The Manor Restaurant has created a new limited-time four-course summer $59 prix fixe Chef’s Tasting Menu. The new menu option is available now through July 29th.

The Chef’s Tasting Menu is an exploration of American cuisine infused with French technique, utilizing the freshest of ingredients. Each course is paired with an optional wine selection, chosen by The Manor’s wine director to compliment the flavors of each dish. The Manor’s full dinner menu is also still available, featuring a well-balanced selection of classic favorites and new creations.

À la carte diners can enjoy the Chef’s Tasting Menu in The Manor’s Terrace Lounge, an inviting room featuring an oak bar, gorgeous floral arrangements, a masterful pianist, and generously-spaced tables, allowing for a more intimate dining experience.

The Manor is a veritable village of craftsmen and artisans, including a coppersmith responsible for creating the copper pots used in the restaurant kitchen and a baker who produces, in the onsite bakery, everything from rolls and baguettes to wedding cakes, pastries and gingerbread houses for weddings and à la carte dinners.
