During Restaurant Week, you'll find all kinds of dining options, including some seriously tasty pub fare. At Rí Rá Irish Pub in Burlington and Morgan's Pub & Grill at the Three Stallion Inn in Randolph, nursing a cold pint in one hand while chowing down with the other is considered de rigueur.
At Rí Rá, do some people watching on Church Street as you munch on deep-fried artichoke hearts or grilled shrimp with fennel slaw, and follow it up with, say, some sirloin steak with house fries or a three-mushroom-roasted-Florentine with herbed polenta. The $25 dinner menu ends with a choice of two desserts — though who could resist a Bailey's chocolate mousse?
The views at the Three Stallion Inn are of verdant fields and mountains — and the $25 Restaurant Week menu is totally gastropub, from marinated Vermont goat cheese with sun-dried tomato on a toasted baguette to cider-brined pork tenderloin in a Vermont mustard-maple glaze. At dessert, try the playful mini-cupcake trio or celebrate spring with a strawberry-rhubarb crisp.
