wonderful character breakfast and brunch, we opted to have dinner here on this evening which is more of an upscale character-free affair. This is a great spot for a night out where you'd feel comfortable getting a little fancy for the meal.
We started our evening at the bar while we waited for our table to be ready. The cocktails here are as delicious as they are beautiful (zero-proof as well!). I've been here several times now and tried several drinks, and honestly haven't been disappointed with a single one. We loved the seasonal drink so much one time we asked for the recipe and were gifted a hand-written note with it! A staple on the beverage menu seems to be the Modern Fashioned, Knob Creek Rye Whiskey, Appleton Estate Reserve Blend Rum, Vanilla Bean, and Bitters, which I'd recommend if you are an old fashioned fan.
Dinner is a signature dining experience and the menu reflects that, with appetizers such as escargot or duck confit and entrees ranging from filet mignon to branzino. Here are a few of the menu highlights that our agents have enjoyed. The menu does change occasionally, but everything we have tried here has been delicious!
|Ricotta: Tomato, Aged Balsamic, Cracked Pepper, Basil, Epi|
|Rigatoni with braised chicken sugo, broccolini, pancetta, wild mushrooms, black truffle|
This is a restaurant I find myself going back to time and time again, and going out of my way to dine here even when I'm not staying at the Riviera Resort. If you are driving yourself to the resort for a meal, remember that you need a confirmed dining reservation to park there. Let me know what I should try on my next visit in the comments below!
