Bring a healthy appetite: We don’t call it Fall Feast Week for nothing.
November at Camp Richardson Resort means one thing: Fall Feast Week. The Beacon Bar & Grill is thrilled to host its third-annual fall prix fixe dinner from November 4-13, 2016, served each night from 5:00 p.m. until closing.
As temperatures cool and the leaves change color, our seasonal cuisine changes as well. One of the best things about fall is the transition to richer, heartier food like the fine autumn-inspired comfort food featured on The Beacon’s four-course prix fixe dinner menu. From starters to entrées to desserts, Fall Feast Week offers a one-of-a-kind night of fine dining and incomparable Lake Tahoe views, all for just $45 per person. (Check out the full menu.)
Perhaps the hardest part of the Fall Feast Week dining experience is choosing from each course’s mouth-watering options, which The Beacon’s chefs create just for this event. Shake off the cold with a piping-hot bowl of creamy ginger butternut squash soup topped with spicy pecan crème fraiche or The Beacon’s famous house-made New England clam chowder. Follow that up with your choice of a grilled sweet potato and bacon salad tossed in a house-made mustard dill vinaigrette or a pecan and pear salad topped with bleu cheese crumbles, dried cherries, and a maple vinaigrette.
After the soup and salad has whetted your appetite, you can select your entrée from amongst three tempting choices. How does a spinach, gouda, and pancetta-stuffed pork chop sound, served with seasonal vegetables and cornbread stuffing and finished with a house-made whisky apple cream sauce? Craving seafood? The pistachio-crusted halibut, finished with a rich velouté cream sauce and served with red rice and grilled asparagus, is sure to satisfy your craving. In the unlikely event that neither of those sounds tempting, enjoy a pan-seared maple leaf duck breast served with butternut squash risotto and crispy duck bacon and finished with a sweet blueberry sauce. Not a meat eater? No problem. The menu also offers a five-vegetable quinoa vegetarian entrée option, available upon request.
If you still have room for dessert after those three hearty courses, finish off your night with another almost impossible choice: a slice of sweet potato maple layered cheesecake served with vanilla bean ice cream balls or a cinnamon apple tart glazed with a sumptuous cinnamon cider sauce.
To complement your food choices and enhance your dining experience, The Beacon’s Fall Feast Week prix fixe menu offers suggested beer and wine pairings for each of the four courses. Drinks are not included in the price, but you can choose your favorite from The Beacon’s extensive wine and cocktail menu.
