1) Ravenous Pig
This locally-owned gastropub cooks up some of the highest quality eats in town. Have a seat at the wooden bar or grab a high top table with some friends. If weather permits, we suggest heading outside where you can sit in the beer garden and watch your meal cook in the slow cooker. There are several savory pub fare dishes including Gruyere Biscuits topped with Vermont Creamery butter and smoked sea salt. The Pig Tails, cinnamon-sugar tossed fritters served with chocolate espresso sauce, appeal to those with a sweet tooth.
With an amazing Spanish-inspired atmosphere, live music and tapas style menu there’s no going wrong with Ceviche. Food presentation is both unique and unexpected and is sure to appease even the toughest of food critics. The menu has over 100 different tapas, perfect for sharing. Ordered the restaurant’s name-sake? The ceviche is served up in a martini glass full of delicious fish and herbs. Want to try the cheese platter? A beautiful selection of cheeses is perfectly laid out on a wooden cutting board. The food and ambiance will keep you coming back for more.
No one does breakfast like Keke’s. From Pina Colada Stuffed French Toast to the Bar-B-Que Omelet, Keke’s menu features classic breakfast and lunch items with a twist. If you’re there for breakfast, we recommend the Banana Split Waffle filled with banana, pineapple, fresh strawberries, chocolate syrup, and pecans. If you’re more of a lunch person, the Sesame Chicken Wrap, bursting with grilled chicken breast, romaine, crispy noodles, mandarin oranges, sesame seeds and toasted sesame dressing, is a real crowd pleaser. Whatever meal you try, make sure you go hungry!

With three specialty salsas, a massive drink menu, and gluten free options, it’s no wonder everyone’s going loco for Cocina.
