That’s really sad. As a Middlebury alum, the Dog Team always held a special place in my heart, seeing as it was probably the best food in town and really a unique Vermont institution.
Fire and Ice is pretty decent, but I found the rest of the town’s culinary scene somewhat lacking. Then again, this was ten years ago, so my memory may be fading and I’m sure things have changed somewhat. Besides, it’s so pretty out there, food is somewhat of an afterthought.
Oh this is such sad news to me. I collect Labrador wall mats and the wall mats in this restaurant, as well as all of the clippings from newspapers on Labrador and Grenfell (framed) were priceless. What a terrible loss of beautiful things, and wonderful pieces of written history which are now gone. Everything displayed there belonged in a museum.
There seems to be a rash of burning restaurants lately..
I see several mentioned in the RF news forum……
Ahh, Middlebury Vermont. One of my absolute all time favorite towns. It’s the way America used to be, back in the 50s and 60s. I think Otter Creek Brewery is there too. Last time I was there, franchised businesses were far and few between.
In case you don’t find The Dog Team open or, for some variety if you are in the Middlebury area for more than one meal, there is a great restaurant called Fire and Ice located right in "downtown" Middlebury.
FWIW, The Dog Team is located north of Midd. and near but not directly on, US Rt 7 as a result of road reconstruction some years ago.
Hope all this helps.
Wow yellowlablover! I think that is it. I searched and searched using Google and just couldn’t find it. Thanks a lot!
I think the restaurant you are thinking of may be the Dog Team Tavern in Middlebury Vermont-they do have a website. Hope this helps.
I’m not sure if this is the best place to put this, but anyway….
About 10 years ago I was on a meandering kind of vacation with my parents, dad at the wheel, and I wasn’t paying too much attention to where we were. We started at Lake George, NY, and ended up in Vermont, somewhere across Lake Champlain, because we took the ferry. We ate at a restaurant for dinner that was unusual, and tasty! It was on a country road, if memory serves correctly and when you walked in there was a fixed menu from which you ordered before you were seated. Once seated, you were brought a tray of pickles, bread, and relishes before you main course. They only had maybe three or four mains to choose from, stuff like pot roast, etc. There was a small gift shop just outside the restaurant. Does this sound familiar to anyone? The name might have had "Sled Dog" in it somewhere, but maybe not. I’ve searched online for this place to no avail! Thanks everyone.
