|Red Heat Tavern was launched in 2014 by the team at Burtons Grill, a regional restaurant chain with 11 locations in MA, CT, NH, VA, and SC (and known for its Gluten Sensitive Menu and attention to safe practices serving guest with allergies or sensitivities). Red Heat Tavern, with two locations (this one in Wilmington, MA and another in Bedford, MA), is a casual dining concept, using the same principles that made Burtons Grill successful.
Inspired by good times experienced at backyard barbeques, the team developed Red Heat Tavern's menu around the unique hardwood charcoal-powered josper oven, which can reach 800-1,000 degrees. The food is seared and infused with smoke flavors reminiscent of good times with friends and family.
Red Heat Tavern is committed to serving their gluten free and allergy sensitive guests in a safe environment. They make everything from scratch, and can therefore accommodate allergy restrictions and sensitivities. They even have special plates they use for guests with allergies or gluten sensitivity/Celiac disease. You won't find GF notations on their menu, but any item on the menu can be prepared gluten free, if requested. Red Heat Tavern follows the same training as Burtons Grill, with everyone in the restaurant undergoing intense allergy awareness training as soon as they are hired.
