W

hat does it mean to eat in Vermont today? To many diners, it means demanding local, seasonal, responsibly raised food. Others crave meals with a story. Chefs and owners seem happy to oblige, serving farm-fresh fare that honors their own personal heritage and that of these rolling Green Mountains. Thanks to them — and the farmers they work with — our food scene gets more and more interesting every year. The 7 Nights dining guide offers a big helping of what they bring to the table. These days, “heirloom” refers to much more than pricy, funnylooking tomatoes. Across the state, researchers are finding, reclaiming and cultivating seeds that were planted for centuries by Vermont’s Native American communities, while farmers are defaulting to non-GMO, open-pollinated varieties of squash, corn, cabbage and beans. These time-tested cultivars are given special attention at upscale restaurants such as Duo in Brattleboro and Stowe’s Edson Hill. In Reading and West Glover, respectively, Newhall Farm and Sweet Rowen Farmstead are two of several farms working to bring back Vermont’s own Randall Lineback cattle from the brink of extinction — and producing excellent cheeses and meats from these cold-hardy cows. In Pittsfield, chef Kevin Lasko has a habit of buying whole linebacks and using the meat — all of it — for tasting menus at his tiny, hidden-away Backroom restaurant. Global cuisine, too, has taken root in the Green Mountain State — literally. At Saap in Randolph, Nisachon “Rung” Morgan began tending Thai herbs and container citrus when she started having trouble sourcing ingredients for her native Isan cooking. Add to this the wild proliferation of breweries, cideries and distilleries popping up statewide, and you’ve got a very tasty environment, indeed — and one that tends to be socially responsible and environmentally friendly. The logic? It’s a small state, and everyone’s in this together. So pull up a chair and dig in. — HANNAH PALMER EGAN Spring is the perfect time to embark on an eating adventure. The seventh annual VERMONT RESTAURANT WEEK provides the ideal opportunity from April 22 to May 1, 2016. More than 100 restaurants across the state are involved. Check out vermontrestaurantweek.com for the $20, $30 or $40 prix-fixe menus of participating eateries, as well as a full roster of events. There’s something for every taste and budget. So hit the road, celebrate spring and fill up on our state’s incredible fare. ON THE COVER: DOWN HOME KITCHEN PHOTO: JEB WALLACE-BRODEUR

DEPOT62

515 Depot St., Manchester Center, 366-8229, depot62.com At first glance, Depot62 in Manchester Center looks like an eclectic home-furnishings store. Marrying funky antiques with sleek modern designs, its contents range from a handful of tables and mismatched chairs to a lamp constructed from old baseballs. On one wall hangs a shiny objet d’art made from flattened industrial-size metal food cans. On another, handbags suited to hipsters. The floor is dotted with ornate rugs woven of richly colored threads. PHOTOS:TOM TOMMCNEILL MCNEILL PHOTOS:

But there’s something incongruous about those tables in the center of the room: They’re set for dining, with paper napkins and salt and pepper shakers, and it’s not just for show: Depot62 is also a café, offering a small menu of organic veggie dishes, pizzas and Turkish delights. Owner Alp Basdogan hails from the Mediterranean country, where his family runs a rug-making business. He attended college in the U.S. and now sells textiles and other wares in “downtown” Manchester Center, between Starbucks and Northshire Books. Start with hummus or eggplant dip to spread on fresh-baked pita, with a lemony arugula salad on the side. Take your time as you eat, as the staff moves at a languid pace — all the better for diners to discover the store’s many treasures. New details emerge at every turn. The showroom’s stone wall, for instance, contains a wood-fired oven in which the chef blisters simply topped, thin-crusted pizzas. The wild mushroom with caramelized onions and gooey mozzarella is a local favorite. Lamb is the other specialty of the house and finds its pinnacle in the Konya Kebap. Tender chunks of paprikaspeckled meat arrive simmering in a clay pot, alongside hunks of tomato and slivers of raw, spiced onion meant for mixing into the meaty cooking liquid. There’s plenty more homemade pita for sopping up the fragrant juices. You can also get your lamb on pizza or as meatballs. If this food-and-furniture scene sounds crazy, think of IKEA. The world’s largest furniture retailer, which believes shoppers should never be hungry, sells an average of 1,836,000 Swedish meatballs a day. SUZANNE PODHAIZER

