Where’s the Best Pre-Game Food in South Burlington, VT?

Football events are generally known for two things: rooting for your team and eating delicious food. But where in South Burlington, VT, should you go to pre-game? While there are many places to choose from, below are our three favorites:

Guild Tavern: Where the Ingredients Shine

Chef and owner of Guild Tavern, Phillip Clayton, prides himself on having a team of culinary artisans who love sharing their cooking skills and passion for food. He also has a great attention to detail with everything in the restaurant, from the custom-built wood-fired grill to the brandied cherries that top their various cocktails.

If you’re more interested in a unique and sophisticated menu, then you’re sure to enjoy the options here. There’s the Ricotta & Chive Gnocchi with autumn pesto and crème fraîche. Or you can enjoy a Prime Sirloin for you, which comes with a house or Caesar salad, two sides (like whipped potatoes or roasted vegetables), and sauces (like blue cheese butter or sherry mushrooms).
