Here’s part two of my post. I needed to do a whole other post about our dinner at The Garden Restaurant at Callaway Gardens. This flower will be the only non food thing in this post…enjoy. Callaway Gardens
During our stay at Callaway Gardens we dined at
, the most upscale of the many dining options at Callaway. So upscale in fact that my husband made sure to teach our kids to eat like sophisticated people, both pinkies out please. The Gardens Restaurant
Let’s start with the appetizers:
The kids split a crab cake appetizer with lemon butter sauce and micro greens. They both loved the crab cake but my daughter raved about the sauce.
My husband had a fresh, crisp garden salad for his appetizer.
My appetizer was a deliciously creamy New England Clam Chowder. With tender clams it was perfect on a cool day.
On to the entrees
My son ordered the Balsamic Marinated Grilled Colorado Lamb Chops With toasted walnut pesto, Brussels sprouts with pancetta and cheddar grit cake
The scallop entree. Prosciutto-Wrapped Scallops, sweet potato puree, maple butter and spaghetti squash. Scallops were perfectly cooked to an almost creamy consistency.
I ordered Braised Pork Shank with wild mushroom demi-glace, cheddar grits and sautéed spaghetti squash. DELICIOUS! I love a rich demi glace served with grits to catch it. The texture was perfect, the really know how to cook protein. They got it right every time.
My daughter had the Marinated Grilled Flat Iron Steak With wild mushroom demi glace, oven roasted red and gold beets and herb mashed potatoes
Drinks and Dessert
Hot buttered rum with Pyrat rum. Pyrat is the Man’s favorite drank. He was not too sure about the “butter” but once he tasted it he was happy
And he can’t resist any apple dessert. Warm Apple Galette With housemade cinnamon ice cream
My dessert, pumpkin creme brulee, super creamy and not too sweet
Chocolate Lava Cake The kids shared this Chocolate ganache center with housemade blood orange ice cream for dessert. They absolutely DESTROYED IT!
Chef de Cuisine Peter Stiles did a fantastic job. Service was smooth, warm and friendly all in all we had a great evening