A Culinary Destination

ELIXIR

188 S. Main St., White River Junction, 281-7009, elixirrestaurant.com From the 1840s to the 1960s, White River Junction thrived as a rail town. But when those industrial glory days faded, residents were forced to reinvent the place — and they got creative. Home to two professional theater companies, a cartoon school, the new River Roost Brewery and countless artists, the Junction is surprisingly hip these days. Elixir, in an old freight house just off the main drag, reflects its rebirth. The railroad tracks behind it lend the restaurant a gritty authenticity. Inside, the brick walls are weathered and patchy, but the exposed beams and chipped paint make the space more stylish than seedy. Patrons sip cocktails at a corner bar fashioned from wood scarred by untold industrial traumas.

Walk into Max’s Tavern for Dinner Tues-Sat 5-9 Distinguished Wedding & Event Catering 802.234.9961 — barnardinn.com Vt. Rt. 12, Barnard, VT 05031 (10 miles from Woodstock)

As befits a place named Elixir, those cocktails go down easy — they’re made with quality spirits, and 5:08 PM none is more than $8.50. A lemon-thyme martini sips like an herbaceous adult lemonade, while a vodka Arlini-tini tempers a warm shot of ginger with a sour squeeze of lime. The wine list is extensive and approachable, with lots of affordable bottles (and a few high-end ones) that play nice with the menu. Elixir co-owner and resident wine expert Skip Symanski knows his list inside and out and seems to take genuine pleasure in walking guests through the selections. Bartenders dispense similarly candid advice to beer drinkers. Like the drink options, the seasonally changing menu is fun and unassuming. A smooth scoop of truffled chickenliver mousse comes scattered with fried capers and chive chiffonade, adding zing to the standard liver-on-toast combo. A crisp spinach salad, tossed in winey mustard vinaigrette, is studded with sweet-tart cranberries and pickled delicata squash. Entrées come from land or sea and might include a bright white fillet of pan-roasted Arctic char with its skin browned to a toasty crackle, plated atop a bed of roast-y parsnip purée. A fall-off-the-bone pork shoulder, on a schmear of smoky ancho-tomato coulis, warms from the inside out on a cold night. In summer, finish with a fudgy ice cream sandwich and sally forth into the Upper Valley eve. The Connecticut River is just yards away. If you listen closely, you might just hear the distant whistle of a train. HANNAH PALMER EGAN

THE DINER

Since the 1930s, the little yellow building next to Middlebury’s Town Hall Theater has gone by many names: the Val-Do-Mar, the Park Diner and Steve’s Park Diner. In 2014, it became known simply as the Diner. Under new owners Caetlin Harwood and Carl Roesch, the greasy spoon is decidedly less greasy — and more gourmet. The married duo met while working at Vergennes’ luxe Basin Harbor Club. Though there’s nothing fancy about the down-home fare and no-frills setting of the Diner, Roesch’s cooking reveals an inventiveness and attention to detail more commonly found in fine dining. Seasoned to perfection, the burger here is served on a golden and glistening challah roll. Add bacon; it’s griddled to a satisfying, fatty shatter. Roesch’s homemade hot sauce — a nod to his native South African cuisine — packs a wallop. With finely chopped yellow, red and green peppers, it resembles a multicolored giardiniera and adds serious heat to burgers, eggs and crisp sweetpotato fries. The Yum Yum Naan needs no such condiment. Filled with tangy, garlicky pulled beef and crunchy Asian slaw, the warm pita has plenty of punch on its own. The eclectic menu extends to breakfast, at which the Diner truly shines. Take a seat next to an old-school mural of short-order cooks, waitresses and hungry guests, and order a stuffed French toast. The Elvis predictably includes the King’s favorite combo: peanut butter and bananas. A clever twist on jalapeño poppers, the Popper melds cream cheese, bacon and jalapeño jam in a sweet-and-salty French toast. Pulling double duty, the Captain could easily sail at breakfast or dessert. Drenched in a cinnamon-speckled batter and drizzled with buttery caramel, the toast melts inside a crackly coat of coconut flakes and Cap’n Crunch cereal. On a menu full of elevated classics, this sugar high soars. For most of a century, loyal customers have relied on this space for morning meals of coffee and toast. Dishes at the Diner are nothing like those breakfast basics — they’re better. ALICE LEVITT

