Misery Loves Co. Opens in Winooski


The blurry shot above mirrors the buzzy energy inside Misery Loves Co. late this morning, less than an hour after it opened inside the ex-Don Pedro's Taqueria space in Winooski. 

Gone are the wild parrot hues of the previous tenants; they've been replaced by cool, white walls and tile, a pale, zigzag wood floor, and vintage pendant lamps. By 11:30 a.m., all of the nine or so tables were filled, oversize sandwiches were flying off the grill and the only memory of the former tenants was a small tray of hot sauces. 

The opening day menu resembled a carbon copy of thejet-black chalkboard that used to hang on the side of Big Red. Seven sandwichesincluded the fatty and sweet PB&J — grilled pork belly, tomato jam and dandeliongreens — and a riff on the Reuben called a Dunnsky, with corned beef,sauerkraut and raclette. 

Now, though, visitors can wash down their porchetta sandwiches with something stronger than Limonata. A separate board lists Spanish and Italian wines by the glass; ahandful of beers (including Trapp Family Lodge Brewery's Vienna Lager and St-Ambroise Oatmeal Stout); CitizenCider from Essex; and a clutch of sodas.

For now, MLC is serving lunch only, Mondaysthrough Saturdays, with dinner service to follow in December. You can find them at 46 Main St.
