Help Save The Planet

It's been nearly 2 months since we've launched our GoFundMe, and we are so grateful for the amount of support we've received so far! We created this fundraiser because we don't qualify for most government provided COVID-19 aid for restaurants. In order to receive this assistance, you need to provide 2019 tax returns. But The Daily Planet is under new ownership as of Jan 2020, and the government will not allow us to use tax returns from the previous owner. With all the loss of business we've suffered this past year, we stand at risk of closing the doors on this almost 4-decade old Burlington landmark forever. Can you help save The Planet?

We are excited to announce that we are now open 6 days a week for dine-in and take-out! Open Monday-Saturday 5:30pm-9:30pm, closed Sundays.
