Château du Sureau’s award-winning restaurant, Erna’s Elderberry House, has a menu that’s designed around fresh, locally sourced produce, which means the dishes and the available ingredients change with the seasons. It also means there aren’t any signature dishes for dinner. However, no matter what time of year you eat at this Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel’s restaurant, there are a few things you can expect from the food:
1. It will be personalized to accommodate your preferences. When you make your reservation, you should let the staff know about any dietary restrictions or food allergies that might be an issue for you. The kitchen staff will be happy to accommodate your requests and tailor your menu to fit your needs.
2. It will always be extremely fresh. Chef Gunnar Thompson is known for his farm-to-table philosophy on dining, and he sources most of his ingredients in the hotel’s direct vicinity.
3. It will have five courses, and they will be beautiful. The restaurant’s $95 prix-fixe tasting menu has five small courses, so no matter the season, you’re guaranteed several small plates that will be meticulously laid out, from amuse bouche to dessert.
Chef Thompson is also known for his focus on presentation, making a visit to Erna’s Elderberry House an aesthetic as well as a gustatory delight. Bring your camera, because your meal is going to be picture perfect.
