Re: “Tilt (Finally!) Opens in South Burlington

Let me start off by saying that I wanted to love this place, but it was not a romance to be. The space is great! The staff were very nice and hard working. So here is the deal, the arcade videos games like Pac Man, Galaga and pin ball machines are the hook to this themed restaurant. It is what draws people in to reminisce about their days of youth (anyone over the age of 35) and yes.... the beer. But where they are going wrong is the seasoning in the food. Good seasoning is essential, especially when you are trying to sell beer. They go hand in hand. Although the French fries and cheese balls were tasty, the rest of the food lacked flavor and everything tasted the same, like when you have a bad cold. The sauces and seasonings were the culprit. I think they should partner with a Vermont company like Richards Barbecue sauce to keep with their mission, and should skip making their homemade ketchup and or any sauce for that matter. It was unanimous four out of four people did not like the ketchup. However the food that they serve like hamburgers and fries require ketchup. We were tempted to run to the McDonald's which is right next door and smuggle some in. Bring on the Heinz baby. The seasoning on the chicken barbecue sandwich was super bland. It literally tasted like no salt was added to the food and i am by no means a salt addict. There was not even a shaker on the table. The GMO free chicken wings were NOT a hit. They were super small, super expensive, coated with a watery bland homemade barbecue sauce and we had to try to get someone to want to eat the last two. The mystery was finally solved when the waitress revealed that the chef is vegan. Apparently he doesn't taste any of the meat, poultry or dairy dishes he prepares. He asks his staff what they think. A chef needs to taste his food or it just doesn't work. Something tells me that no one wants to tell the Emperor he has no taste. Until food improves, it was four forks down.
