Side Dishes: Logan's of Vermont to open in Burlington


A barrage of yellow greeted passersby on Burlington’s lower Main Street last week. The 30 Main Street space most recently home to Miguel’s on Main is now plastered with yellow papers in each window announcing the upcoming arrival of Logan’s of Vermont. Below the name, the signs simply read, “market cuisine” and “chef-owned and operated.”

That chef is kitchen veteran Nick Logan. He left Cloud 9 Caterers early this year, and his previous employers include Sugarbush, the formal Ethan Allen Club and the ultracasual Church Street Tavern. Still, he says his own dining concept is unlike anything he’s ever done.

Logan’s of Vermont will offer just takeout. “It’s a take-away meal solution where the client can choose the level of effort they want to put in the meal — everything from raw to fully cooked,” Logan explains.

Though the menu isn’t set in stone yet, he’s confident enough in his grilled Cuban sandwich to say it will make the cut. Logan expects to offer five or six panini each day, including simple options such as local cheese on homemade sourdough.

The chef-owner hopes to open by September 1. If all goes well, he plans to make Logan’s increasingly convenient by instituting first online ordering, then delivery. Meanwhile, we’ll have to contemplate those yellow signs for another month or two.
