Restaurant Week Part 1: Church and Main

The warm weather is upon us now, and the local restaurant scene is hopping. With the advent of the summer tourist season and the bevy of spring holidays and events, Al fresco dining has taken over Church Street and Vermonters are flocking to their favorite restaurants.

The culinary scene in the Burlington area has grown impressively in recent years. We are also lucky to have such a strong network of local farms that deliver fresh veggies, meats and cheeses to these restaurants on a daily basis.

TruexCullins Interiors is currently working on a new restaurant which will be opening on Church Street soon. Look for more info on that project this summer! For now, we thought we would take a look at a few of our other recent restaurant projects as we kick off the summer 2012 season. Call this our own “Restaurant Week”, and we’ll start with one of the newest gems on Church Street in Burlington: Church & Main.

For over 18 months now, Church & Main has been serving brunch, lunch and dinner at the bottom of Church Street, in the location of the former Smokejacks. TruexCullins Interiors designed this new dining room, with custom furnishings, artful lighting, and rich finishes. Being right around the corner from the Flynn, the place has a definite theater vibe. Accent lighting highlights local artwork, and heavy velvet curtains provide privacy for an intimate dining experience.

The food, of course, is on center stage here. The focus is on locally-sourced ingredients that are presented in creative and dynamic ways. Church & Main also has an extensive wine list and outdoor seating. Be sure to follow Church & Main on facebook or visit them online at
