Re: “Café Shelburne

Exceptional flavors
I brought my parents here for Christmas Eve -- a bit of a risk since I had not come beforehand to vet its new incarnation. Fortunately, we were all well pleased! My folks, who've eaten around the world, pronounced our dinner well worth the money. We started with a fish stew and a winter endive salad; my entree was an eight-grain 'risotto,' and we finished with apple tart. Throughout, the ingredients, flavors and textures were clear, full, and balanced. Nothing was gimmicky, it was all just extremely well prepared. The room is attractive and cozy, and the servers were lovely. We left feeling both nourished and cosseted. Food: 5 Ambiance: 4 Service: 4

Re: “Sampling the Chef-Made Foods to Go at Gilfeather's

I'm seconding the reaction to the writer's distaste for "townies." You aren't doing the Bensons any favors with your classism.

Re: “This Old Zoning Dispute: Duplex to Be Built After Years-Long Battle

So "not everyone is happy" = one neighbor who got to enjoy having open space nearby? That's thin. Better to have dropped that angle, the substantive stuff here is the city's development process.

Re: “The Ex-Bernie Staffers Behind Beto’s Campaign

What makes O'Rourke a populist as stated here? And what's your basis for implying that these folks left Sanders when they went to work for O'Rourke in 2018 -- do you know that work was available with Sanders then? If not, it's hardly news that people in politics took available jobs. All in all this piece seems flimsy.

Re: “Burlington Town Hall Featuring Bernie Sanders Draws New American Crowd

My French-speaking grandma moved to this country from Canada as a teen, the same age as some of these young men. She would've appreciated this kind of neighborly welcome. I'm glad one of our senators is putting forth the effort.

The comment about IQs is kind of funny, kind of sad. Unless YG's ancestors were all indigenous she doesn't have much of a leg to stand on.

Re: “Burlington's Magnolia Bistro Shuts Down

No loss, he was well known in town as a lousy employer.

Re: “Super Volunteer Laura Hale Grows Community in Burlington's Old North End

Congratulations, Seven Days - the choice to cover Laura reflects some real smarts and knowledge of the community. It's hard to capture just how amazing Laura Hale is but you did pretty well!

Re: “Health Group Chair Says She Was 'Silenced' by Scott Administration

If Gobeille says that Palumbo is dedicated -- which I can readily believe -- then the fact that she stepped down seems to speak for itself.
