Midsommarmiddag is here!

One of the most ancient and revered holidays of the year, the summer solstice carries with it traditions and customs predating our own. In Scandinavia, “Midsummer’s Eve” is considered by many to be the greatest festival of the entire year. The Swedish celebration of the summer solstice is positively delightful, with special food, libations, activities and games. Join us at the Beacon Hill Hotel & Bistro as we commemorate the summer solstice through food & drink with our traditional ‘Midsommarmiddag” or “Midsummer Dinner” beginning Monday, June 17th, 2013 and continuing until Sunday, June 23rd, 2013. Available 5:30PM – 11:00PM for $47.00 per person, the traditional dinner will be a prix fixe menu and served in conjunction with our regular menu and dinner service. Traditional and potent acquavits will also be available. But take care, lest they turn you into a Viking! View the menu here! Don’t miss your chance to celebrate the official arrival of summer with us at Beacon Hill Hotel & Bistro!

Featured Dish: Soft Shell Crab

Soft shell crab season is traditionally marked with the first full moon in May, when the blue crab begins to shed its outer shell to accommodate for its summer growth.  During this molting stage, the blue crab is monitored closely before the shell starts to harden again to make sure consumers receive the highest quality crabs. At Beacon Hill Hotel & Bistro, Lewin approaches all his culinary ventures by incorporating fresh and local ingredients and will be serving Corn Meal Fried Soft Shell Crab with Arabic Salad and Za’atar Gremolata Yogurt ($14) beginning Monday, May 6th, 2013.
