A new tasty treat in Morgan's Restaurant
The Chef's in Morgan's restaurant are at it again, making delicious changes on the menu. Now, this one isn't actually on the menu, but it is something you will enjoy when you order one of the many fresh and creative entrees: Cottage Cheese Dill Rolls. Everyone loves to snack on a little something before the meal comes, and these little guys are the perfect item. So light, so delicious, so buttery - trust me, you will love them! I ate them so quickly I didn't even have time to stop and take a picture. Dine in Morgan's and you can taste them for yourself!
Lime Rock Racers are Back!
Another official sign of Spring at the Interlaken and at Lime Rock Park are the return of the Racers! The owner of this beautiful Nissan GT-R has been staying at the Inn for over 35 years and visits the track quite often during the racing season, which means he visits Interlaken quite often as well. We love having you stay with us, Len! As the racing season gets further under way, there will be more beauties like this gracing our parking lot, so be sure to take a few minutes and check them out!
Spring Dinner Menu in Morgan's
As the local ingredients of Spring become available, the new menu at Morgan's will be updated and changed regularly. As I was changing the menu on the Morgan's dining webpage, I was trying to decide which one I would choose if I had the fortunate chance to dine in Morgan's. My chance came true this evening and my choices were down to the following:
Homemade Gnocchi, Wild Black Trumpet Mushrooms, Spring Sweet Peas, Roasted Garlic
Block Island Wild Striped Bass with Artichokes, Baby Spinach, Black Olive Tapanade
And the winner is:
Oh my goodness - so delicious, so healthy - just how I want my meals to be. The artichokes are beyond yummy, the sea bass is tender and so flavorful with the black olive tapanade - I think I made the perfect choice this evening!
