Vermont Restaurant Week

This year was the second annual Seven Days Vermont Restaurant Week, to benefit the Vermont Foodbank.

Last year, I dropped the ball and didn’t make it out to a single restaurant during the promotion, so this year I was determined to get to at least one.  In fact, I made it out to two–Farmhouse Tap and Grill and Michael’s on the Hill.  I had been to both of these restaurants before last week, but I will say that the special Restaurant Week tasting menus made for a better gastro-experience this time around.

And now, in pictures, the Maple and Ramp Tasting Menu at Michael’s…

Phil with the Rabbit and Ramp Terrine with maple mustard.

Maple-Smoked Vermont Trout with heirloom-bean salad and pickled-ramp crème fraîche…YUMMY!

Maple Glazed Pork Loin with potato-ramp roesti and creamed mushrooms.

And Maple Pudding with rhubarb compote, Chantilly cream and maple sugar.

Special thanks to Seven Days for again including the Foodbank in Vermont Restaurant Week!
