SEVEN DAYS

L

ocavore cuisine is a trend that’s still catching on in cities across America. Here in the Green Mountains, however, eating low-mileage meals is now the rule, rather than the exception. Savvy Vermont chefs have been working with local farmers and growers for years, sourcing everything from beef to beets to rice and beans. Even greasy spoons have embraced the local fare. At the Parson’s Corner in Barton, chef-owner David Rath cooks local eggs and stuffs sandwiches with house-smoked corned beef in the kitchen of an old parsonage. In suburban South Burlington, hungry crowds form lines out the door of the Parkway Diner, where burgers sizzle on the grill just miles from where the meats were raised and processed. This fine, farm-fresh cuisine has been cropping up in even more unexpected places. In working-class South Barre, you can savor a taste of the East at Rickie’s Indian Restaurant, housed inside a gas station. At South Burlington’s Tilt Classic Arcade and Ale House, the organic, GMO-free wings are served in the company of dozens of vintage pinball machines. Local hops are beginning to make their presence felt amid the state’s craft-brewing boom, and “forgotten” heirloom apple varieties are connecting the growing cider scene with local history. We cover all that and more in 7 Nights, a guide to Vermont’s vibrant dining scene. From house-stuffed bratwurst a stone’s throw from the Canadian border to cheesecake drizzled with root-beer reduction served in a 19th-century mansion in southern Vermont, you won’t have to dig deep into these pages to find a first-class, local, artisanal answer to your cravings. That’s a delicious state of affairs, indeed. HANNAH PALMER EGAN

In May 2014, Brandon’s Foley Brothers Brewing debuted Fair Maiden Double IPA, a delicately flavored powerhouse of a beer. Hoppy but not bitter, with notes of citrus and pine, Fair Maiden won over beer geeks at the Vermont Brewers Festival in July. Word spread, and by December the beer had earned a remarkable score of 98 out of 100 on the beerrating website Beer Advocate.

Brothers Dan and Patrick Foley have been brewing under the family name since 2012. Other beers in their rotation include Maple Brown, 11:12 AM a silky, malty mid-bodied brown ale; and Native Ginger Wheat, a light, easy-drinking brew with a hint of ginger. A love of liquids runs in the Foley family — the brewery began as a side project of Neshobe River Winery, run by parents Robert and Rhonda Foley. Foley beers are informed by their makers’ experience growing, fermenting and conditioning wines; working with yeasts and sugars; and guiding fruit from vine to bottle. Visitors to the shared tasting room — inside an expansive post-and-beam barn beside the family’s charming historic Inn at Neshobe River — get the rare chance to sample beers and wines made on-site. Like many fledgling Vermont wineries, Neshobe has a modest vineyard planted with cold-hardy hybrid varietals such as marquette and frontenac. It supplements its harvest with grapes gleaned from other farms around the region. Home vineyard grapes rule an award-winning 2009 micro-vintage estate rosé. Also worth tasting are the deep, dark Purple Haze, a contemplative red blend; and the lightly acidic White Dog Chardonnay. Perhaps the finest of these wines, the Neshobe Cassis, isn’t made with grapes at all. It’s a sweet, tart dessert wine fermented from black currants. Sample it in the tasting room, or keep on sipping next door as part of a “Libation Vacation” package at the inn. hannah palmer egan

KINGDOMTAPROOM.COM

Fritz Halbedl’s culinary skills have sailed to all corners of the world. Born and raised in Austria, the chef spent more than a decade overseeing the dining program for the Royal Caribbean International fleet. Now he’s dropped anchor in landlocked Vermont, where he serves up European-inflected fare and tales of his globe-trotting adventures. Halbedl and his wife, Paula, bought a stately home on Derby Line’s Main Street several years ago. It was a lot of house for one couple. After restoring the 1901 building to its former glory, they opened the five-room Derby Line Village Inn and lodge-style restaurant in March 2014. Paula welcomes guests with the trademark hospitality of her deep South heritage, while Fritz handles the kitchen. In winter, regulars often arrive by snowmobile; the inn lies a few hundred yards off a popular route. They come for an array of succulent housemade knockwurst 4:42 PM and bratwurst, stuffed into skins that snap with every bite and bedded in mounds of lip-smacking housefermented sauerkraut. Other northern European specialties include schnitzels — tender cuts of chicken, veal or pork lightly breaded and panfried, served with potatoes or vegetables — and platters of roasted meats. All are best enjoyed in true Austrian fashion, with one of the Germanstyle lagers on tap, a number of which hail from Stowe’s Trapp Lager Brewery. Careful, though: These easy-drinking quaffs come in big pours, up to 22 ounces. Additional entrées include steaks — New York strips dryaged 21 days — fish and handmade pastas. Though the food skews meaty and eastern European, Halbedl’s New England and Québec-style dishes are also worth a taste. Poutine — made with hand-cut fries and Vermont curds — comes commingled with sauerbraten or chicken schnitzel. Flatbreads, fresh from an artisanal oven, are long and narrow, crusty and chewy. Order one “hunterstyle,” topped with hearty hunks of venison sausage from nearby Hollandeer Farm, cranberries, arugula, and a blend of Asiago and mozzarella. But a world traveler like Halbedl knows when to stay true to his roots. He wisely does so for dessert, serving what is arguably Vermont’s best strudel. hannah palmer egan

NEWLY EXPANDED MENU!

colatina exit

ALWAYS FRESH & LOCAL PRODUCE!

