Arguably Vermont's best restaurant, Hen of the Wood has yielded to the desires of its ravenous fans with a branch in Burlington. With a more urban feel than that of the original location in Waterbury, the restaurant serves the same inventive yet down-to-earth cuisine that sets diners' hearts aflutter and tongues wagging. Drop your finger anywhere on the menu and you can't go wrong, especially with dishes like brown butter crepes stuffed with chanterelles and smoked bluefish
toast in buttermilk. If you ever need to say "I love you," this is the place.
