25 Years ago the CIA opened the American Bounty Restaurant on the college's Hyde Park, New York campus. This was the first time that any U.S. restaurant had focused exclusively on American Regional cuisine, and in celebration of the Bounty's anniversary, the chefs at the CIA have created two special three-course fixed price menus for both lunch and dinner to mark the occasion.
The lunch menu offers a vegetarian Gumbo z'herbs from New Orleans, followed by a traditional New England Fisherman's Dinner that features favorites like scallops, shrimp, clams, and oysters, as well as lobster bisque. For dessert, savor a cobbler made with local apples and topped with fresh-made vanilla ice cream.
Dinner begins with an autumn squash soup with maple yogurt garnish, followed by beef braised in Yuengling black and tan beer from Pennsylvania, accompanied by smoked local fingerling potatoes and braised red cabbage. A warm pear and fig cobbler, served with cinnamon ice cream, is the perfect finish to your meal.
The lunch menu is only $30, and dinner is just $40. All guests enjoying these special fixed price menus for lunch or dinner in the American Bounty will also receive a gift of chocolate truffles, prepared by students in the CIA's Baking and Pastry Associate Degree program. Also included is a choice of a Sparkler, coffee, tea, or iced tea with your meal.
These special menus are available Tuesday through Saturday from November 1 through December 20, 2007. Prices do not include tax or service.
