Hen of the Wood — In 2013, the beloved Waterbury restaurant duplicated its rustic feel, legendary wine list and creative locavore cuisine at Burlington's Hotel Vermont. The bar is open for cocktails and craft brews until midnight.
Blue Paddle Bistro — This artsy eatery has a wooden canoe suspended over the bar and a devoted following for its innovative yet unpretentious cuisine. Think Gorgonzola-crusted filet mignon and crab cakes with chutney-mango tartar.
