We love food. We especially love all the great local restaurants Springfield has to offer. Why go to a chain when you could keep it local and help out a fellow Springfieldian’s business? There’s nothing wrong with Chili’s every now and then, but the local grub is where it’s at. We recently asked a few of our favorite local chefs about their favorite dishes in the city, not including their own restaurants, of course. Here they are!
Surf & Turf at Farmers Gastropub
“I took my wife there for our anniversary last year and they made us a great surf & turf. The new owner there is doing some fantastic stuff.”
A Boulevard dinner pairing coming up that will feature a 4 course meal. Keep up with Houlihan’s on Facebook, right here!
“I Love the Fried Calamari at Hinode”
Artisan Pizza every Thursday night and a Tapas bar on First Friday with live entertainment!
Tuna Carpaccio at Nakato
“It is simple and delicious.“
Avanzare is celebrating its 14th anniversary and has a new lunch menu available now!
Corn beef sandwich at Finnegan’s Wake
“One of the best corn beef sandwiches in the city for sure.”
Tap Takeover as part of Craft beer week.
Nicola Gilardi has a tough time settling on just one dish, so he gave us several!
“It is so hard to pick just one restaurant. I love so many different kinds of food.”
The Buffet Taj Mahal
“I love the buffet at Taj Mahal because you can try so many different flavors.”
Appetizers & a beer at Touch
“I don’t get to sit down and have a meal very much. Being a restaurant owner is a lot like being a doctor or a realtor. You’re on call 24/7!That’s why I love to sit down and have a beer at Touch. I can have an appetizer and a drink and be done very quickly.”
“The spring rolls at Bambu are always so fresh. Very Good”
