Bernards Inn Winter Menu

Went Friday night and was just blown away by the food, service and overall experience.

Just 2 of us, started with our usual cocktails and received an amuse of pickled beets with macadamia nuts, interesting combination that I had never tried before and it worked quite well.

The wonderful other had the suckling pig appetizer with coconut puree, pineapple, semolina polenta, cashew and cilantro; she shared and it was really good.

I was much more decadent and had the foie gras appetizer, it was two types of foie Gras, on one side of the plate there were two small pieces of seared foie gras and on the other side one big jar of pate served with pickled veg, prickly pear & citrus marmalade they gave me small garlicky cristinis to spread all of this rich velvety goodness all over, I needed more quickly and they brought them just in time! - it was just an amazing way to start a dinner - thank God, or I guess Pfizer for Lipitor!

For dinner the other had the chicken pot pie, which was ingeniously served as a roasted french cut chicken breaston one side of the plate served next to an amazing little crust topped pie that had rich chunks of dark meat and root vegetables in a winter beating country gravy that we finished eating watching football yesterday.

After the foie gras I went for the duck which had a maple glaze and was served with pomegranate and a foie gras sauce! Talk about over the top!!!

Too much for desert but we had coffee and they brought some cookies and candies at the end of our meal. I had a glass of wine with each course that the server helped me choose from a list of about 50 wines by the glass.

All in all a great start to 2015 fine dining - one of the richest and more fun dinners we have had in a while, the "scene" was pretty cool as the round bar area was packed and the piano player started singing around 9:15 accompanied by another gentleman with a french horn. We could have listened to them all night, we were in the other room from the music but it was still great to listen and enjoy ourselves, no one rushed us out and they would have let us stay but we ended up leaving when they took a break.

$165 with tax and tip and worth every penny.