SAAP

50 Randolph Ave., Randolph, 565-8292, saaprestaurant.com

PHOTOS: BEN DEFLORIO

Randolph is a long way from Isan, a once-impoverished and not particularly touristy part of Thailand that borders Laos and Cambodia. Dishes from that region are often spicy and pungent. Because wood for cooking is scarce there, raw and pickled items abound. The married co-owners of Saap are passionate about sharing the little-known Thai cuisine, which is just beginning to trend in the U.S. Native Nisachon “Rung” Morgan grew up in Isan and left to work at a restaurant in Bangkok. She met her husband, Steve, on Match.com Thailand. A former

instructor at the New England Culinary Institute, he loved Thai food and had been studying Buddhism when he joined the site. Steve corresponded online with Rung for more than a year before traveling to Thailand to meet her. A January evening in Vermont finds him waiting tables at Saap and offering exuberant descriptions of the dishes. Some of the more exotic items are specials: crispy duck heads, stir-fried morning glory with garlic. For those who prefer a more familiar meal, however, there are many of the Thai dishes you know and love: spring rolls, pad Thai, drunken noodles and, of course, fried banana topped with ice cream and chocolate sauce. But there’s a subset of dishes that are neither wellknown in Vermont nor particularly outlandish. Isan-style pork sausages laced with dill, lemongrass and garlic, and served with a chile dipping sauce, are deliciously herbal and bursting with flavor. Vietnamese catfish is coated with housemade curry paste, rolled in banana leaf and grilled. The leaf, imparting a mild flavor, keeps the fish moist as it cooks. In the States, som tum salad — made of green papaya, green bean and tomato, dressed with lime and fish sauce — usually comes with peanuts and optional dried shrimp. Saap’s nut-free variation swaps briny blue crab for the shrimp and adds a tangier sauce. The seafood tom yum — packed with shrimp, squid and mussels — is another winner. Wash it down with fresh-squeezed limeade, a craft beer or house-roasted coconut water dotted with coconut bits that swoop up your straw like the tapioca in bubble tea. Then start planning your next visit. SUZANNE PODHAIZER

At Down Home Kitchen, the inspiration is unmistakably southern, a cuisine central Vermonters have been craving since Plainfield’s River Run closed its doors. The cooks here turn out flavorful soul food and perfect biscuits, and owner Mary Alice Proffitt greets guests warmly at the door. Slender and energetic in a spotless apron, the Georgia native drawls, “How y’all doin’ today?” before offering a barstool or asking if you’re feeling social enough to join folks at the sometimes-boisterous communal table. Wherever you land, say “hey” to a bottomless cup of coffee, made from beans roasted at East Calais’ Bohemian Bakery. The menu arrives, perhaps alongside a bracing Bloody Mary served in a mason jar. One staple is the Southern: fried chicken with eggs and cheesy grits or home fries. Then there’s the cornmeal-dredged Jimmy’s Fried Catfish, a gustatory nod to River Run’s former owner, Jimmy PHOTOS: PHOTOS: JEB JEB WALLACE-BRODEUR WALLACE-BRODEUR

Kennedy. Crisp on the outside and juicy in the middle, the fish comes as part of a breakfast plate and, at lunchtime, can be paired with tangy coleslaw and a scoop of shockingly yellow but delicately flavored mac and cheese. Those regulars are worth coming back for. But at Down Home, the specials are truly special. One Saturday’s shrimp with grit cakes came garnished with zesty chowchow and a rich, chile-spiked tomato gravy that was platelicking good. The next day, there was meatloaf, studded with aromatic vegetables and served with gooey caramelized onions and smoked tomato aioli. If you manage to clear your plate, you’ll likely be too full for dessert — but that’s what to-go boxes are for. Fill yours with a slice of pecan pie, a gooey cinnamon roll, a wedge of chocolate layer cake or a few fresh doughnuts. After a hearty dose of comfort food and southern hospitality, it can be jarring to open the door and realize you’re still in Vermont. Here, there’s no place like Down Home. SUZANNE PODHAIZER

