Thanks for helping us raise $95,375.32 (and counting) for the Vermont Foodbank during the last 10 years. Let’s keep it up!


CHEERS TO 10 YEARS! BY COREY GRENIER, MARKETING & EVENTS DIRECTOR SEVEN DAYS / VERMONT RESTAURANT WEEK

When I tell people I organize Vermont Restaurant Week, their first question is always, “Which restaurant should I go to?” My answer is, “Beauty is in the belly of the beholder.” Seriously, there are so many options to choose from that it can be hard to choose. Luckily for you, this gal is a seasoned (see what I did there — food pun) Restaurant Week veteran, and I’m here to help you make the most of this 10-day adventure. But first, did you know that Vermont Restaurant Week is celebrating its 10th year? That’s right, 10 years of deliciousness. We couldn’t have done it without you. Thanks for supporting local businesses, helping us raise $95,375.32 (and counting) for the Vermont Foodbank, and coming back hungry for more each year. Special thanks goes to the Vermont Federal Credit Union, our presenting sponsor from the very start! If you’re new to this event, welcome! Here’s how it works: For 10 days, April 26 through May 5, more than 100 restaurants from Brattleboro to St. Albans will offer special prix-fixe dinners at three price points — $20, $30 or $40 per person. Breakfast, brunch and lunch specials at select locations will also be available. The diversity of cuisines at participating restaurants makes it easy for all diners to find something to whet their appetite. Before you dig in, here are my top-10 tips to nibble on…

1

Grab a pair of scissors, a pen and maybe some Post-it notes before you snuggle up to this guide. These tools will help you keep track of your favorite menus. Pro tip: Use the index and handydandy planner on page 8 to stay super organized.

2

Is your sister a vegetarian? No problem. Use the search tool on vermontrestaurantweek.com to browse restaurants by region, cuisine type, price and meals served. Even the pickiest of eaters will find this feature satisfying.

3

It’s better to be safe than sorry! Once you’ve narrowed down your favorite menus, make a reservation. Not all restaurants take them, but we suggest calling ahead.

4

Can’t make it to dinner? Some restaurants are offering breakfast, lunch and brunch specials, too. If you’re feeling feisty, you could eat out for every meal! Whoa.

5

Treat yourself! Restaurant Week is a great excuse to sample the tastes of Vermont with a hot date or with friends.

WHO’S GOT THE RECIPE FOR SUCCESS? As you flip through this guide, take note of menus that excite and entice your taste buds! This year we invite you to tell us who the real taste makers are by voting for your favorite menus during Vermont Restaurant Week.

THE CATEGORIES ARE • Most creative theme • Most likely to make your [vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, etc…] friend happy • Most motivating offer

NEW CONTEST!

The restaurants put a lot of love into their menus. Now show them some love. Go to vermontrestaurantweek.com and write in your nominations by Sunday, May 5, at 5 p.m. You can only vote once per category, so make it count. All participants will be entered to win a gift card to a local restaurant.

TO BENEFIT

6

Throughout the week there are several special events, including the Sweet Start Smackdown, Pints & Poses Yoga, the Sensory Social, a Culinary Trivia Night, the Dish and cooking classes (see page 6).

7

If your dining companion isn’t interested in the official Restaurant Week menu, never fear! Most restaurants will be serving their full menus in addition to their special offerings, so there will be plenty to choose from.

8 9

Post to social media or it didn’t happen! Share your dining adventures with the world and remember to use #vtrestoweek. Road trip? Winter is over, so take the highway — or the back way — to a new dining destination. You can check off some towns on your 251 list along the way!

10

Forget about the calories and have a pair of sweatpants handy.

SPECIAL EVENTS SCHEDULE The Wild World of Fermentation WEDNESDAY, MAY 1, 5:30-7 P.M., ARTSRIOT, BURLINGTON

Fermented food and beverages have recently risen in popularity, but the ancient technique has been around since the Stone Age. Traditionally used as a means to preserve food, the technology has evolved to encompass a broad range of flavors and products while shaking up the culinary landscape. From bread to beer, kombucha to kimchi, fermentation plays a role in much of the food and drink we consume each day. Join us for a special Restaurant Week edition of the Dish to explore the wild world of fermentation. We’ll hear from brewers, farmers, chefs and business owners about their experiences with fermented products while exploring claimed health benefits, opportunities to preserve local food, and whether this food trend is here to stay. Special thanks to City Market, Onion River Co-op and the Intervale Center. $5 suggested donation (benefits the Vermont Foodbank). Register at vermontrestaurantweek.com.
