Side Dishes: Leftover Food News

The Lord giveth, and the economy taketh away? Less than three months after Annam Restaurant brought Vietnamese food back to St. Albans, the eatery unceremoniously closed. A Seven Days reader reported: “There is a ‘Closed’ sign on one door and a ‘For Lease’ sign in one window, replacing several ‘Temporarily Closed’ signs that had been posted for the past month.” Owner Duc Le could not be reached for comment.

Annam is the second Vietnamese restaurant to close in St. Albans after less than a year in operation. Another, Bamboo House, shut in September 2008.

Burlingtonians love brunch, and American Flatbread Burlington Hearth recently began serving an uncommon one. Every Saturday and Sunday from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., says manager Tracy Howard, “egg pies” have been emerging from the wood-fired oven.

The menu’s two regular items include an eggs Benedict flatbread. It’s topped with cheese, fresh tomatoes, Salumeria Biellese capicola and over-easy eggs, then drizzled with tangy Hollandaise sauce.

There’s also a varied, ever-changing Bloody Mary menu. The “secret” organic mix is made from local ingredients, and the olives are stuffed with blue cheese in house. The kitchen even pickles its own veggie garnishes, which range from the traditional to more exotic choices such as Brussels sprouts. Now, that’s starting a day off strong!
