The evening began with complimentary goose liver pate' that
was smooth and delightful. The wine list is extensive as well
as award winning. You may need a little help with a recommendation
as there are so many to choose from in every variety but I am
sure you will find something to suit your taste. You can view
the entire list on their web site.
I would have loved to have had one of the appetizers because
they looked really fun, but a large lunch that day prevented
us from trying them.
My wife had the Tournedos and Seared Scallops with Sweet Potato
Gratin, Chanterelle Mushrooms and an Applewood Bacon Demi Glace
while I chose the Grilled Double Cut Lamb T-Bones with Roasted
Fennel, Rosemary and Olive Oil Infused Fingerling Potatoes,
Sundried Tomato and Sherry Vinegar Demi Glace, and Mint Pesto.
(The menu can also be viewed at their web site.) These dishes
are as elegant as they sound and taste even better than they
look. The sauces used for each entree' are superbly delicate
and tasty and made these dinners some of the best we have ever
tasted. These are the type of dishes that you want to savor
every bite. After the first taste I just sat and let the flavors
sink into my palette. We enjoyed a nice bottle of Beaujolais
that went quite well with our choices.
Though we did not have an appetizer, we could not pass up the
Bananas Foster prepared tableside for desert. Bananas sautéed
tableside with Brown Sugar, Rum, and Lemon, served over Vanilla
Ice Cream, Wow! You've got to love the perfect finish to a wonderful
What else do I need to say. For the perfect dining experience
for any occasion, you have to visit the Greenbriar Inn.
