Ma(i)son in Lancaster -- another outstanding experience

CindyJ | Dec 12, 201407:37 PM     7

It's been awhile since the last time I dined at Ma(i)son, but I was there last night with a group of friends and it was truly wonderful. There were eight in our group and, except for my husband and me, none had been there before. Because of the size of our group, a 5-course fixed-price tasting menu was pre-arranged. I must say, everything was delicious. There wasn't anything served that everyone did not enjoy.

Course #1 was handmade burrata garnished with roasted brussels sprouts and smoked prosciutto agrodolce served with grilled house-made bread. Course #2 (I really MUST figure out how to make this at home) was a winter salad of thinly sliced apple, radicchio, celery root and kohlrabi, tossed with dried tart cherries, pumpkin seeds, chives and a creamy horseradish dressing. Course #3 was a rabbit ragu with toasted garlic, rosemary and chantrelles served over rigatoni. Course #4 was pan-roasted Carolina drum served with an heirloom carrot stew, romanesco, wheat berries and pumpkin seed pesto. Finally, dessert was a warm apple tart made from heirloom Lancaster County apples, topped with almond and marzipan streusel, brown sugar and spices, whipped cream and honey from their garden and also a small cheese plate with apples and fig jam.

All this for $60 per person (plus tax & tip) -- BYO with no corkage fee. I don't know if it gets much better than that in Lancaster. It was definitely worth the trip from southern Chester County.