164 Main St., Bradford, 222-9008, colatinaexit.com The sleepy riverside village of Bradford isn’t known for its tourist attractions. But for more than four decades, out-oftowners — from surrounding areas and farther afield — have made the pilgrimage to dine by candlelight at the Colatina Exit, which serves family-friendly dinners and romance nightly atop gingham tablecloths. Thin pies are the restaurant’s calling. In the back of the house, youthful “pizza boys” hand-throw each one, spinning dough above their heads like so many oldfashioned Luigis. The resulting shell is paper-thin in the center with a springy outer crust that puffs and bubbles in the oven. It’s the kind of doughy delight you’ll want to dip in marinara rather than discard.

Build a custom pizza with toppings ranging from familiar (pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, peppers) to fun (feta, primavera 10:54 AM veggies, roasted garlic). Or choose from one of 14 specialty pies, such as the savory Melanzano Pizzano topped with smoked marinara, baby spinach, caramelized onions, roasted eggplant and fresh mozzarella. Entrées such as the lasagna Bolognese nod to classic Italian American cuisine. Heaping portions come smothered in meaty red sauce, cheese oozing from each layer. Other dishes are more modern: Pan-seared diver scallops are finished with brown butter and ginger and served with crisp risotto cake. A hand-cut New York strip is dry-aged in-house, drizzled with garlic-infused extra-virgin olive oil and scattered with fresh herbs. Just looking for a quick bite and a cold beer on draft? In that case, climb the stairs to the friendly Exit pub, where the full menu is available in a less formal setting. Garlic bread — baked fresh daily at the Colatina Bakery around the corner — is available toasty, with mozzarella tucked between slices. Eat it at an upstairs table near a long row of windows. From this perch, you can take in the view: a sea-green golf course with the slow, south-flowing waters of the Connecticut River visible behind it. Dishing out enchanting food and views, Colatina delivers. hannah palmer egan

The heat of slow-roasting meats hangs heavy at Costello’s Market in Middlebury’s historic Marble Works District. It smells good, too — of pork fat and fennel, tomato and freshly baked bread. No wonder this Italian market earned Yankee magazine’s 2014 designation as the best sub stop in New England. Ask for the porchetta sandwich. A local legend, it’s not on the menu but always available to those in the know. Chef John Hamilton sprinkles flattened pork with fennel seeds and pollen before rolling it up for a 10-hour roast. He serves it straight up on crusty, homemade rolls — no vegetables, cheeses, mustard or mayo required. There are no seats at Costello’s, but you won’t mind eating this Roman creation in the car.

3/4/15 12:51 PM

Market co-owner Carolyn Costello presides over a large case filled with imported Italian meats. She layers nearly all of them in the Tutto Italiano, a symphony of prosciutto di Parma, capicola, salami and aged provolone on a compact roll that soaks up the spice of another key ingredient: banana peppers. Adjacent cases offer house-prepared meals inspired by the old country: lasagna, meat-and-veggie-filled torta rustica and specials such as wine-braised beef braciole. Costello’s other specialty is ultra-fresh, mostly regional seafood. Squid and swordfish are available to take home raw or marinated. Better yet, get them fried. Retirees from the apartments next door are fans of Hamilton’s fried scallop and oyster dinners. Middlebury College students are more likely to crave his giant California fish tacos. Accompanied by veggies and chile mayonnaise, each unusual fried flour tortilla contains a single large filet that most certainly didn’t come from the West Coast. As with the Italian specialties at Costello’s, there is more to those tacos than their provenance. Hamilton’s culinary creations are a testament to his far-reaching imagination.

In the evenings, the lights dim at the New England Culinary Institute’s flagship restaurant, and diners tuck into booths, hungry for sophisticated meals cooked by some of Vermont’s most promising up-and-coming chefs. Students — culinary professionals in training — work the line at Montpelier’s NECI on Main. From start to finish, you’ll know your food is prepared with passion, attention and care. For NECI students, making dinner is more than just a job; it’s their chosen field of study. So you can dine assured that your grilled quail, dusted with sweetly scented Moroccan spices and served with cauliflower couscous, is cooked to just the right temperature. Your saffron-soaked fish soup has been simmered to its savory prime.

