I'm a huge fan of Burton's Grill. You probably are, too, if you're gluten-free and live in the Northeast.
Even though our family isn't lucky enough to have a Burton's Grill near where we live (in a suburb of Washington, DC), we always look forward to dining there when visiting relatives in the Boston area.
Burton's Grill has locations in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Connecticut, and even a bit further away in Virginia Beach. Their Gluten-Free Lunch and Dinner Menus rank high on our family's list due to their wide range of great-tasting options -- and the fact that you don't feel you have to "go without" (as in ordering a burger without the bun or being a denied the choice of pasta as an entree). Burton's offers their gluten-free guests both gluten-free buns with their burgers and sandwiches as well as delicous gluten-free pasta (just take a look at this incredible gluten-free Lobster Pasta!) Another sumptuous gluten-free pasta choice: Chicken and Wild Mushroom Pasta -- medallions of chicken pan-seared with asparagus and cremini mushrooms in a sherry cream sauce over gluten-free pasta. How often do you see something like THAT on a Gluten-Free Menu?! My mouth is watering right now!
And that's just the beginning. Their extensive Gluten-Free Menu -- which features contemporary American cuisine with a focus on fresh, high-quality ingredients -- includes choices such as filet mignon, chicken, seafood, fish, salads, sandwiches and burgers. They even have several gluten-free options for dessert, including a warmed chocolate torte (which we've never had room to try, since we're always so full from our other courses!). My personal favorite menu item? Their fried calamari appetizer (yes, fried -- and totally gluten-free!). It's the best I've ever had -- gluten-free or not!
At Burton's Grill, there's little reason to be concerned about safe gluten-free meal preparation. That's becasue the CEO himself requires a strict gluten-free diet due to Celiac Disease. This is a restaurant group that takes their commitment to guests with dietary restrictions to the highest level!
If you haven't had the pleasure of dining at Burton's Grill, be sure to put it on "your list" of places to try when near one of their MA, NH, CT, or VA locations. I think you'll agree it's at the top of the food chain when it comes to gluten-free dining. But be prepared to feast...there's very little that's "off limits" at this restaurant. They make sure gluten-free guests have just as satisfying an experience as others when dining at their restaurants.
