A new mixed-use residential and commercial center in Sterling, Virginia, called Epicerie Plaza in Cascades Overlook has taken shape over the past year. Developed by Meladon Group and featuring condo living with the convenience of a variety of supportive local businesses, the treat is to discover the range of dining options available for us to enjoy.

Burtons Grill & Bar

Burtons originated in Massachusetts, but is gradually moving southward as they spread their philosophy of sourcing the best local ingredients, creating innovative dishes and exceptional cocktails to tempt the palettes of their guests, and delivering impeccable service for a complete dining experience. The ambiance is bold, inviting, and casual enough while still having distinctive character. With a range of dishes for paleo, gluten-free, vegetarian, or allergen-specific diets, their menu changes frequently to include the seasonal selections ripe for exploration. Libations include specialties such as pomegranate martinis, their sour cherry manhattan, or singular mai tai made with Bacardi Black, amaretto, Gran Gala, fresh lime, pineapple juice, and a mango-pineapple ice sphere. Whether shaken, crushed, or stirred, these varying menus of crafted drinks are sure to impress! Beer lovers or those preferring nonalcoholic options will find plenty to appeal to them as well.

Appetizers, soups and salads highlight Burtons’ focus on healthy, tasty and fresh ingredients from farm to table. Full of flavor, try their superfood salad with quinoa, baby spinach, dried cranberries, feta, grape tomatoes, avocado, julienne vegetables, grilled lemon and lemon vinaigrette. You also can find comfort food like Buffalo chicken dip with grilled chicken, blue cheese, cheddar, and corn tortilla chips. Ordering one or more appetizers to share is a great way to start date night! Entrees include carefully selected hand-cut Angus beef steaks aged to perfection, market catch or seafood specialties, vegetarian risottos and Asian-inspired dishes with herbed jasmine rice, or sandwiches such as their scrumptious short rib grilled cheese or street tacos. Be sure to save room for dessert, as they offer a chef’s trio of miniature creamy delights in glass mason jars or a seasonally inspired featured dessert of the day. Family-friendly and perfect for special occasions as well, they open at 11am, and we’re betting that they’ll soon become a favorite. With outdoor seating and service during the warmer weather, you’ll want to “sip, eat, savor, repeat,” just like their corporate mission statement proclaims.
