ArtsRiot is an event space, bar and restaurant. They host a ‘food truck Friday’ in the area behind its building every Friday during the summer. While the food trucks change and rotate each year, there are some staples to keep an eye out for. The Burger Barn has gourmet burgers made with local grassfed beef – the “nutty goat,” with maple candied walnuts, bacon, goat cheese and caramelized onions is worth a try for those looking for a change from your standard burger. And there’s usually a line at the Dolce VT truck – serving seasonally influenced international fare – but the wait is worth it.
Inside the ArtsRiot building there’s a good chance you can catch some live music. Or if nothing from the food trucks suits your fancy, the restaurant is very good as well as affordable. Try the popcorn chicken, served with a little ‘korean sparkle.’ In addition to food truck Friday, ArtsRiot holds a variety of events, from local fund raisers to movie nights to square dancing.
