The Gilded Age beckons diners with gourmet menus, romantic surroundings

Your dining experience at the romantic, castle-like Blantyre, winner of the Forbes Five-Star Award, might begin with pre-dinner champagne and canapes on a covered terrace. Or perhaps you’d like to sample a red wine (the Gilded Age hotel is a Wine Spectator Grand Award recipient) in the Music Room as a pianist plays. The grand hotel’s prix fixe menu might start with squab and fois gras terrine and include lobster and prawn ravioli or day boat scallops, ending with coconut mousse. The New American-French cuisine is served, according to Zagat, with “old-world elegance.” Presentation and attention are of utmost importance. For true romantics, private dining areas are available. or dinner may be served in your luxurious suite.
