If the word vegetarian makes you shudder, and you can’t go a day without a hamburger, then you’ve clearly never been to MINT.
Last September, Iliyan Deskov and his wife Savitri Bhagavati moved from Los Angeles county to Vermont in pursuit of an intimate, more sustainable setting. They found a real sense of community in Waitsfield. In a time when non-traditional dining is cornering the restaurant market, MINT Restaurant and Tea Lounge is ahead of the curve. MINT doesn’t advertise as a vegetarian spot, they prepare savory dishes from around the world that simply taste good, and happen to be meat-free. Their hope is that non-vegetarians will be surprised by how much they enjoy their meal.
