Copper Beech Inn

It's been a long time and it's not a long drive so...the guess the proximity of the Norma Terris Theater gave us the 'excuse' to eat here. Enjoyed. The Rose Negroni [$10] that I started with did not live up to the regular Negronis made my a friend but she wasn't there. Great French bread and butter to start the meal.

We shared a delicious Beet Salad [$12] with perfectly ripe beets with a yogurt splash and pistachio nuts. My entrée was Diver Scallops [$27] perfectly cooked over a corn/lobster risotto. The other entrée was a Pork Schnitzel [$20] with great farm veggies and mashed potatoes. My little bite told me that was going to be my choice [hopefully] for the next visit. Dessert was a shared Lemon Olive Oil Cake [$10] moist, flavorful and right out of the oven.

To anyone who has told me recently that the Copper Beech Inn has gone downhill in any category: you are very wrong. What a great lunch we had there today!!!

It was a birthday celebration of a good friend, the day was glorious and we were very hungry for some good food. 

Started off with a Pear salad over arugula with candied walnuts and she had the Watermelon salad with watercress, feta and balsamic reduction. Both were remarkable. [$10 each]

Then on to a 'Clams Casino' flatbread [$12] with an amazing crust and a Leek Tart [$8] accompanied by a jicama and arugula salad with pepitas.

And for dessert a shared Sticky Toffee pudding [$12] with vanilla bean gelato, caramel sauce and whipped cream. Delicious!
