Although there are many excellent restaurants on the North Shore, one stands out to our BONS committee—L’Andana offers a dining experience in Burlington like no other. The soothing elegant ambience of the dining room is the backdrop for a stellar dining experience. House-made pastas, wood-grilled meats and fresh seafood are all on offer. A favorite is the gnocchi with Maine lobster tossed in a Vermont butter.

Ledger Restaurant & Bar
Maybe it’s the kitchen service fee added to every bill, ensuring the back of the house gets a fair wage, or maybe it’s owner Matt O’Neil’s golden touch—or that beast of a wood-fired cast iron grill—but from the service to the food and drinks, everything comes together in perfect harmony.
