Side Dishes: A Burlington favorite shutters temporarily; for others it’s permanent

Published June 8, 2011 at 6:48 a.m.

Fans of American Flatbread — Burlington Hearth had better hurry and get some pizza and brews to tide them over for a while. Co-owner Rob Downey says his restaurant will close for renovations on June 13 and may remain that way for as long as two weeks.

Downey says his team timed the closure to coincide with road work happening on St. Paul Street. When Flatbread reopens, he says to expect new floors, new ceilings — and a party to celebrate.

St. Albans’ Blue Acorn abruptly ended its one-year run at the close of May; Pauline Cray, the mother of owner Tim Cray, says personal reasons were behind the closure.

Blue Acorn’s windows are now covered with paper, and a handwritten sign advertises a new authentic Mexican restaurant, Mi Casita, to open soon.

Essex Junction has also lost one of its mainstays: the Drunken Noodle House has closed its doors. No word on who, if anyone, will step into the eatery’s footprint.