PROHIBITION PIG

23 S. Main St., Waterbury, 244-4120, prohibitionpig.com Locals were devastated when Tropical Storm Irene submerged much of Waterbury’s downtown in August 2011. The area took years to recover — local state offices didn’t reopen until December 2015 — and many businesses never rebuilt. One of the more crushing casualties was the Alchemist brewpub on Main Street. The Alchemist continued brewing after the flood — its cans of Heady Topper are among Vermont’s most coveted beers — but folks mourned the demise of their beloved tasty gathering place. Whatever moved into 23 Main would have a hard act to follow. But when Prohibition Pig opened in early 2012, the new restaurant drew lines around the block as valley residents clamored for a taste of chef Michael Werneke’s Yankeesouthern fare.

His menu is grounded in local livestock, smoked low and slow in-house. Sandwiches come heaped with chopped 1:28 PM smoked pork and Carolina slaw, or tender brisket and onion rings. Juicy grass-fed burgers can be topped with pimiento cheese, fried green tomatoes, house-pickled veggies or sriracha aioli. Buns arrive crowned with a jaunty pickle and sided with crisp shoestring or duck-fat fries. Most of the meats are also available as supper plates, served with fried hush puppies and two of the 10 sides on offer — think creamy cheddar grits, blackened green beans and potato salad. The Pig’s atmospheric bar is popular for modern spins on classics such as the negroni, the daiquiri and the old fashioned. Twenty-two draft brews represent Vermont’s best breweries, including Hill Farmstead, Lawson’s Finest Liquids and Fiddlehead. House beers compose up to half of the list — brewer Nate Johnson’s Bantam double and multigrain IPAs are reliable hoppy favorites. For more where that came from, head to the brewery, located directly behind the restaurant on Elm Street. Fans of darker beers shouldn’t miss the porter or Downtown Piggy Brown. Drinking with lunch or dinner? The small menu of Latin American delights ranges from parchmentthin tortilla chips with just-smashed guacamole to bowls of pozole swimming with chewy boiled corn, smoked pork, avocado and cilantro. Tacos cradle smoked chicken, pork or beef along with fresh cheeses, veggies and salsas. Both the restaurant and brewery proudly fulfill the promise of their sidewalk signage: “Meat Here.” Once again, Waterbury’s community has an excellent excuse to pig out together. HANNAH PALMER EGAN

4182 Waterbury-Stowe Road Route 100 North Waterbury Center (802) 244-7476

When arriving after dark at Stowe’s historic Edson Hill inn, it’s easy to let your imagination run wild. As you follow curving, well-lit paths to the inviting Manor House, you’re suddenly a member of British royalty returning to your estate. Even the front door — tall and imposing solid wood — says “Welcome home” rather than “Thank you for joining us.” Inside, guests sit in the lounge, enjoying the crackling fire and playing games of Scrabble. The host will take your coat and lead the way to your table in the dining room, or downstairs to the tavern for a creative predinner drink such as the Autumn Sling. Pairing cherry cordial with lime, pineapple and vodka, it’s juicy but not too sweet. All beige and cream tones, the dining room is perfectly appointed. Plush pillows dot a comfortable banquette. A twisty tree branch, dripping with delicate crystal orbs and teardrops, hangs over the long, central table. The menu emphasizes seafood, so order accordingly. An oysters Rockefeller special arrives with five plump, smoking-hot, extra-cheesy mollusks, their half shells nestled into a bed of lemony frisée. Next come crème fraîche-drizzled smoked-jalapeño crab cakes, which a woman seated nearby

proclaims are the best she’s ever eaten. Seafood chowder, laced with bacon and loaded with lobster, clams, mussels and chunks of potato, is thick enough to count as a stew. Despite the refined setting, the portions are surprisingly hearty, suited to diners who have spent the day skiing, snowshoeing or paddling. Shepherd’s pie — the legit version made with lamb — fills a bowl with shredded meat, French-cut green beans, mirepoix and gravy. The requisite mashed potatoes are piled in the center, rather than spread on top casserole-style. Elk osso bucco, with its marrowfilled bone and rich, clingy demi-glace, is complemented by roasted sweet potatoes. You can choose to stay over — or, driving into the night, replete with leftovers, find comfort knowing that you’re always invited back. SUZANNE PODHAIZER

KINGDOM TAPROOM

397 Railroad St., St. Johnsbury, 424-1355, kingdomtaproom.com There’s more to St. Johnsbury than meets the eye. The town has had its challenges — evidenced by some empty storefronts — yet a quirky community vibrancy prevails. You’ll find it at the Fairbanks Museum & Planetarium, home to the world’s largest collection of taxidermy hummingbirds, and at Gatto Nero Press, a printmaking studio and coffee shop. Then there’s Catamount Arts Center, boasting area resident (and Grammy nominee) Neko Case as a member of its advisory council.

