A Single Pebble was established in 1997 in Barre – Montpelier by Steve Bogart. With Chef Steve’s passion and creativity, A Single Pebble soon set a precedent for classic Chinese cuisine in Vermont. A second location was established in May 2002, located in the heart of Burlington, a short walk from the Church Street Market Place.
In 2004, A Single Pebble in Burlington was named “The Best Restaurant in Vermont” by Vermont Magazine, and is awarded by annual Seven Daysies Reader’s pick year after year. After the original Barre – Montpelier location was closed. In 2008, A Single Pebble celebrated its eleventh birthday with Chiuho Duval as the present Chef/Owner.
There is a duality to A Single Pebble. We strive to stay connected with classic and traditional Chinese dishes and cooking methods, yet there has been a modern and experimental edge to many of our daily specials.
Founding owner/chef, Steve Bogart introduced a consciousness of fine Chinese food to Vermont and demonstrated what sophisticated Chinese dining was about with stories and history. In May 2005, Chef Steve invited Chiuho Duval, who was one of the chefs in the kitchen, to join the partnership and gradually passed the restaurant over to her, before officially retiring in August 2009.
Since taking over the restaurant, Chiuho has been striving to preserve the legacy of A Single Pebble, whilst refreshing the menu with modern, simpler cooking techniques, and highlighting the freshness of the ingredients provided by local farmers.
A Single Pebble remains a place that allures diners with warm, friendly service and mouth-watering menus. It’s a place that is equally welcoming to those who are discovering it for the first time, and those who come back again to be a part of the story.
