Three Cheers For Burlingame
Defining things seem to come in threes, don't they? Three course meals, three cheers, three flavors in neapolitan ice cream... you get the idea. Burlingame Restaurant in Amelia Island is the culinary contrivance of three tenacious, Harley-driving food lovers with a mission to carry out three simple objectives: serve fresh ingredients, provide unobtrusive service, and offer a one-of-kind dining experience in a relaxed environment. Even Burlingame's logo, a cleverly hidden double entendre, pays homage to the defining power of three.
The Fanellis, Eric and Deb, and Chef Chad Livingston are the pasionately creative trio of partners that brought the idea of Burlingame Restaurant to fruition. They were asked individually to describe themselves using only one word. Deb fittingly chose two words, "elegantly quirky", while Eric chose "focused" and Chef Chad chose "curious".
Too often, restaurants become stale and complacent in their menu options. Burlingame diners are encouraged to dine frequently and "surrender to the chef", as the menu is constantly changing - not only with the seasons, but also with the creative genius of Chef Chad and his staff. The art of the cuisine is created from the right blend of vegetarian, meat and fish menu options. Deb says, "We're not opening bags here. It's all from scratch - from the pastas to the sauces, it's all made from raw materials." You can taste and see the dedication to fresh ingredients in each exemplary dish. For example, the Snapper is presented beautifully and blends every flavor spectacularly, and the autumnal Roasted Beets Salad is a delicious favorite that has been known to convert even the pickiest of vegetable eaters.
When you dine at Burlingame you will experience an elegantly quirky restaurant with a focused mission to source and use fresh ingredients, prepared by a chef who's curious enough to give each menu item a pleasant and charming twist. Reservations are recommended at this local gem, so book today.
