Black Sheep Bistro Restaurant Review

: Vermont's oldest --- and smallest --- city, Vergennes still charms visitors with its quaint, historic downtown. Nestled between the Opera House and nearby Otter Creek, the Black Sheep Bistro is a cozy, culinary testament to the town's continued revival. Country décor and nineteenth-century European art adorn the walls, while heavy drape curtains insulate patrons from the world outside. There are no listed specials, and appetizers share a single price-point, as do entrées and wines by the glass. That leaves hungry travelers free to indulge in escargots, mushroom polenta napoleon and a plum Shiraz without fretting the bill. Rustic soups, like French onion gratinée, come with warm, crusty half-baguettes, while lamb dumplings and lobster ravioli boast a flavorful mint pesto and tarragon beurre blanc, respectively. Don't miss the savory bacon and Brie-stuffed chicken breast, or the kitchen's epic pork chop; seasoned in a cinnamon-chili rub, the center cuts are sweet and spicy, and cooked to a pale, tender pink. Shoestring fries crown every meal, arriving at the table lightly-crisped and in a paper cone, poised for sharing. Finish with a refreshing lemon sorbet, before the obligatory, postprandial stroll down Main Street.
