Re: “Pizzeria Verità to Buy Trattoria Delia and Sotto Enoteca

Congratulations John and Leslie on your upcoming purchase of Tratt. Living in Vermont's NEK, we don't get to Burlington often, but I still remember the romantic evenings Sally and I spent at the Tratt.

Re: “Spacious New Digs for Vermont Artisan Coffee & Tea

Well reasoned post Paco but what does Act 250 have to do with reason ? This statute has become a huge work project for the environment crowd giving employment to a horde of lawyers and "professionals" in this industry . It also allows those that don't wish competition to stifle new growth by engaging in obstructionist tactics. The overall protection of Vermont has been sacrificed to a patchwork process where project success depends on your financial ability to wait out roadblocks .

Getting back to Stowe and Rt 100 , this is a problem that sadly never gets better . Combined with the Mountain Road (Rt 108) , these roads are never improved except for a little tinkering . Traffic has grown ,especially large trucks and there has been no action to improve the situation . In fact things have gotten worse .

Re: “Spacious New Digs for Vermont Artisan Coffee & Tea

How did this place possibly get an Act 250 permit? Traffic on Rt 100 between Stowe and Waterbury is already horrendous.

The legislature needs to audit Washington County's Act 250 commission. Growth should occur closer to the interstate where there's less impact on traffic and environment. Vail buying the ski operations, businesses like this expanding on Rt 100, and the continued growth of Stowe as a 4-season tourist destination will only provide fuel to further environmental and traffic problems plaguing the corridor.

Growth is great. But growth's gotta occur closer to the interstate and our village centers where there's existing infrastructure to accommodate additional traffic. Expanding Rt 100 to four lanes is too expensive.

Re: “Namuna Asian Kitchen Opens in Winooski

Used to LOVE Dharshan Namaste Asian Deli was so said when they switched owners. Never really cared for Spice Traders' Kitchen. It just wasn't nearly as good ss Namaste. Hopefully this new place will be just as good as Namaste.

Re: “Talking Science and Vermont Beer Culture at Drop-In Brewing

What an interesting article about an outstanding young lady. Her enthusiasm for her craft and dedication to her job come shining through the article. I'll stop by to taste the new creations.

Re: “Pints and Bites at Hired Hand Brewing Co.

Amazing the good things a ton of money can buy these days.
I remember the good old days when a glass of beer was a quarter.

Re: “Nepali Market Expands to Burlington's New North End

Welcome to the NNE. Please consider selling fresh bulk spices and other natural foods as well. Our only choices short of going to City Market are the very lame Price Chopper and Hannifords. You should do well at that location but also consider expanding your scope a bit

Re: “Breakfast Club: Popover Stop at Rustic Roots

Rustic Roots is my must go to when visiting Vermont . The staff is always friendly and patient even while busy . I have never been disappointed and always delighted with the food I have ordered . I look forward to the farmers market and Rustic Roots Crepes on my next visit . Food made with love is a beautiful thing .

Re: “Breakwater Café Closes, Will Be Second Location for the Spot

I've heard they're putting an end to live music. That would be a shame. Always enjoyed listening to local bands while enjoying a burger and beer while watching the sunset.

Rustic Roots does a very nice job with shirred eggs, among other things. Good food.

Re: “Unlikely Allies Seek to Make Vermont's Milk the Cream of the Industry

What about hooking this in to crowd-funding and carbon offsets markets that already exist? If people understood how powerful this can be, for sequestering carbon in soil and for lake cleanup, as well as the health benefits of pastured dairy products and the tourism value of cows on pasture, not just on the side of Cabot trucks, I think they would want to be part of it. Maybe we could even create a Champlain brand that people could buy with that virtuous feeling of helping their lake and planet. These are different times, post-election, with millions of people looking for ways to make a difference, and I know many who would like to be part of this movement. If we lead, waving dollar bills, big dairy will follow, just the way cows follow a pail of grain.
P.S. I LOVED Steve Judge's Vermont Family Farms milk, and miss it.

Re: “Breakfast Club: Popover Stop at Rustic Roots

I was fortunate to grow up in a house where the lady in charge--my scrappy and resourceful French Canadian mother--made the world's best popovers. It was almost magical how tray after tray of perfectly browned domes of dough came forth from the oven on the nights she made them. I do believe it's time for a popover renaissance. If Vermont can produce substantial amounts of some of the world's best cheese, beer, cider, and more, what amazing things might we do with the popover?

I absolutely love the cheese at the Creamery, and I love working there even more!!! Go 2017

Re: “Immune-Boosting Fire Cider Packs Heat

I second the point by David Diaz. This is particularly important in the Trump anti-science era. I think it's fair to wonder how open Seven Days would be to printing an equally science-free article that was in support of, say, Climate-Change denial.
