A recent rainy day lunch at Vermilion convinced me that this remains one of Old Town's best restaurants. My lunch partner ordered, relished and devoured her perfectly cooked cheeseburger on what appeared to be a homemade roll. A tossed side salad accompanied the burger in place of the always good fries. I, however, chose the pimento cheese spread appetizer with a bowl of Sunchoke soup with smoked squid pear and chocolate nibs. Believe me this bowl of soup is beyond delicious, creamy, smooth and flavorful. The slightly crunchy squid are truly the icing on the cake elevating the taste and texture of this entree. The pimento spread remains a favorite and is always enough to take home for n afternoon nosh! This is a great place to have an old favorite or to venture into new food areas. (It is,however time for a little remodel...the velvet flocked panels look tired).
