Explore the Culinary World of Vermont’s NEK
The restaurants in Newport, Vermont have claimed much of the town’s historic Main Street. Taking advantage of the free parking areas, the beautiful Lake Memphremagog, and the fantastic boardwalk along its shores, Newport’s downtown provides a great date night or traveler’s checkpoint. Restaurants farther away from the downtown area offer great views, unique menu items, and outstanding outdoor dining spaces.
The restaurants in Saint Johnsbury take advantage of the beautiful old buildings of this factory town. Scattered throughout town, restaurants here are located in basements of industrial buildings, in old store fronts, and a few repurposed locations. The area is home to internationally inspired cuisine and home-style favorites. This town is known for its pop up food scene, with food trucks and amaing chefs taking over kitchens one or more night a week.
Burke restaurants sport hearty pub food and a beautiful location where you can spend the day relaxing and eating. Restaurants in Danville have a down home, diner feel where everyone seems to know everyone else’s name, but the food that graces the plates of these establishments will blow your taste buds away. The restaurants of Hardwick, Glover, Barton, Orleans, Westmore, Lowell, Jay, Island Pond, and even Peacham will shock and awe travelers and locals alike as culinary masterpieces leave kitchens created by experienced chefs that have been inspired by the quality of Vermont’s ingredients.
And, all of the NEK (and Vermont for that matter) is known for it’s local cheese and craft breweries – all of which are supported by the restaurants of the area – so be sure to give them a try.
