A Sneak Peek at Burtons Grill & Bar

Burton's Grill and Bar Riverdale Park Station Maryland

Burtons Grill & Bar will open at 4 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 22, at Riverdale Park Station, but the Hyattsville Wire got a preview this past week.

The Riverdale location will be the first in Maryland for the upscale chain, which has 14 other locations from New Hampshire to Florida.

Designed by Boston-based Niemitz Design Group, the interior features tall windows matched with dark wood tables and booths, giving the place the feel of a traditional steakhouse without the overly dim lighting.

Like Busboys and Poets down the street, Burtons is forward-thinking about allergy awareness and restricted diets. The menu features vegetarian, paleo and gluten-free food, as well as the option of selecting a half portion.

While the fare leans toward contemporary American, there are some twists, such as a “Philly spring roll” made with sirloin and onion rings, “street tacos” with tomato jalapeño relish and arugula and “General Tso’s cauliflower.”

The bar will add to Route 1’s options, with wine from France, Spain, New Zealand and the West Coast; and signature cocktails like a basil gimlet made with gin, house-made lime cordial, muddled basil, chamomile and citrus bitters.

There’s also a “{B} Choosy” kids menu that follows the USDA’s latest guidelines for nutrition and allows parents to choose from a list of ingredients and cooking methods instead of just offering one-size-fits-all chicken tenders and grilled cheese.

The 6,808-square-foot space will have 182 dining room seats and 33 bar seats. Two outdoor patios, complete with a fire table and corn hole game area, will add another 55 seats.
