Burtons Grill Restaurant Review

: If you sense the slick polish of a corporation here, you’re right. Burtons Grill is part of a burgeoning chain begun in New England by owners who spent decades at industry behemoths like Outback. But if you also feel a unique, independent spirit, you’ve nailed it again. It’s a small set of restaurants, with one of those owners living nearby, and each has some authority to tweak things to its neighbors’ liking, while putting a twist on traditional fare. Dishes are clever and creative and deliver layers of flavor. There are also layers of menus --- including gluten-free, vegetarian and a {B} Choosy for kids. Offerings change seasonally, and much of the produce comes from local growers. Favorites include roasted corn risotto, scallop piccata, salmon romesco, and steak frites with chimichurri sauce. Of course, that’s if you can get past the tempting line-up of burgers spanning a classic and a turkey variety (with avocado, arugula and ranch dressing) to the Bonfire (topped with tomato jalapeño relish, sriracha aïoli and sweet and spicy chili pepper sauce).
