Editor’s note: Unfortunately, Barlett’s is no longer in business.
Who would ever guess that behind this door with the beer drinking deer carved into it you could feast on Grilled Maple Leaf Farms Duck Breast or Rigatoni and Smoked Amish Chicken? If you miss the word “gourmet” in its name, from the street you would think Bartlett’s is a typical roadhouse. But one look at the menu tells a different story. Although the atmosphere in Bartlett’s Grill & Tavern is casual and comfortable, the food has a gourmet flair, whether you order a dinner entrée or a sandwich.
We stopped in for lunch, wanting something light. The Grilled Chicken and Bacon Wrap filled the bill perfectly for me. The sandwich did have mayo slathered all over it like so many wraps. Instead, the chicken breast, lettuce, tomato, and mozzarella were tossed in a basil-balsamic vinaigrette. Since I went healthy with the wrap, I couldn’t resist ordering the fresh-cut shoestring fries—to balance it out.
I usually don’t indulge in dessert at lunch, but my mouth watered at the mention of decadent chocolate mousse.
Maybe my lunch wasn’t so light after all, but it sure was delicious.
