THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Birches Restaurant Review

: While the wood-burning grill remains at the heart of chef-owner Brian Bruso’s kitchen, he has added a host of light-fare offerings to his roster of grilled meats and seafood. Now you can nosh on an "Ashleydilla," which consists of grilled shrimp, black beans, grape tomatoes and Monterey Jack cheese stuffed into a flour tortilla and paired with Vermont cheddar grits. Or a turkey burger topped with goat cheese and roasted shallots. Those with a larger appetite might want to tuck into Bruso’s Vermont macaroni-and-cheese or his wood-grilled filet mignon. Birches seems like an oasis in the hurly-burly of Canton, with its wood-paneled bar and understated dining room.
