In with the New, Out with the Old

As the year flies by, the culinary minds at the Fearrington House are hard-pressed to keep the menu fresh, in-vogue and delicious. Our chefs flourish under the pressure, and manage to consistently produce cuisine that exceeds one’s standards; with the added benefits of growing fresh produce on property in the gardens, the dishes served to our guests are fresher, more unique and, obviously, more delicious.
The Fearrington House bar is no exception to this. The menu available to all our guests at the bar has expanded to include even more delicious choices, consistent with the quality to be expected at the Restaurant. No reservations are needed – the bar is available to any and everyone who wants to enjoy a locally sourced dish and delicious craft cocktail or glass of wine.
Among the new dishes is a plate of Sweet Jesus oysters on the half shell, with a fresh garden twist with cucumbers from the gardens. The oysters live up to the name “Sweet Jesus” on their own, but the Chef’s preparation and presentation are the other half of a very delicious coin. If oysters don’t float your boat, we are proud to offer a Wagyu beef tartare, served with a light sprinkling of foie gras and light, airy crisps to make for a delightfully rich dish. To bring it all back home, there is the House-cured pork served over a bed of sweetcorn and peaches, in a union of southern cuisine, comfort food and fine dining.
At the time of this writing, there are more dishes planned for release, making for an array of different choices. Whether it’s for light group snacking or a deserved personal indulgence, we have something for everyone.
And naturally, along with the new nosh, all the inspiration has brought new cocktails with it, using house-made and homegrown ingredients. You’ll find on our cocktail lists a number of classics, a few fresh contemporaries and an assortment of original signature cocktails only available at the Fearrington House. We invite you to visit the House and treat yourself to our selection of fine foods and delicious drinks.
