Phil Merrick and Jodi Whalen opened August First in the summer of 2009. August First is located in a big renovated garage in downtown Burlington, where it’s bright and warm in the winter, and breezy and open in the summer. The open space lets you see the bakers in action, creating European style breads and pastries. Check out their menu here.

I have been to "Flatbread Friday" twice now with my family. It is great. For $12 (adult) and $8 (kids) you help yourself to as much delicious flatbread pizza and salad as you want. Drinks and beer (Switchback on tap) are extra. The pizzas are incredibly tasty and totally inventive.

My husband and I were out and about running errands last weekend with our 6-month old and needed to re-fuel somewhere that was relatively quick, casual, and had that optimal level of noiseness for our son (not too much noise that it would be overly stimulating but enough noise that if he started to fuss our fellow diners wouldn't start shooting us death...more

The best part is that the event is totally kid and family friendly; my 14 month old was running around with a gang of kids and it was totally stress free!! You are amongst your own from the start of the evening (6pm) until about 7.45pm when the crowd turns younger and...more
