An Excellent Guilford Restaurant and Bar to Pair With Live Entertainment

Live Entertainment + Great Food and Drink in Guilford

As the weather warms up along the Connecticut shoreline, it’s time to get out and enjoy the best in live entertainment and fine food or drink. Chapter One Food and Drink’s Guilford restaurant and bar is gearing up with menu selections to tempt your tastebuds!

We’re planning many live music events in Guilford this summer as more people head to the shoreline. The combination of live music and entertainment with your favorite Guilford restaurant and bar is a great way to celebrate this time of year.

As you make your plans for spring and summer in Guilford, we hope you’ll stop by Chapter One in Guilford for food and drink like none other! Let’s look at some of the dishes you can expect to see on our Guilford menu this spring and summer (always look for some surprises when you visit!)

Visiting Chapter One Food & Drink in Guilford

If you’re in town to catch some live music during the spring or summer, stop by Chapter One for lunch and dinner and enjoy our tasty dishes. Our appetizer menu features dishes like four-cheese baked mac. Our chefs use Cavatappi pasta and toss it with heavy cream and four different types of cheese. It’s topped with herb toasted breadcrumbs to deliver a taste out of this world.

If you love seafood, then the bacon-wrapped scallops are a must! Fresh Stonington scallops are wrapped with smoked bacon in a house-made bourbon glaze over arugula. Don’t forget the coconut shrimp too! This appetizer consists of deep-fried breaded gulf shrimp and is served with fresh lemon and sweet Thai chili sauce.

For your main course, our Caprese Melt never disappoints. Mozzarella is melted with fresh tomatoes, spinach, and house-made pesto on toasted ciabatta bread. It’s lightly drizzled with balsamic glaze.

Dinner choices include Salmon Piccata. Pan-roasted salmon is served over mashed potatoes with sautéed spinach and garnished with lemon caper butter. If you like a meat and pasta medley, Chapter One Bolognese should be on your radar. Stewed veal, sausage, and crumbled house-made meatballs are slow-simmered in a port wine tomato sauce and finished with parmesan cheese and a touch of cream as it’s tossed with Cavatappi pasta.

These are just some of the choices you can expect on Chapter One’s menu in Guilford. These dishes are perfect if you’re grabbing a meal before or after a show in the Guilford area.
