Q. How do I know what each restaurant is serving for their prix fixe menu?

A. As restaurants submit their menus to us, we’ll post them on the site for your convenience. Also, on Wednesday, April 12, 2017 a printed menu guide will be published as an insert in Seven Days newspaper and will also be distributed at Vermont Federal Credit Union branches throughout Vermont.

Q. Do the prices ($20, $30 or $40/person) include taxes and tip?
