The Best Vermont Restaurants You’ve Never Heard Of
There is no shortage of excellent restaurants in Vermont. I’m not talking just farm-to-table, splurge-worthy restaurants either. From divey taco shops (looking at you, Mad Taco) to wood-fired burger joints (hello, Worthy Burger) to beer bars with the best nachos you’ll ever eat (I’m coming for you, Blackback Pub), Vermont boasts a wide selection of kick-ass eateries.
Vermont’s restaurants are just one of the reasons why Vermont really is the best place to live (and visit). Vermont has attracted many talented chefs who traded the hustle and bustle of city life in New York, Montreal or other foodie destinations around the world to embrace the eat-local, grow-your-own mentality that defines Vermont restaurants and Vermont as a whole.

275 Main, Warren, Vermont: You might be scratching your head right now thinking, where in the heck is there a restaurant in Warren that would top a list of best Vermont restaurants? Located in The Pitcher Inn, 275 Main is by far Vermont’s best hidden dining treasure. The crisp white linens and candlelight in the romantic setting, paired with the very best service of any restaurant in Vermont, complements the cuisine coming from the kitchen of Chef Sue Schickler. Her dishes are unique, playful and thoroughly toothsome. The quail appetizer, currently marinated in sumac and paired with minted barley, braised radishes and cucumbers in a tahini sauce, will make you rethink your disdain for quail and their tiny bones. Chef Sue’s homemade pasta will make you feel as if you’ve landed in a mom-and-pop, hole-in-the-wall in Sicily. In case you’re looking for a more laid-back dining experience with high-end pub fare, Tracks just downstairs from 275 Main is a must. Don’t miss the sinfully delicious homemade potato chip nachos.
