Chopps American Bar & Grill, located at the Burlington Marriott, is one such consistent restaurant, which always delivers on each and every visit I have ever made. Check out my prior review of this restaurant from last September for my thoughts after making multiple visits to the restaurant. In addition, Chopps was included on my list of My Top Five Burlington Restaurants, my 2015 Favorite Hotel Restaurant, and my Top 50 Restaurants of 2015. It is a restaurant which I highly recommend and on my most recent visit, a media invite to check out their new Spring Menu, it remained consistently strong.
Executive Chef Jeff Williams has introduced a number of new Spring dishes, using fresh local ingredients such as produce from Verrill Farm in Concord and steaks from River Rock Farm in Broomfield. You will still find some old favorites still on the menu too. For more basic info about Chopps, please check my prior review and here I'll just discuss the dishes I sampled on my most recent visit.
Favorite Restaurant Dishes of 2015 was the Fried Scallops & Shrimp at Chopps. I had to order them again, to see if they still were as compelling, and I wasn't disappointed in the least. The scallops are especially tasty, with a clean, light and crunchy coating and tender, sweet scallops. The shrimp are also delicious, with a similar fried coating. This dish earns my highest recommendation and I was glad to see it remains on their menu.
Service was excellent, being attentive without being obtrusive. The new Spring dishes are excellent additions to the menu and Chef Williams continues to impress. Chopps continues to receive my hearty recommendation and certainly is one of the best restaurants in Burlington, which has become a suburban restaurant mecca.
