Finer Diner? 

Side Dishes: Tully & Marie’s turns down Tod Murphy

For a time, it looked like The Farmers Diner — which is currently located in Quechee but planning to expand to Middlebury — would replace Tully & Marie’s on the banks of Otter Creek. But, according to diner owner Tod Murphy, the switch is not to be.

“They decided they actually wanted to stay in business,” Murphy confided last week at the Vermont Statehouse, where he’d been giving testimony to the House Agriculture Committee on the importance of local food systems.

Murphy explained that he’s still planning to bring the cozy localvore eatery to the college town. He just doesn’t know yet where the biz will land.

Long-term plans include a total of four Farmers Diners — one in Chittenden Country — and a commissary kitchen where staffers could efficiently churn out tomato sauce, preserves and soup stock for all of the eateries.

How quickly do you judge a new restaurant?

  • If it's not good the first time I eat there, I won't go back.
  • I like to give new places a couple chances before I file a verdict
  • I try to take each dining experience on its own merits — all restaurants have off days!
  • I like to wait a while before trying new spots — so they can work out the kinks.
  • If a restaurant isn't perfect by its first anniversary, time to call it quits.
