Side Dishes: New 7 Nights guide on stands
We call our guide to Vermont restaurants and bars 7 Nights , and the sixth annual issue debuts Wednesday, May 5. With a cover featuring a technicolor salad from Kismet  in Montpelier, this year’s magazine offers the stats of more than 800 eateries.
Divided into 10 sections corresponding to Vermont regions, 7 Nights lists everything from coffee shops and bakeries to haute cuisine. It also spotlights 11 notable restaurants — including Verdé  in Stratton, the Northeast Kingdom’s P&H Truck Stop  in Wells River and the Green Cup Café & Bakery  in Waitsfield. Vermont breweries, wineries and distilleries are included, as are some favorite restaurants outside our area, in southern Vermont, New Hampshire and Montréal.
And, if you want to know which businesses are participating in Vermont Restaurant Week , just look for the bright orange fork logo.
