Another DELICIOUS reason to love B-town!
Mmmmmm!!! Burlington, VT has made yet another "top ten" list...and this one I can personally attest to! Sperling's "Best Places" recently named America's Best "Foodie" Cities, and lil' ol' BTV made the #3 spot on the list (just behind Santa Rosa/Napa, CA and Portland, OR)! To read the article on Burlington's latest accolade that was featured in the Burlington Free Press this morning, click here.
In compiling the "ten best", Sperling's Best Places looked at 379 metro areas across the U.S. Not suprising to locals, Burlington had a high ratio of local eateries in comparison to chain restaurants; 84.5% of our restaurants are local eateries! CNBC- which features Sperling's list- cited favorites such as American Flatbread (the perfect place to grab a bite after a day on the slopes), Penny Cluse Cafe (I can taste the biscuits and herb gravy now), and the Bluebird Tavern. In addition to restuarants, Sperling also took into account the presence of breweries, brew pubs, wine bars, farmers markets, and community supported agriculture.
To see the entire list, and find out more about how Sperling compiled the list, check out Sperling's Best Places. My stomach is officially growling now...I think it's time to grab some lunch....maybe a little something from The Spot??!