It tastes better when you shorten the distance between the field and the fork. So come to the table for local food. Dig in to Newport.

46 Log Yard Drive Hardwick, VT www.caledoniaspirits.com Untitled-5 1

It’s a town where you can shop for oil paints, organic produce, poultry feed and Carhartts 4:42 PM on the same street. Also on that street: Kingdom Taproom, which deftly reflects the Northeast Kingdom’s hardscrabble reality of life and a thriving creative scene. Its nine owners, locals hailing from different backgrounds, are united in the goal of helping revitalize St. J. The 12-tap pub has been a community hub since its 2014 opening, gracefully straddling the line between quality and affordability. It hosts live music, showcases local comedians and encourages families to stop by, especially on Wednesdays, when kids are served for free. Bartenders pour brews from Stone, Founders and Citizen Cider — no Bud here — without a hint of snobbery. The food is down-to-earth, too, featuring some local ingredients without making a big deal about it. Sandwiches form the backbone of the menu, from the vegetarian Green Machine — loaded with peppers, squash, sun-dried tomato, pesto and cheese — to the roast-beef panino. You can get ’em gluten-free. For something more decadent, order the mac and cheese with tender pulled pork. Mismatched bar seats and tables, cool art, funky Edison bulbs, and homey carpets make for a chill and welcoming vibe. You want a PBR, and your friend wants a bottle of hardto-find Hill Farmstead saison? You want a charcuterie board with duck pastrami and smoked boar, and your friend wants a crock of cheesy Buffalo-chicken dip? You’re both in luck at Kingdom Taproom. SUZANNE PODHAIZER

RUSTIC ROOTS

195 Falls Rd., Shelburne, 985-9511, rusticrootsvt.com Human nature is such that what is rare tends to be tantalizing. Rustic Roots in Shelburne works that psychology to its advantage. Although the intimate restaurant serves breakfast and lunch Wednesday through Sunday, it limits dinner to a brief window on Friday and Saturday evenings, between 6 and 7:30 p.m. Those lucky enough to score a table are advised to start the evening with a Dirty Jersey Martini or the Roots Negroni, sweetly bitter with a splash of St-Germaine, a liqueur made with elderflower blossoms. While sipping, examine the art on the dining room’s darkred walls. The eatery also serves as a gallery, showcasing a different artist every two months. Last fall featured John W. Long of Newfane, who turns weathered barn boards into sculptural depictions of lighthouses, covered bridges and steeples. His work transforms the quotidian into art. PHOTOS: BRENT HARREWYN

Chef Mike Orfan does the same with simple, seasonal 11:22 AM ingredients. With thoughtful twists, he elevates dishes above the ordinary without making them inaccessible. An autumnal salad mixes classic ingredients such as cranberries, orange segments and candied walnuts, but it also highlights crisp chicory and unusual caraway vinaigrette. Velvety and perfectly seasoned chicken-liver mousse, served in a mason jar, comes with apple chutney and housemade rye bread. The entrées are just as creatively balanced as the starters. The richness of braised pork shank is cut with sweet and acidic cider gastrique, while parsnip and sweet potato deliver on earthiness. Roasted monkfish — the meatiest of all seafood — leans more savory, with briny capers and nutty browned butter. If you can’t swing dinner, try breakfast or lunch. The Rustic Breakfast plate, the morning best seller, features two eggs and two meats — homemade coffee-maple sausage and Canadian ham — plus a tender, herbed popover. At midday, you can find some of the same dishes featured at dinner, including chickenconfit salad and pumpkin croque monsieur topped with crushed hazelnuts and melted Shelburne Farms cheddar. Whichever meal brings you there, expect Rustic Roots to stay true to its name, reinventing hearty favorites and preparing them with heart. SUZANNE PODHAIZER
