The sun is out, the birds are chirping, and that only means one thing…Spring has sprung! As you spend some time along the Connecticut shoreline enjoying the excellent weather and beautiful coastline, a menu full of tasty dishes is waiting for you in Chapter One Food & Drink.

Located in the heart of Guilford along the town green, Chapter One is a favorite spot for food and drink. So whether it’s lunch, dinner, or Sunday brunch, we have plenty of choices to tempt your tastebuds!

Lunch in Guilford

If you’re in town for lunch and enjoying our outdoor seating, you’ll want to try our grilled veggie pesto wrap. This combines fresh grilled zucchini, squash, sweet onion, roasted red peppers, shredded carrots, and baby arugula with basil pesto. It’s served to perfection in a grilled tortilla. Also, enjoy a side Caesar or garden side salad for the perfect meal.

When you’re craving a salad, our Zoodle Salad is a must. It includes spiraled zucchini noodles tossed with fresh pesto and parmesan. In addition, it’s topped with cherry tomatoes and mozzarella, drizzled with balsamic vinaigrette, and sprinkled with salt and pepper. It’s a crisp, fresh dish that screams Spring!

Dinner at Chapter One Food & Drink

Dinner time at Chapter One also includes plenty of fresh, seasonal dishes that you’re bound to love. The Caprese Salad is a fan favorite. Enjoy vine-ripened tomato, fresh mozzarella drizzled with balsamic glaze, and house-infused garlic olive oil. It’s sprinkled with fresh basil over arugula.

We’ve got you covered if you’re more in the mood for just some appetizers. Our Ciabatta Bruschetta won’t weigh you down and never disappoints. Tasty toasted ciabatta bread is topped with pesto, house-roasted tomatoes, and goat cheese, drizzled with a balsamic reduction for the perfect springtime appetizer. This is a great dish to try when craving something light and refreshing. It’s so good; sharing may not be an option!

Brunch at Chapter One in Guilford

Our garden salad fits the bill when you’re stopping in for brunch and don’t want to have a heavy meal. Crisp romaine lettuce, tomato, red onion, carrots, bell peppers, croutons, and a house balsamic vinaigrette are always good choices in Chapter One.

Of course, nothing says fresh like our raw bar, which features oysters, shrimp cocktails, and littleneck clams. These are always served on ice to count on having the freshest seafood around.
