Vermont Culinary FavoritesThe Greater Burlington area has no shortage of fantastic restaurants. From fine dining to local pubs; Asian, French, or Italian cuisine - your appetite will be forever satisfied. Vermont is home to the New England Culinary Institute, one of the finest culinary art schools. Many great chefs have stayed & opened their own fantastic restaurants here - much to our culinary delight. We are also fortunate to have state-wide programs, like the Vermont Fresh Network, designed to increase the amount of locally grown food served at restaurants across the state. When you dine out in Greater Burlington area, be sure to look for the Vermont Fresh Network seal.
