Picture this: a duo playing melodic gypsy-influenced French jazz, you’re dining on grilled scallops drizzled in garlic butter and have a glass of wine in hand. There’s no need to be French to enjoy that scenario.
From 4 to 8 p.m. on Sunday, July 14, Le Chateau presents a downright dreamy way to celebrate Bastille Day, French or not.
The restaurant, located in South Salem, has elegant French-inspired cuisine, and is housed at a classically styled, historical manor that boasts formal gardens and sunset views. New Executive Chef Christopher Deist and Pastry Chef Jean-George Houdusse have pulled together a delectable sampling of French specialties for the holiday.
Brunch will be served from 12 to 3 and features authentic dishes like traditional snails with garlic butter and a crispy crepe with leeks, shiitake mushrooms and champagne truffle sauce. There are also breakfast favorites, like waffles but done Le Chateau style: freshly made with a berry compote. Brunch is available for $38 per person and includes a glass of champagne.
From 4 to 8 p.m. the prix fixe menu includes a plate of “fruits de mer,” with fresh oysters, clams, shrimps and Jonah crab claw, foie gras terrine mason and moule mariniere. Entree options Merguez sandwiches with Chateau style fries and caramelized onions, poached filet of sole with scallops mousseline and croque monsieur will create a getaway in your mind to Nice. The menu is $48 per person, and Le Chateau is offering a children’s menu for $19 per person. The a la carte menu will also be available.
