Side Dishes: Leftover food news

On Monday morning, the corner of Main and South Champlain streets in Burlington was a hive of activity. Several men were at work on the interior of what will be Spanish tapas restaurant Via Loma.

Though chef-owner Rob Minichiello was not present, two workers said he’s planning a July 15 opening.

Want to snag the “best breakfast” in Vermont, according to the hungry folks at the Food Network? Look no further than Penny Cluse Café in Burlington.

In a feature in the July/August issue of the network’s ’zine, the downtown hot spot is lauded for its eponymous breakfast item: biscuits and herbed gravy served with poached eggs and home fries.

Montpelier’s Hunger Mountain Coop, which recently underwent a significant expansion, is considering another one: a second branch. If feasibility studies pan out and member-owners agree, the co-op may create a second location in the building that currently houses RJ’s Friendly Market in Waterbury. RJ’s owner is considering retirement, Vermont Business Magazine reports.

Barring complications, the new store could be open by the end of the year.

How do you feel about eating GMO foods?

  • I don't understand what the fuss is about. I eat them and I'm fine.
  • As long as they're FDA-approved, I don't mind consuming them.
  • GMOs are in most staple foods, so I'm resigned to eating them.
  • I wish they were labeled so I could make informed choices about when to eat them.
  • I'm concerned about potential long-term health effects of consuming GMOs, which haven't yet been studied.
