With authentic warmth and character acquired through over two centuries of hospitality, this bucolic retreat feeds diverse appetites at lunch and dinner with New American fare laced with global and regional tastes – such as fan-favorite Blackened Salmon Florentine. A Creole-style seasoning rub (only moderately spicy!) creates a beautifully bronzed pan-seared fillet presented atop veggie-studded rice. For an impressive finish, sautéed spinach, tomato, and colorful diced bell peppers are simmered in a fragrant white wine sauce. The entire menu, spanning casual handhelds to fine-dining entrées, remains available for curbside pick-up during normal business hours. And you can stock your fridge with several premise-made “To Go” classics, from house dressings and BBQ sauce to addictive Brick Tavern Inn Mushroom Bisque.
While developing new dishes and putting a fresh emphasis on local sourcing of proteins and produce, recently-arrived Executive Chef David DiLisa fully respects signature menu items: “Our famous recipe” Brick Tavern Inn Crab Cakes and house-smoked specialties – including mesquite-infused Chicken Wings, Beef Brisket, and scratch-made andouille sausage, plus, of course, bacon – endure as essential staples. In fact, much-loved Chicken or Veal Oscar, each topped with a premium crab cake, are making a return appearance. The chef’s expanded list of innovative starters is popular at a cozy full-service bar that boasts enticing seasonal cocktails.
Multiple dining rooms offer distinctive environments, from homey hearthside intimacy to a sunny, abundantly windowed porch. Three of the spaces are able to host private events for 14 to 30 guests. While the overall vibe is business casual, guests may dress up or down to suit their comfort level.
Alfresco enthusiasts can start counting down the days until the handsomely appointed and lushly landscaped veranda opens for the season. The roof-covered area – nestled in a pastoral locale – is equipped with new furnaces that gently blow warm air onto the patio. Superb parties can be booked in this sylvan setting during daytime hours.
