Monarch and the Milkweed

Opened in 2016, "Monarch and the Milkweed" is a staple of the Burlington, Vermont restaurant landscape. Dubbed a "fine diner" by chef owner Andrew LeStourgeon, "Monarch and the Milkweed" is known for its nostalgic comfort food menu, French and American-tradition inspired pastry case, and fiercely creative cocktail menu.

The name "Monarch and the Milkweed" is based on the symbiotic relationship that exists between Monarch butterflies and the milkweed plant. Milkweed plants are pollinated by Monarch butterflies while Monarch butterflies need milkweed to lay their eggs. The name proudly represents the harmonious partnership between "Monarch and the Milkweed" and MILKWEED®!
