About 10 years ago, Jed Davis turned a run-down McDonalds on Bank Street in downtown Burlington into Farmhouse Tap & Grill, specializing in farm-to-table brews, burgers and other favorities.
“It was in rough shape, to be honest, but we turned it into a restaurant that I think the community feels very proud of,” said Davis, whose Farmhouse Group includes three other Burlington restaurants.
Now, Davis is preparing to expand Farmhouse Tap & Grill to Finney Crossing in Williston. Davis said he’s been working with the developers for over a year and is confident the location is ideal for a second restaurant. The new spot, he says, will serve the same signature menu as the Burlington location.
“Depending on the season, half to two thirds of our food ingredients are grown, raised and produced right here in Vermont,” said Davis.
The Farmhouse Tap & Grill in Williston should be ready to open next fall or winter.
