Bistro in Burlington

Housed in a beautifully refurbished former hotel with high coffered ceilings, leather couches and antique lighting running the length of the bar, this unpretentious family-run spot serves killer seafood chowder and a multitude of other American classics – NY strip steaks, burgers, green-tomato BLTs, shrimp and grits – with a few wild cards thrown in, such as homemade pierogi and Cuban sandwiches.
