For more than twenty years, chefs Mark Gaier and Clark Frasier have pioneered sustainable dining and celebrated Old World traditions with their signature grown on-premise and seasonally inspired cooking, beginning with their flagship restaurant Arrows and more recently MC Perkins Cove in Ogunquit, Maine. Champions of practices including growing their own crops, curing their own meats, and making their own cheese, this farm-to-table approach to dining now takes root at Burlington's Summer Winter restaurant. Named for the restaurant's on-premise, four season greenhouse, on view from the dining room, fresh foods and flavors inspire Summer Winter's menu throughout the year.
