In Waitsfield, Phantom closed its doors last week. The eclectic locavore restaurant opened last winter in the Mad River Green, building on the success of a pop-up dinner and music series by the same name. (The like-named food truck has also been sold.) Chef-co-owner Matt Sargent announced the closure in a lengthy Facebook post.

"With fantastic music, food as good as we could make it, an unbelievably cool crew and patrons that completely rocked," Sargent wrote, Phantom was a "true joy to be a part of." He cited "purely financial reasons" for the closure. In a follow-up post, he promised to return soon: "Somehow, some way, I'll keep getting food in front of folks. I can't help myself." Fans will have to wait with bated breath until the Phantom flies again.

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.
