Had a very interesting group lunch today at The Golden Lamb Buttery in Brooklyn, CT. The entire restaurant is in a barn with large and small rooms. This being a very cold day we luckily had a small heated room. The set up was very nice. The menu had several appetizers and entrées with no prices. It seemed that the menu was prix-fixe but was not. This was confusing and we did not find this out until desserts were offered.
I started with a Pumpkin/Butternut Squash Bisque [$6] which was very delicious, rich and creamy. It fit the day perfectly. To accompany this I had a glass of Sauvignon Blanc and then had another with the main course. This was followed by a carrot/raisin bread and dairy butter and no bread/butter plates. The bread was delicious but difficult to eat.
My main course, even though the Hillsdale Hash is the famous dish, was Maple Syrup Scallops [$16] over a Pumpkin Risotto and farm raised carrots. This was remarkable as the scallops were perfectly cooked and the maple syrup caramelized the outsides. I did order dessert but had some good coffee.
