Duckfat in Vt?

Seven Days, a independent newspaper in Vermont, has published a profile of chef Rob Evans and investigates whether Evans and wife Nancy Pugh have plans for opening a branch of Duckfat in Burlington, Vermont.

Although Evans and Pugh have a long way to go before they finish building their house and get back to constructing their restaurant empire, Vermonters can be comforted by the fact that B-town looms big on the couple’s radar. Last May, while in town to see Ray LaMontagne, they checked out the old Smokejacks spot.

“It was a perfect location,” Evans admits. The pair agreed they weren’t quite ready to jump into something new. Still, who knows what may happen next time they come to town?
