Lunch Menu

Our MA restaurant lunch menu is a lighter combination of fine, colonial cuisine and local, fresh ingredients
It was a great season of deliciously fresh vegetables and herbs from our own gardens. Now that winter is approaching us, we look forward to root vegetables and winter squash while we’re planning spring’s harvest. We can’t wait to see those seedlings pushing through dark soil again. But, now the chill in the air turns our minds to warming ourselves by the fireplaces and enjoying some hearty New England fare! Here’s to changing seasons!
