Dear Friends,

Autumn, our favorite season, has arrived. That wonderful period after the family days of summer and before the holidays. Autumn is when we enjoy and celebrate our friends.

Speaking of favorites, our Wine & Dine Series will return on a limited basis, featuring the Rioja wines of Bodegas Franco-Españolas on October 5th. This dinner should be exceptional, as Bodegas is a historic Logroños estate (extolled by Hemingway in Death in the Afternoon) which this year is celebrating its 125th anniversary.

Executive Chef Lucas Sousa’s cuisine is hitting on all cylinders at the moment. Breakfast, lunch, but especially at dinner!

See you soon.

Wishing you the best,

Peter and Cecilia Rait
Owners, Beacon Hill Hotel & Bistro

Fall Flavors
Duck #2

This autumn, the Bistro is celebrating the tastes and flavors of classic, cool New England with Executive Chef Lucas Sousa’s brand new fall menu. To start, try our seasonal Maple Brooks farm burrata with lacinato kale, Granny Smith apple, spiced walnuts, pickled mustard seeds and apple cider vinaigrette. For entrees, how about our spiced duck breast? Chef Sousa brines the duck for an entire day in a spiced honey brine, served alongside local fall vegetables and local cranberry beans braised in stout beer, herbs and brown sugar. Emphasizing the wide array of fresh ingredients coming straight from our local farms and fishermen, these delicious dishes do for the palate what they do for the imagination. Enjoy the fantastic flavors of fall at Beacon Hill Bistro! (Pictured: Spiced Duck)
