But how often do you see two delectable but very different takes on that classic Italian sauce, ragú?

At Shelburne's La Villa Vistro & Pizzeria, the chef will put together a spicy shrimp ragú served over creamy polenta with fresh corn, scallions and crème fraiche; but that's only one of three main courses on the $25 dinner menu — pasta boscaiola and roasted porchetta are up for grabs, too, as well as an array of delectable starters and desserts.

The Starry Night Café in Ferrisburgh is an intoxicating place — and friendly to vegetarians, too. Case in point is their sunchoke, roasted tomato and asparagus ragú, served over a grilled-Parmesan-polenta cake with wilted greens and shaved Vermont Ayr tomme. It's not the only jaw-dropping morsel on this seasonal, $35 menu: also on tap are warm sweet pea soup with saffron-Vermont-goat-cheese crostini; grilled pork loin with Green Mountain blue-cheese mashed potatoes, wilted greens, and maple-rhubarb chutney; and strawberry-rhubarb crisp.
