The Grille or Golf?

The highlight of my week was shooting for the Mount Anthony Country Club‘s restaurant, The Grille, which is literally around the corner from my studio. The owners asked me to come up and shoot some of the items on the menu, of which I had heard good things from family and friends. The executive chef, Eric Pierce and his staff put together some really nice dishes and after trying each one, it’s fair to say The Grille is now on my shortlist of favorite restaurants. If you haven’t had a chance to go for dinner, lunch, or Sunday brunch, I highly recommend it. Oh, and did I mention the renovated 18-hole golf course with some of the most beautiful vistas in Bennington, VT? Go for the golf, stay for the food!

Sesame-encrusted tuna appetizer

Scrumptious fresh smoked salmon sushi

I really like the presentation of this sushi roll, and it tasted even better 😉

Scallops Florentina. Pan-seared sea scallops with fresh hearbs, garlic, lemon, tri-colors bell peppers, baby spinach and mushrooms, with a side of rice and garnished with a sweet basil leaf.

Turf Sliders. Seasoned beef tenderloin medallions grilled and served on toasted croutes topped with balsamic glazed onions and Vermont blue cheese. Accompanied with battered green beans and a wasabi ranch dipping sauce, and paired with a cold pint of Switchback ale. (This was hands down my favorite dish, and the battered green beans with the dipping sauce is a refreshing change from fries.)

Asian Ginger Tuna

Asian Ginger Tuna. Fresh Ahi tuna in a ginger soy marinade pan-seared and topped with a citrus fruit salsa.

Chicken a la Greque

Chicken a la Greque. Fresh chicken breast pan-seared with mushrooms, garlic, diced tomatoes, herbs, Kalamata olives, artichoke hearts, white wine, fresh lemon and feta cheese.
