Nguyen

Great food and significant improvements in the environment from the previous establishment, including a pool table, comfortable seating and a full bar.

Re: “Maggie O's

Maggie's has a great DIY yogurt set-up -- you choose your yogurt flavors (as many as you want), then add whatever toppings you want! You pay by the ounce, so you can get as little or as much as you want. Plus, Maggie herself is super-friendly.

Re: “Sparkling Champagne & Wine Bar

Not only did we get a delicious bottle of bubbly, but we learned so much from Nancy the proprietress about sparkling wines. Lovely historic house setting, elegant and laid-back at the same time: to sum up, a great experience!

Re: “Absolute Wellness Healing Spa

This is the most beautiful spa I've been to. I've been to all of them in the Burlington area, thanks to my hubby giving me gift certificates. As soon as I walked in this spa, they had me at 'Hello.' The soothing sounds, natural lighting and spacious lounge was so inviting, I felt right at home, like I had entered a peaceful sanctuary. The aura from the staff is even warm and calming and their attentive customer service is always welcoming. Try out the sonic vibration and the anti-gravity before your massage. It helps my muscles relax and loosen up before my services even start. The therapists are mind blowing. Period. I've had Donnie, Sarah and Nancy so far for hot stone, deep muscle massage, body scrubs and wraps. They're all fantastic. So amazing, I recommend this place to everyone I know. And I'm getting my parents to go here for their aching backs/painful muscles for a couples massage. They also offer amazing facials - my skin glows for weeks afterwards. And the Brazilian wax services with Jackie is absolutely the best in town. Her waxing is quick and painless - and very thorough. I've never had to do any at-home post wax grooming with Brazilians done with her. Their affordable spa membership and waxing packages make this little habit possible for me continue monthly.

Re: “Phantom

Wow, what a fantastic meal tonight at Phantom in Waitsfield. We ordered three small plates ("cold side" on the menu) and two main courses ("hot side), and could not resist dessert. Every bite of each course was extraordinary. the server told us the menu changes on a regular basis (lots of local ingredients) so no point in telling you what we ate. We will pass the word on to our friends, and we'll be back, over and over again!

Re: “Mélange On Main

I love this place. The ever changing stock is a treat for the eye. Prices range from affordable and fun accent pieces to heirloom (but not stuffy) furniture that future generations will fight over. Melange also carries Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, and offers samples, classes, and inspiration so you can create your own one of a kind treasure.

Re: “Maynard's Snack Bar

Re: “Peter Havens

By far the best dining in the Brattleboro area. Chef/ Owner Zach Corbin does an excellent job with a seasonal menu that is reflective of his passion for cooking. They have recently added a deck for lunch & dinner dining, weather permitting. It does not matter if it is a business lunch or a romantic evening this is where I would recommend you go if you're in the area. You will not be disappointed.

Re: “Ocha Thai Restaurant

A favorite of our whole family. Love the beef salad, pad thai, pot stickers, and red curry! Could easily keep everyone happy eating here 3-4 days/week. Expect to wait a little longer on Friday night.

Re: “The Lodge at Millstone Hill

A beautiful location to stay and bike or hike the trails. It becomes even more magical every June at its annual RockFire Festival, a celebration of Vermont, nature, fire, water, and Barre's granite history through a 2-mile luminary-lit FireWalk. Two thumbs up!

Re: “Central Market: Taste of Asia

A hidden treasure in the North End! This is the Asian Market across from the former Q-Tees dairy bar. They are Nepalese, and have authentic Indian fare on the menu. We crave good Indian and it's hard to find in Vermont.. we go to Montreal for it. Tried the Vegetable Thali, which had an assortment of all our favorites- papadum, naan, aloo gobi, lentil dal, and a matar paneer that was to DIE for. All really clean, tidy, nice seating area, great family feel. Such reasonable prices. Tikka is an amazing cook! Everyone there is so nice! Definitely making this a regular date night..

Re: “Central Market: Taste of Asia

My wife and I had lunch there and were introduced to the unique flavors of Nepalese cuisine. The food was superb. What a breath of fresh air to Burlington!

Re: “3 Squares Café

The food is tasty beyond belief, the menu has a great variety, and the specials to die for. The ingredients are mostly local and they make their own chocolate.The staff is fun, helpful and very friendly. I love this restaurant..

Re: “Tillotson Center

Colebrook is the regional commerce center for the Northeast Kingdom communities of Lemington and Canaan, Vermont. Sitting on the eastern shore of the Connecticut River, it has banking, auto dealership, shopping, restaurants and now, in partnership with the Great North Woods Committee for the Arts, high quality entertainment in the 172 seat Kaufmann Theater, equipped with a state of the art Bose surround sound acoustic system. It also has a large screen for movies and a dance floor. See the Center's facebook page or its website for a current program schedule. It is also available on a rental basis for special events from weddings, parties and meetings, dances, concerts and movie screenings. The lower floors contain a gallery and a historical exhibit of 1800's fire equipment from Colebrook's past.

Re: “Yangser Dorjee’s Himalaya Restaurant

Himalaya is a great new lunch spot for the downtown crowd. It is spacious with views of the water (if you look beyond the old warehouse-type buildings), and there is plenty of seating to go around. I had a combination of 6 momo, two of each variety (beef, chicken, and vegetarian). They were just the right mix of savory and spicy, and the red sauce that accompanied them added a wonderful zing. The service was fast and attentive, and it was easy to get in and out within an hour and get back to the office (although I'm sure a more leisurely meal would have been possible). To sum up: 5 stars!

Re: “Sotto Enoteca

The bartender, Lindsey, was friendly and knowledgeable. We started with a flight of wines. Sangiovese for me and Nebbiola for my husband. We also got an order of olives which we so delicious and plentiful. I had the Lasagetta-served in a pot. it was sausage and cheese covered in a layer of lasagna noodle and more sauce and cheese. One of the best past dishes I have ever had! My husband got the short ribs and vegetables.. Also very good. The atmosphere is a trendy little cafe with about 10-15 tables. Small wine bar with 6-7 seats. Really nice, relaxed air and nice music, slightly jazzy. One of the best things we found in Burlington. We will definitely go back. Thanks again Lindsey!

Re: “Fort Ethan Allen

I think most of us who live on Officer's Row in the Fort love the art installations that our neighbor creates every now and then! Remember the monster clothesline, including the outsized laundry with giant clothespins, stretched across the field a few years ago? In my opinion, we are lucky to live in this hood and be treated to such interesting and wonderful creativity! It is sad to see many of the old trees succumb to the chainsaw, so dressing up this maple for a while and paying homage makes this resident smile, just for a while.
