Blantyre Restaurant Review

: Blantyre resort’s restaurant presents a dining experience for visitors looking to enjoy a taste of what life was like for New England elite during the Gilded Age. The luxurious property, located in the Berkshires, serves a complete breakfast (for houseguests), luncheon and Sunday tea, but the formal dinner in the Main House alone is worth a visit. Upon arrival, guests are shown to the Music Room where they can order a cocktail or glass of Champagne to enjoy while listening to a pianist before being escorted to the candlelit dining room where the scent of fresh flowers fills the air. Choose from a prix-fixe menu of three ($125) or four ($145) courses, or a "surprise" five-course seasonal tasting menu ($165, or $300 with wine pairing) from chef Arnaud Cotar. The offerings change seasonally and highlight ingredients from local farms. Starters may be sweet corn bisque filled with lobster and chorizo, smoked peppered tuna with white cabbage salad, and seared foie gras. For mains, expect a boneless rack of lamb, Châteaubriand for two, or seared skate wing. The massive wine list features labels from around the world, including finds like the Domaine Leflaive white Burgundy. While some bottles are pricier, there are also affordable California wines. Afterwards, retire to the aforementioned Music Room for an assortment of cheeses, desserts and coffee.
