Kensington’s at The Spa at Norwich Inn will offer a three-course gourmet dinner on Valentine’s Day for an all-inclusive price of $59 per person. Diners can turn dinner into an overnight escape by adding a Valentine package that includes a discounted guestroom and spa services.
The Feb. 14th menu, which features entrees of Apple Cider Brined Pork Rib Chop, Pan-Seared Delmonico Steak, Stuffed Chicken Rissole or Simply Grilled Swordfish, will be prepared by the Spa’s new Executive Chef, Edward Enseault of Westerly.
“I believe in a sophisticated level of simplicity,” said Esneault, who knew about farm-to-table cuisine before it had a name, having spent extended time as a boy at his grandparents’ farm in Louisiana. “And the foundation of all cooking is based on upholding the integrity of the ingredients, which should be of the highest quality.”
Appetizers include Baby Spinach and Marinated Mushroom Salad, Lobster Bisque, Sherry and Crabmeat Cocktail and Trofie Pasta with Smoked Chicken, Roasted Tomatoes and Escarole.
The romantic dessert menu features Bananas Foster For Two, prepared tableside; Chocolate Soufflé, Baked Alaska For Two and Ginger-Lavender Crème Brûlée.
A special overnight guestroom rate of $69, plus tax and resort fee, is available to those who order the Valentine’s Day Dinner Feb. 14 only; spa services will be available to these overnight guests at a 25 per cent discount Feb. 14 and 15.
The Spa at Norwich Inn and its restaurant, Kensington’s, are located at 607 W. Thames Street, Norwich.
