Sweetwaters, right on Burlington's Church Street, has you covered all day long. $10 lunch specials include a local-beef burger with white-truffle-Parmesan frites. Start your three-course, $25 dinner with housemade charcuterie or Long-Trail-braised mussels. Local ingredients populate the entrées, too, such as a Boyden Farm bistro steak or salmon with Nitty Gritty Grain Co. polenta fries.
The dinner at Trader Duke's is also $25 and locally focused. Start with a spinach-and-pear salad or a Vermont goat-cheese-and-garlic tartlet. Those looking for a taste of the coast can move on to a lobster roll. For simple decadence, try beef stuffed with bacon and veggies or a portobello mushroom Napoleon. For dessert, try the homebaked peach cobbler.
