American Flatbread at 115 St Paul St, Burlington, VT 05401 is one of the restaurants I come to every time I visit Burlington. It has such a charm to it, the food is wonderful, and the prices are very reasonable. Normally I visit in the wintertime so it was a pleasant surprise to have outdoor seating on the patio! It was a rare warm night in April so we took full advantage of American Flatbread’s dining al fresco!
We arrived at around 9PM on a Saturday and it was late enough that it wasn’t busy — surprisingly. We sat down and the service was amazing. Quickly we had our beers (cold and delicious) and never did the glass run completely dry – the server was right there to ask us if we wanted another. And we did!
The food was perfect, a simple flatbread called “Medicine Wheel” which is their wood-fired pizza with cauldron organic tomato sauce baked with mozzarella, italian grana padano cheese and fresh herbs. It was the perfect meal for two to share. We did not leave hungry, that’s for sure!
The flatbread was only $15 for the large and again it was enough to feed both of us so it was a great value. The ambiance outside was incredible and I know from previous visits that inside is great as well. There’s a reason why this place has been a favorite of mine every time I come to Burlington… and this time did not disappoint in any way!
I recently had the pleasure of dining at The Farmhouse Tap & Grill in Burlington VT. Every time I visit Vermont, I try and go to at least one different restaurant along with my old favorites. This time The Farmhouse Restaurant was the choice for something new. It’s right off The Church Street Marketplace located at 160 Bank Street right in downtown Burlington. Easy to get to. I used Uber which was super convenient! Everything in the Church Street area is super close and fun.
The location is perfect, the ambiance was amazing, we used Yelp’s “click ahead seating” and the table was ready by the time we got there. Now THAT was perfect timing. We had the onion rings for an appetizer and they were lightly breaded and delicious. I really wanted the fish and chips but when you go and look up the reviews, it didn’t really look like many people raved about it. What they DID, however, rave about was the pork burger. The Vermont Heritage Burger. I did not get the egg although my friend did. While they looked small, they were both very filling. Was it the best burger ever? I can’t say that. It was good, for sure. But at $16 I guess I had little higher hopes for it. And instead of the egg, they said I could substitute another topping … like bacon. “Sure, Bacon!” i said. It came with a single strip of bacon. The fries were good, the cole slaw was freshly made, the salad was nice and light – most of the meal was very good … it just wasn’t 5 STAR EXCELLENT.
I wanted to absolutely love this place. And between the ambiance and the good beer selection (especially the local VT beers!) I absolutely would return. Would I order a $16 burger from The Farmhouse? Probably not.