By day, the dining room evokes an upscale European bistro. Meals are simple and tailored to picking and snacking. The Ploughman’s Platter is an unpretentious spread of toasted baguette and charcuterie made in culinary class. Offerings might include a peasantstyle slice of bacon-wrapped pork pâté, studded with pistachios; supple slices of smoked country ham; or thin-shaved duck prosciutto. Served with local cheeses, it’s an afternoon entrée best paired with a bottle of dry white wine, slowly sipped — the better to channel your inner Parisian. Don’t have time to dawdle? Diners on the clock can grab a pulled-pork sandwich — tender, stringy meat stuffed into a housemade brioche bun — or a frisée salad topped with caramelized-onion vinaigrette and a flash-seared pat of duck liver. And then there’s Sunday brunch, an award-winning buffet rife with housemade sausage and bacon, salads and egg dishes. Pillowy, perfectly folded omelettes are made to order, stuffed with everything from fresh veggies to house-cured meats. Desserts range from delicate pastries to chai-spiced truffles. For diners, it’s a delicious start to the day. For the cooks dishing it out, it represents the beginning of their culinary careers. hannah palmer egan

TILT tilt CLASSIC classic ARCADE arcade AND and ALE ale HOUSE house 7 Fayette Dr., South Burlington, 489-5350, tiltvt.com

PHOTOS: MATTHEW THORSEN

The rumbles and pings transport you back in time at Tilt Classic Arcade and Ale House. South Burlington’s twofloor pinball paradise twinkles with glowing screens that illuminate the faces of adults and children caught in the act of old-fashioned gaming. But as much as Tilt looks and sounds like the arcades of the 1980s and ’90s, its menu is a modern departure. Tilt proffers wings, yes. But like nearly everything else on offer, they’re organic and GMO-free. You can order them doused in a sauce made from Mayflower Brewing’s porter, which is sure to appeal to the beer fanatics who line up at the long wooden bar. Drafts range from hard-to-find cult brews to Pabst Blue Ribbon. Beers and arcade-themed cocktails — such as Bowser’s Bourbon Tipple — don’t have to be consumed at the bar. Most of the gaming cabinets have built-in cupholders. Chef Thom Corrado’s fare is likewise designed to be eaten on the go, perhaps between stages of The Simpsons or Teenage Mutant 5:47 PM Ninja Turtles. Games such as Altered Beast and Ms. Pac Man may hail from Japan, but Tilt’s cuisine plays with local ingredients. Made with curds from Vermont’s Maplebrook Farm, the fried mozzarella is pinball shaped. The Tilt Burger features a patty of exceptional grass-fed lowline Angus beef from Hinesburg’s Grass Roots Farm. It’s topped with Shelburne Farms cheddar, garlic confit aioli and a single onion ring — a nod to the “one ring” of The Lord of the Rings pinball game upstairs. The local pork burger includes Vermont-grown 5 Knives bacon and the Cellars at Jasper Hill’s Bayley Hazen Blue cheese. It owes its winning streak to a layer of sweet and tangy blueberry-shallot jam. The egg sandwich needs no such condiments. The duck fat in which the egg is fried bestows plenty of flavor on the tender bun and local bacon and cheddar. But the games are the main attraction, and Tilt’s vintage selection allows adults to revisit their childhood favorites. One grown-up advantage: You can sip a spicy Hadoken cocktail while playing Street Fighter II, the game that spawned it. Providing a nostalgic experience with a taste of the future, Tilt’s vision is a total KO.

Save for the cars carrying tourists and a few other modern conveniences, the quiet town of Dorset looks much the same as it did a century ago. An inn since 1900, the elegant Barrows House long served antiquated food to match its historic setting, an early-19th-century manse that was once the town preacher’s home. That changed in 2013, when the Dorset Inn purchased Barrows House and reimagined its dining room. The restaurant is now southern Vermont’s first gastropub, and chef Matt LeRay puts an appropriately luxe twist on the tavern fare. Big-name actors such as Tim Daly and Treat Williams have been spotted here, perhaps after performing at the Dorset Playhouse. Stargaze by the fire pit, or inside at the moody, backlit marble bar. A local quarry supplied the stone, the same that built 4:30 PM the New York Public Library. The bar offers an array of Vermont microbrews, but why squander the bartender’s skill? Have him mix up a maple manhattan using Vermont Spirits Distilling’s bourbon, or a Sazerac combining WhistlePig Rye Whiskey and absinthe. Pair your cocktail with a cone of ultra-thin waffle chips, hot from the fryer and served with creamy chipotle aioli. It’s comfort food that would make anyone’s inner child salivate, yet grown-up enough to stand up to a sophisticated drink. Wings are a staple at most pubs, and Barrows House is no exception. But in LeRay’s kitchen, the meat is duck, confited for optimal tenderness before being fried. Rolled in a spicy ginger sauce, the flesh holds together just until it melts in your mouth. Several appetizers are big enough for a meal. Crispy nachos topped with raw tuna and seaweed salad could easily satisfy a moderate — and perhaps more than moderately adventurous — eater. More interested in the entrées? Indulge in the “steak frites,” actually a juicy filet mignon served in puddles of demi-glace and cheddar fondue, then buried in a layer of matchstick potatoes. For a sweet finale, LeRay and his team may whip up a s’mores tart, complete with torched marshmallows, or a creative cheesecake. We tried one with an intense rootbeer reduction. Whether dinner ends with a stroll on the town’s marble sidewalks or between the sheets of one of the inn’s luxurious rooms, a trip to Barrows House seamlessly melds pleasures past and present. alice levitt PHOtOS: SaraH PrieStaP
