Mayflower Dining Room | I
especially liked the fact that Executive Chef Timothy Au
uses local organic produce and other regional products.
In fact, vegetables, herbs, and lettuce are grown in the
hotel’s own Rossiter greenhouse. The servers were knowledgeable
about the special menu items, and combined the right amount
of attention without being pretentious or overbearing. For
more casual fare, try the Tap Room for a great bowl of soup,
salad, or steak sandwich. It’s cozy, romantic, and less
expensive than the main dining room. For those thinking
healthy, a spa menu is offered both in the spa and dining
(+) Outstanding organic cuisine, with some of the ingredients
grown on the property.
