The Burrow’s Squirtsky

Bottoms Up
By Lynda Wheatley | July 9, 2022

Walk into Elmwood Township’s newly opened The Burrow, formerly the cozy digs of Tuscan Bistro, and the place is almost unrecognizable. The circular bar is still there gleaming anew amid the ceiling and walls drenched in fresh whites. With touches of moody gray-blue glass tiles, an in-wall fireplace, and soft, neutral-colored banquettes backed by windows aplenty, The Burrow is bathed in light and a brightness that belies its underground name. Helping matters even more: the Squirtsky. The name alone caught our hearts, and we loved the contrast of Squirtsky’s sour punch—fresh-squeezed grapefruit, lime juice, grapefruit vodka, Tito’s vodka, and soda—against its black-salt rim. Belly up to the bar or take a table, but if you can’t bear to come inside, check out The Burrow’s special Boater’s Menu, where you can pick from 21 dishes, plus several canned beers, bottled wines, and sodas, for delivery to your boat at Elmwood, CenterPointe, or Harbor West marinas.
