Hotel Vermont Breaks Ground Wednesday 

Burlingtonians loath to drive to Waterbury for mushrooms and eggs on toast — no matter how delicious — will soon be able to partake closer to home. Wednesday, September 21, at 5 p.m., Gov. Peter Shumlin will be on hand as local developers Jay Canning and Chuck DesLauriers break ground on Hotel Vermont, home to Burlington's own location of Hen of the Wood restaurant.

The developers aren't yet willing to comment, nor is Hen of the Wood at the Grist Mill chef-owner Eric Warnstedt. The hotel and restaurant will open in April 2013 at 411 Cherry Street. Hen of the Wood at the Grist Mill in Waterbury will continue to serve its cuisine that earlier this year earned Warnstedt a nomination for the James Beard Foundation's best chef-Northeast.

Hen of the Wood won't be the only place at Hotel Vermont to wine and dine. Juniper Lounge will serve breakfast pastries in the morning, then offer "farm-inspired “carbon-negative” cocktails at night. That's not the only eco-based plan for Canning and DesLauriers — the entire hotel will be LEED-certified. Look for more information on our blog Wednesday night.
