Dinner at Blantyre is a formal, intimate affair, and the menu is intricately designed to capture that mood. The menu changes seasonally, based on chef Arnaud Cotar’s picks for what’s fresh and in season. However, the roasted boneless rack of lamb with potatoes, English peas and morels is one of Cotar's specialties. If you want something different, the chef also whips up a dish of the day, which is announced when you’re seated for dinner. Don’t miss the delicious cherry-almond pie for dessert. Choose a prix fixe three- or four-course menu for $125 or $145, respectively. A five-course tasting menu is available for $165 and can be served with wine tastings for $300 a person.
For another signature dining experience, try to attend one of the wine dinners. Throughout the year, the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel hosts wine dinners with select vintners from across the United States — and sometimes even from around the world. Cotar creates a special menu at these dinners to accompany the wines being served. The special events take dining at the luxury hotel up a notch.
Dinner at Blantyre traditionally begins with canapés and cocktails in the music room or covered terrace, where guests may peruse the wine list and menu while listening to our nightly pianist. The menu features classic European and American dishes, along with an adventurous tasting menu that changes nightly. Local farmers and purveyors are featured as much as possible, with an emphasis on freshness and quality. Some of the highlights include a tableside preparation of Chateaubriand or Dover sole, both of which are romantic entrees for two, accompanied by local vegetables and savory sauces.
