About our Restaurant

Alongside elevated pub food, we offer a variety of ever changing specials inspired by Executive Chef Christina Scifo's diverse experiences in her culinary career. We work closely with local purveyors and farms to showcase the best and freshest ingredients that Vermont and New England offer. Many of our dishes are driven by our Vermont made wood fired grill, the centerpiece of our kitchen.

About Chef: Christina Scifo

Christina began her culinary path at fourteen years old when her father got her a job as a busser in a deli in South Florida. She was hooked. She later got her first job on the line at TGI Fridays in Boca Raton, Florida. She found slinging French onion soup and chicken fingers to be fun, but when she realized it was time to get serious, she bought a winter coat and moved to Vermont to attend NECI in Montpelier.

After receiving her degree, she returned to Florida and began working up the ladder in several popular spots such as Maxwell’s Chophouse, Seagate Hotel, Cielo by Angela Hartnett, and Tryst. After ten years in Florida, three of them as an executive chef, she felt the need to learn and immerse herself further in food. She moved to New York where she worked as a consultant.

Christina opened six restaurant concepts as consulting executive chef in two years and created teams of professionals to replace her. New York City tested her endurance and opened her eyes to what a restaurant can and should be. However, she missed the mountains and the incredible community she found earlier in life in Vermont. Christina bought a better winter coat in 2019, and came to the place she considers her true home, Burlington.

Our Location

Deep City is located in Burlington, Vermont, only a few hundred feet from the Lake Champlain waterfront. Originally built in the mid 1800's as a lumber mill, our building was home to a variety of businesses before we took over the space in January of 2019. Over the next fifteen months, we completely renovated the interior to expose the original brick, post & beam construction with a modern, industrial design.

Sit inside to soak in this beautiful historic building or reserve a table on the patio to enjoy dinner while catching the sunset over Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks.

As a project of the team behind Foam Brewers, we are conveniently located next to the eccentric brewery where we encourage you to grab a beer before of after your meal.
