Whether grabbing a quick bite before a show or relishing in an elegant meal amidst stunning views, guests will delight in the new selection of appetizers, entrées and desserts.

Highlights from the menu include seasonal additions as well as staple items beloved by restaurant patrons. For starters, choose from a number of savory summer dishes like a refreshing bowl of Chilled Tomato Gazpacho topped with flavorful Serrano ham, or the Bibb Lettuce Salad served with local grilled peaches, cloth bound cheddar, marcona almonds and finished with honey vinaigrette.

New main course offerings include Pan Seared Sea Scallops with farm fresh peas and carrots and Olive Oil Poached Black Pearl Salmon with fava beans and tomato mint salad. Crowd-pleasing entrees like Beef Tenderloin Filet with horseradish potatoes and fresh spring vegetables and Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes with grain mustard sauce, pickled red onions, and frisée remain on the menu.
For the perfect ending, guests can indulge a sweet tooth with a choice of select desserts. The mouthwatering Warm Rhubarb Cobbler is topped with cinnamon crème fraiche ice cream and drizzled with balsamic anglaise. Dark Chocolate Biscuit is the ultimate chocolate confection served with silky chocolate mousse and ganache.
