Black Sheep Bistro Restaurant Review

: Vermont's oldest and smallest city, Vergennes still charms visitors with its revitalized, 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 19th-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, pork dumplings and a plum Shiraz without fretting the bill. Start with duck tenderloin cigar rolls with a sweet apricot tarragon dip or tamarind-glazed shrimp served over chilled soba noodle salad. Don't miss the savory bacon and Brie-stuffed chicken breast or the kitchen's pork medallions with red pepper and peppadew relish. 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 taking a stroll down Main Street.
