Re: “McGillicuddy's on the Green

0 I rate this establishment a big 0! The day manager on Sundays is very discriminating, loud and clearly caters to certain people.
The rules on dine in change all the time... which is fine. However annoying yet also based on certain individuals. They do not offer an all you can eat dine in only deal.... therefore you come in before a certain time and get the reduced price. That's a law and quit frankly. The manager needs to read up on this because the third time is a charm and verbal threats of bodily harm to a paying customer who goes there often should not be subjected to wishy washy rules. Don't even get me started on the details this should be enough to turn yourself away ! Manager and owner will be charged !

Re: “Luminary Ink Tattoos, Body Piercing & Permanent Cosmetics

My daughter, Ryann is an artist at Luminary, and her work is totally off the charts. The new studio is beautiful, and the location is convenient with none of the BS parking hassles in B-town. Congrats to Sara and her staff for taking this 3 steps up! Love you guys - you rock!

Re: “Istanbul Kebab House

Tired of the restaurant week restaurants promising the moon and ending up disappointing, we tried Istanbul kebabs for a take away dinner. While not the finest kebabs I've ever head, the meat was flavorful and distinctly kebab. Served with a tasty assortment of onions, salad, and red cabbage, everything came together well and was definitely more satisfying than the rest of the weekend had been. Falafel were decent, again nothing distinguishing, simply good solid fare. Their variant of tzatziki, while thin, made a nice finish over the dish. Overall, would definitely consider as something to take home for a weekday meal.

Re: “Citizen Cider

Another stop on the restaurant week tour, we had decidedly mixed feelings across the various dishes and drinks here. As a cidery that happens to have a tasting room/pub attached, they do get bumped up a rating by the food being decent and edible. The pub foods were quite good, really, the burgers cooked well and full of flavor, and the fried broccoli bites absolutely delicious. Their foray into restaurant cuisine, however, was rather less successful, with their chicken confit being bland overcooked chicken in a thin, off-tasting sauce. The beans were actually bad, mushy and tasting spoiled. Stick to pub food, don't be adventurous here. On the drink side, their exotic ciders were well thought out and memorable, the dirty mayor being the stand out for it's bold flavors. Overall I'll happily have their cider again...when I buy it at the grocery store, and not in the restaurant.

Re: “Esperanza Restaurante

Excited to have pupusa again, we went to Esperanza for restaurant week and had their preset menu. Even though they were "everything" pupusa, however, they weren't particularly flavorful, or ingredient-full either. Solidly mediocre, which was disappointing. Moving on to the main course, we had decidedly mixed opinions. The mole was...okay. Again, not very flavorful, which is not how a mole should taste--it should be bold, and memorable. This was a a small drizzle of thin sauce over the top of decent chicken. The carne a la milanesa, however, was absolutely delicious. Very flavorful and savory marinade, the steak really popped. None of the sides stood out enough to mention specifically, which left us with one good main dish. Finally, they were out of their flan, leaving us with "fried" ice cream for desert. As others have noted, it really is just ice cream rolled in corn flakes. I'm pretty sure they don't even fry it--it doesn't come out hot and melting. Overall, a rather disappointing experience, especially for restaurant week.

Re: “Quick Cab

This company quoted us at 16.25 then tells me it's 20.25 and all because the driver doesn't know where they are going then they say you got a good deal anyway they lost a good customer! I would advise calling a different cab company

Re: “Idletyme Brewing Company

Service was good. Duck was over-cooked and dry. Kids' chicken tenders were just under burnt, a very dark brown. There are so many good places to eat in Stowe, I am sorry I choose this one. For a beer, great place, for food, not so much!

Re: “Jimmz Pizza

Went back and am changing my previous review. Food was still good but the cashier knowingly tried to rip me off for $8. Needless to say I'm not returning.

Re: “Echo Restaurant & Lounge

Definitely a mixed bag - the food was very good, but the service was awful. The staff seemed interested only in talking to one another and were put out by having to actually wait on people. Very weird and unwelcoming vibe. If you can enjoy good food, regardless of the atmosphere you'll be fine. Otherwise, there are plenty of other good restaurants in Brattleboro to visit.

Re: “Nunyuns Bakery & Café

I love the homey feel of Nunsies. This place is a true Neighborhood Kitchen. Great Soups! And i love seeing local artists given opportunity to exhibit their artwork. I'm glad this is a cafe without wi-fi. Nice place to talk, read and enjoy the bright light, plants, art and the savory and sweet eats. Thank you Christine and Paul!

Re: “Dedalus Wine

Great food, great wine, but the prices are too high for the area and the pretentiousness is unbearable.

Re: “Dedalus Wine Shop, Market & Wine Bar

Pretentious much? This place has "Portlandia" written all over it!

Re: “Red Square

Really really love this place. Staff is totally welcome, great quality drinks for the price you're paying, and the place to go if you want to dance. I recommend this spot to all my friends!

Re: “Dedalus Wine Shop, Market & Wine Bar

I'm a longtime fan of Chef Max Mackinnon (from Pistou days) and Jason Zuliani (Dedalus Wine Shop) so I knew their new venture would be good.
I was delightfully surprised at how fabulous the whole experience was!!
The setting is awesome, the small plates are perfect and the vibe is super cool.
Plus I loved the gourmet food shop they introduced - great for specialty food products.
The place is BIZZY - we waited for a table both times we went - but worth it.
Welcome to the 'hood!!

Re: “The Little Red Kitchen

I've been to the Little Red Kitchen several times the buffalo chicken salad is my favorite. Sandwiches & Soups are also very good and fresh. Cheryl is very inviting and funny. I would recommend the Little Red Kitchen to my friends & family.
Thank you Cheryl for all the several lunches you have made me.

Re: “Delicate Decadence Cake Boutique

Their cupcakes looked promising but were terribly dry. We bought an assortment of flavors; none of them tasted great; they were just ok. The tiramisu was truly disappointing. It was made with bland, dry sponge cake (instead of ladyfingers) that should have been soaked with espresso or coffee but sadly, was not. Also, the cream/custard was thick and gloppy, and tasted like vanilla pudding from a box. Blagh. There was no coffee available (early afternoon, after lunch), so that was an added bummer to the whole experience.
It had been at least 5 or 6 years since I'd last been in. Looks like Delicate Decadence's quality has really gone downhill since then. I recently read that it changed ownership in 2014 -- maybe that is the problem.
