Pizza Changes; a Chocolate Café 

Side Dishes

Williston’s 202 Cornerstone Drive has long been a pizza hub. Most recently, Vermont Pizza Company replaced longtime tenant Rocky’s N.Y. Pizza. Next month, Williston Village Pizza will open where Vermont Pizza Company closed in February.

While New York-style pies were the attraction at the last two restaurants, new co-owner Kosta Makris says his Greek heritage will define the style of pizza at his establishment. Makris, who previously owned Northfield Village Pizza and Rutland House of Pizza, says that his crust is thicker than most and prepared deep-dish style. Conventional toppings are joined by a few Hellenic options, including feta cheese.

Makris and co-owner Timothy LaPlante, who was wounded in military action before returning to Vermont, are currently assembling a menu that also includes pasta, subs and salads in anticipation of their September opening. And just like their predecessors, they’ll serve creemees, too, in the summer months.


Last fall, we reported that Lake Champlain Chocolates planned to open a café in the South End. Though the company isn’t ready to flesh out the details of the Pine Street space, a recent ad for a pastry chef offers a glimpse into its shape and scope.

“The South End Kitchen at Lake Champlain Chocolates is a sweet and savory café opening in fall 2013,” reads the ad on “We are looking for passionate chocolate lovers and food enthusiasts to join the SEK team.”

LCC is seeking someone with three to five years of experience who can turn out baked goods, pastries, desserts and ice cream. If we weren’t tied up as food writers, we might just apply.

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.
