When Burtons Grill opened in North Andover five years ago, soccer moms started telling their baby sitters not to wait up. Center-cut filets and grilled stuffed zucchini fill the room with irresistible smells. It's less rowdy than its Fenway Park outpost, but the steaks, salads, and desserts on the menu are just as impressive. Only drawback: The outdoor terrace overlooks a parking lot. "We get beautiful sunsets" to make up for it, says general manager Michael Tynan.
