THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Turning Point Inn Restaurant Review

: Surrounded by farmland, this country inn offers a sleek menu that’s in sharp contrast to the rustic, country views out its windows. For cozy seating, ask for the casual dining area with its whitewashed walls, greenery and eclectic décor---a perfect setting for a sunny Sunday brunch. The menu changes seasonally under the direction of chef Nigel Coleman, but the lobster bisque is a house-specialty fixture. The brunch menu showcases some unusual breakfast choices: You may find a frittata with wild mushrooms, caramelized onions and Parmesan cheese, which rates thumbs up. Sturdier brunch entrées include game birds, seafood and beef dishes with all the trimmings. At dinners, look for the leg of lamb stuffed with sausage, an oven-roasted sea bass, prime rib, slow-roasted pork shank and a pan-seared salmon fillet. Desserts are inventive, including the ultrarich chocolate terrine with its coating of toasted and crushed rice, crème brûlée and mocha mousse.
