We offer delicious food on small plates for sharing. If you love chain restaurants, you probably won't love us. And that's ok.

Taste of Burlington rocked us on night 1! Apparently the Chicken Fried Lobster, Roast Black Cod, and Filet Mignon with Marrow Sauce are transcendent. We are now open 7 nights a week, do join.
Next month, The Alex will be open 7 nights a week from 5pm. Any evening you need good food, we will be there for you.
Prepping our patio for the summer sun!!
The Alex: a place to please your taste buds with our delicious food, a place to please your wine cravings with our good selections, a place to please your eyes with our dead sexy staff. Yeah, I said it.
Chicken wings? Nope. Duck wings!!!!!
The place that can make salad taste good.
Yes, we would live to accommodate your Christmas party of 40 or less:)
Don't make any premature judgements. Just because our staff is unbelievably good looking doesn't mean we can't give you amazing food and service. For serious.
Alex gives the best tongue. Seriously...it's amazing. You've never had tongue like this before....cooked in duck fat...so tender it disintegrates in your mouth.
The Alex is hiring a new food runner. If you know the perfect candidate, please get them in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Happy long weekend, friends! We'll be open Friday to Sunday from 5pm, but closed on Monday so our staff can take a break. Most importantly — on Sunday we're hosting Choose Your Own Adventure Sunday: Easter Edition. Join us for dinner and we'll buy you a beautiful charcuterie board and dessert that's *way* better than anything that bunny will give you.
What's better than a Satur-date night at The Alex? Nothing, that's what. Except possibly a basket full of puppies. That would probably be pretty awesome. Date night at The Alex: almost as awesome as a basket of puppies. See for yourself tonight from 5pm.
Dining out on a Sunday doesn't have to involve half-price wings or pitchers of questionable beer. That's why we offer Choose Your Own Adventure Sunday. You come in, we buy you a gorgeous charcuterie board, you plot your own delicious meal direction (whitefish tacos? lamb shoulder?), we buy you decadent dessert, and you go home satisfied with the world. Doors open at 5 p.m.
Your weekend to-do list: Explore our special Taste of Burlington prix fixe menu [ ] Eat bacon-wrapped shrimp [ ] Check out Choose Your Own Adventure Sunday [ ] Eat complimentary charcuterie and dessert [ ] Huh. We can help you check all those items off your list. That's handy...
What comes after Saturday? Choose Your Own Adventure Sunday, of course. Join us every Sunday, and we'll buy you a charcuterie board to kick off your evening and some mouthwatering dessert to finish it. The story in between? Well, that's up to you. But the shrimp and lobster mac 'n' cheese isn't a bad stop along the way.
We're not saying you shouldn't come here on Saturday for Valentine's Day dinner. Butttttttt... if you want to celebrate your love and affection on Sunday instead, there's free charcuterie and dessert in it for you. Choose Your Own Adventure Sundays at The Alex. This week, make it a tale of endless romance. Swoon.
Tonight is Choose Your Own Adventure Sundays at The Alex. We take care of the beginning and end; you choose the middle. Come in this evening and we buy you charcuterie to start and dessert to finish.
Suuuuuure, you *could* come to The Alex tonight, and let us feed you plate after plate of delicious food and pour you glasses of lovely wine that will kick off your weekend in style... Oh. Were you expecting an "or"? Yeah, there's no "or". You should just do that thing we mentioned up there.
"Wine is bottled poetry." — Robert Louis Stevenson Until you uncork it. Then it becomes delicious, life-affirming, mouth-tickling, evening-rocking poetry. We prefer it that way.
Apparently there's a football game tonight. We don't have TVs. We don't have nachos. We don't have oversized pots of chili. We do have Choose Your Own Adventure Sunday: Sports Edition. Join us this evening and we'll buy you a delicious charcuterie board to kick off your meal and a decadent dessert at the final whistle. In between, you come up with a winning strategy to go out there and give it 110% and execute the game plan and leave it all on the field and make sure you'll get 'em next time and any other sports cliche you can think of. Sports!
Remember those amazing Choose Your Own Adventure books? Sundays at The Alex are kinda like that. Come in tonight and we'll buy you a charcuterie board to begin and some decadent dessert for a sweet ending. But, you choose your own path in between. Will you indulge in the bacon-wrapped bacon? Or perhaps the shrimp and lobster mac 'n' cheese? Both? It's up to you. You're the hero of this delicious story.
This Sunday evening if you don't have dinner plans or don't feel like cooking, join us at The Alex. If you mention this post when you come in we are buying you a gorgeous charcuterie board to start and decadent, house made dessert to finish. We are looking to spread the word that The Alex is one of the few great options actually open for dining every Sunday night.
“Millions long for immortality who don't know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday.” — Susan Ertz We can't help on the immortality front (yet), but we can at least help you fill your Sunday evenings with great food. We're now open every Sunday from 5 p.m.!
We are open today from 5pm. Stare at the swinging pocket watch. You are sick of cooking.
We are closed Christmas Eve and Chistmas Day, but back open on Friday, Boxing Day.
