Re: “Shinjuku Station Offers Takeout Sushi in Burlington

Jennifer Blair, I think it's all at 260 North St (right on the corner of North and N Winooski). I'm so glad to have their sushi back! I ran into Peter at the cart on Church St and when he told me they were opening a location in the ONE, I literally jumped up and down with joy.

Re: “Shinjuku Station Offers Takeout Sushi in Burlington

City Market made another one of their customary consumer/vendor unfriendly moves when they lost these folks. They have not had sushi reliably since and their management has repeatedly made excuse after excuse for their short-sighted, confusing move. I am glad these good folks are going to continue in business and plan, on my trips to town, to be a regular customer. Their product was always fresh, tasty and very affordable. It is truly sad that City Market can not stand by its initial promise to be responsive to its customers and vendors and continues to make arbitrary, nonsensical decisions.

Re: “Dining on a Dime: $3 Tacos at La Puerta Negra

Other than to advertise cheap tacos and dance lessons, this article serves no purpose.

Re: “Inside the von Trapp Bierhall, Soft-Opening September 15

We've always enjoyed going to the Von Trapp Lodge for dinner, but I do wish they would expand their beer menu a bit, especially into the realm of ales.

Re: “Burlington's New Foam Brewers Go With the Flow

This whole brew craze has become a bit banal to me... I mean... I'm happy for these kids and their venture... I wish them luck... but it sounds like it's been created or sustained with family money. How do they make money to live? I mean are they selling enough of this stuff to pay off the loan, the rent, the energy costs, the upscale refit of the space. I mean I am sure they are drawing paychecks from the business which will keep them in mustache wax and ironic T-shirts for the short term... and I know the markup on booze is big... but until they scale up?... in an ever increasingly competitive market can any of these places be viable?... or does the Burlington populace really drink that much?

Re: “Inside the von Trapp Bierhall, Soft-Opening September 15

There are multiple ways to define stodgy and 'old fashioned' is the more oft used definition I'm familiar with. I would agree with the author that it was an appropriate choice to define a space that didn't seem to tie in with current times or their current offering(s). I like stepping into a simpler era now and then, but I'm glad the von Trapp family will now offer this new experience without losing touch with the former.

Re: “Inside the von Trapp Bierhall, Soft-Opening September 15

Beth Dixon, I'm sorry if my word choice offended! I didn't mean to describe the resort in a negative way, but as "traditional, old-fashioned, of an earlier time/place," to frame the new place as a contrast to the old. I have incredible respect for the von Trapps and their business(es) and no reason to portray what they do in an unfavorable light.

Re: “Inside the von Trapp Bierhall, Soft-Opening September 15

It's a shame the author suggests that Trapp was ever a stodgy resort. Having shared this with my family and other property owners who have visited the lodge for many years, all were rather put off by the description of the lodge in this way. While the addition of the brewery and Bierhall have been a new, refreshing offering, the lodge has always had the best skiing, snowshoeing, and hiking trails around. They've hosted a variety of music genres in their meadow, and they have always had the best chefs around town. The definition of stodgy is dull and uninspiring - maybe if the author had checked the view out more than a decade ago she would have seen it was anything but uninspiring!

Re: “Dining on a Dime: Sweet Simone's Bagel & Lox Sandwich

The Almond Croissant at Sweet Simone's is the best around. Also recommend the Lemon Ginger Scone, Lemon Poppyseed Muffin, Mixed Berry Scone, Spinach and Feta Croissant, Morning Bun, Raspberry Bar and great Chocolate Chip Cookie. Only issue for me is having to make a decision with so many excellent options.

Re: “Taste Test: Soup's On at Gaku Ramen

I went early on to Gaku. I didn't expect Ippudo. I was excited to read that the kitchen had been advised by Ramen "masters" from Japan. The shishito peppers were on the menu that day and were very good (they are available at the Saturday Farmer's Market). The ramen presentation was quite nice. My bowl had the requisite under cooked egg, a slab of pork, and tons of noodles - all very good quality and cooked appropriately. The broth could be excellent if the chefs would refrain from using canned, off tasting bamboo shoots. They ruin the dish in my estimation. I mentioned this to the waitress, but it appears from this review that my suggestion fell on deaf ears. I'll give Gaku another chance perhaps after the sensei return to critique the kitchen.

Re: “Dining on a Dime: Sweet Simone's Bagel & Lox Sandwich

Donna, it's not just a bagel; it's a bagel sandwich with salmon! Chris, waa! Lisa, try reading before commenting. "Dining on a Dime is a weekly series featuring well-made, filling bites (something substantial enough to qualify as a small meal or better) for $12 or less."

Re: “Taste Test: Soup's On at Gaku Ramen

Went once and while it's got a fun vibe and the staff was great, the ramen paled in comparison to the noodles at HJ House, which was closed for the summer and hopefully will re-open this month (I've seriously spent the last three months in fear that they will never re-open). It's tucked under the Pub and Brew, on St. Paul.
