Eating Well at American Flatbread in Burlington, Vermont
The slogan on the wall at American Flatbread’s Burlington Hearth suggests that "good food helps." Indeed, it’s all good here, so much so that locals know to gravitate in early if they want a seat on a Friday night. Take the pizza crust—organic milled wheat; the sauce—organic tomatoes; then the luscious toppings, as on the Punctuated Equilibrium—hand-made Vermont cheese, Kalamata olives, oven-roasted sweet red peppers, fresh rosemary, red onions, cheeses, and fresh herbs. Put it all together in a hand-built oven of local red rocks (and add a craft beer brewed on-site), and the end result models the restaurant’s core values—food integrity and sustainability.
