SIP. EAT. SAVOR. REPEAT…. This was the theme from another successful event I hosted…. This time it was at Burtons Grill and Bar in Park Road Shopping Center. Burtons Grill and Bar opened their doors almost a year ago in Charlotte, NC , actually they are coming up on their one year anniversary! WHOOOO HOOOO!!! (insert golf clap) This spot is the perfect place for a casual lunch, having a drink(s) at the beautiful bar, dining on the gorgeous patio, or just dining with friends over great food, fine wine, cocktails, and conversation. They strive on providing guests with an “array of high quality food and beverages served by a friendly knowledgeble staff.” And from my personal experiences, they nail this mission every time. The staff are always professional and trained very well if you have any specific needs they can customize something for you. In the restaurant business, consistency is key to getting customers to come back and enjoy meals like it was their first time dining. Don’t get me wrong, I have tried everything on their menu and normally have my go-tos I always get, but I never get tired of ordering the same menu items because they are just that good. They offer not only the regular lunch/dinner/whim menus, but they also offer gluten free options, something they take very seriously for people with food allergies.

New cocktails rolled out recently and this was one of the top contenders of the night. This is a gorgeous “BLOOD MOON RISING” cocktail that included blood orange puree, blood orange shrub, milagro silver, solerno, smokey blood orange crisp, and a spiced salted rim. Not only are these stirred cocktails mighty tasty, they are truly some of the best!

Another one of my faves and I also think the #1 favorite amongst our group, was this “CITRUS AND SAGE DROP” effen blood orange vodka, tangerine syrup, fresh lemon and sage. Not even kidding, I lost count how many I had after my second one because they were that good. All in all, the cocktails are a must try at Burtons. They have a great cocktail list ranging from mules, whiskey and bourbon cocktails, and martinis and a local craft beer and wine list.

Roasted Beet Salad

Point Judith Calamari

Salmon Romesco (one of my personal faves)

Mediterranean Chicken Risotto

Lobster Shrimp Pasta (my #1 choice hands down)
