Hotel Vermont may be the latest new Burlington hotel to house two restaurants, but soon it won’t be the only one. In autumn 2014, a new Hilton Garden Inn will open in the building that once held the Burlington Armory. According to Sean Riley, CEO of Maine Course Hospitality Group, the upper level of the hotel will be remade to showcase the interior brick walls of the historic building.
The lobby area of the 140-room hotel will be home to the bistro-style Hilton franchise, Great American Grill. Downstairs, Riley says, local realtors Redstone Commercial Group and Nedde Real Estate “are working with two or three different Burlington restaurant companies to do something fun and unique.”
Hungry hockey fans across the lake have something to look forward to. On December 9, Martti Matheson and Aaron Miller will open their second Buffalo Wild Wings franchise at 200 Consumer Square in Plattsburgh. Diners should plan on wings in 16 different flavors, TVs all around and a side of charity. The night before the official opening, Matheson and Miller — a National Hockey League and Olympic veteran — will host a benefit for Plattsburgh Youth Hockey. It’s just the beginning of a sharp partnership.
