The Dining Room
Diners may eat “outside” in the town square, or “inside” a French cottage. Views of famous French locations such as the Eiffel Tower give diners the sensation of actually being there. The gas-lit cottages look authentic, and each provides the cuisine of France’s five districts such as Provence, Moulin, and Brittany.
Before we get into the menu, diners should know that for an extra charge, they can have an all-you-can-drink pass if they pay for the buffet. Included are Bloody Mary’s, house variety red and white wine, and Miller Lite or Blue Moon beer.
Chef-sanctioned brunch offerings include the usual breakfast station with eggs Benedict, sausage frittatas, cheese blintz, Bavarian sausage, a sausage bread pudding, and smoked salmon. A custom omelet station is available. There is also a pastry station, custom crepes, as well as fruit, breakfast meats, waffles, French toast made with raisin bread, and scrambled eggs.
The dinner buffet features stations with foods from the five provinces of France. You’ll choose between Penne pasta dishes, truffle cream pasta, Yukon gold mashed potatoes, scalloped potatoes, saffron rice, Brussels sprouts, carrots, and poached pears.
The carving station offers roast beef with au jus, lamb, and prime rib. Seafood dishes include “Clams, sausage, and basil,” shrimp, smoked salmon, and seafood bouillabaisse. If you’ve never tried pate, you’ll find duck or pork pate alongside the cheeses and smoked meats. Most dinner foods are cooked to order.
