top ten tuesdays - waterfront dining

when you hear the words "water front dining" you probably don't think about restaurants in vermont. but alas, you're wrong. i took the lead from the recent issue of yankee magazine with their recommendations on the best spots to enjoy a meal lake (or river, or creek, or brook side) because in my opinion, food tastes better when served with water view...whether or not there is salt in the air.
top ten waterfront restaurants...
  1. simon pearce, quechee - by now you know how i feel about this place. a little piece of riverside heaven.
  2. hen of the wood, waterbury - the menu changes daily to highlight fresh, local ingredients, but the view of thatcher brook remains a constant delight.
  3. lake morey resort, fairlee - a family getaway that comes to life in the summer months. dinner is served nightly at water's edge.
  4. tully and marie's, middlebury - hands down winner for the best pad thai, bloody mary and breakfast burrito. the view of otter creek isn't bad either.
  5. the north end hero house, north hero - you can dine on the patio, the porch, the greenhouse, or the main dinning room...all with water views. perfect for a weekend visit - breakfast, lunch & dinner.
  6. the inn at shelburne farms, shelburne - everyone needs to have brunch here at some point in their lifetime. it's that good.
  7. splash at the boathouse, burlington - drinks served on a floating dock on lake champlain? heaven. the countdown is on for opening day on may 15th.
  8. west river marina, brattleboro - burgers, fries and a famous sunset. plus, they have an event every summer called marinafest. sign me up.
  9. storm cafe, middlebury - the penne carbonara and the view from the patio overlooking otter creek might just change your life.
  10. breakwaters, burlington - it's not summer without a trip to breakwaters. best sunset in town, or the state for that matter. the people watching is pretty darn good too.

also, have you ever been to Alici's Bistro in Brattleboro? That's my favorite waterfront restaurant here.
