What a deal
Vermont Restaurant Week is in full swing through Sunday. You still have plenty of time to stop at one of your favorite local restaurants — or eat out multiple times, there's no judging here! — and enjoy a multi-course meal, priced at $20, $30 or $40 per person.
It is highly suggested you call ahead and make a reservation, letting the host or hostess know you are coming for restaurant week. When you arrive, ask for the "Restaurant Week" menu. Some places offer lunch, brunch or breakfast specials.
In southern Vermont you have nine restaurants to choose from, including duo Restaurant, Peter Havens, Popolo, Blue Moose Bistro Italian Restaurant, Superfresh! Organic Café, The Tavern Restaurant, Fireworks Restaurant, Hazel and Whetstone Station Restaurant & Brewery.
