Restaurants and Dining in Brattleboro and Southern Vermont

"Brattleboro and the surrounding area have hosted some of the best restaurants in Vermont since the first guests hitched their horses to the posts in front of the Hotel Brooks. The hitching posts are gone but there are more than 40 fine restaurants in and within 20 minutes of downtown (below are 25 of them)! Mexican, Italian, Japanese, Thai, Lebanese, Indian, Korean and good ol’ American food are all in easy reach of I-91. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all a treat in our little town with the big city flavor."
