The Summer Menu at the Chesterfield Inn is now being served in the dining room and on the back terrace. The menu features fresh local foods, with the new twist of many of entrees available in smaller plate portions. The smaller plates will please those who like to graze through a menu, allowing guests to try an assortment of different menu items in smaller portions and still have room for dessert.
The Crab Cakes are a very popular appetizer, served with a Tomatillo and Roasted Corn Salsa with an Ancho Chile Remoulade – this is also available as an entree. A few of my favorites are the Roasted Petite Veal Rack on Balsamic Braised Swiss Chard with Porcini Mushroom Jus, and the Mussels with Tomatoes, Kalamata Olives, and Fennel on Fresh Rosemary Pappardelle. Another summery item on the menu is the Grilled Chicken and Whole Wheat Pasta Salad with Arugula Pesto, Roasted Sweet Corn, and Feta Cheese.
The Bruschetta is made with Sun-dried Tomato Tapenade, with Vermont Goat Cheese and Roasted Yellow Peppers. We make the Rosemary Baguettes – that are the base for the bruschetta – here at the inn and the flavors are perfect for summer! We invite you to come sample the new menu and enjoy sunset from the terrace – by far the best seats in Chesterfield!
