Fresh Spring Menus

April 25, 2013

Spring is finally here, and that means it’s time to get out and enjoy the freshest menus of the season.  The Drake Hotel is welcoming spring with fresh menu items in the Cape Cod and Coq d’Or.   Coq d’Or is known for the seasonal Quiche and this spring is no different. The featured savory baked egg custard with seasonal vegetables in a homemade crust, is served with petite gem lettuce and an heirloom tomato vinaigrette making this fluffy quiche a flavor you’re sure to enjoy.   Also new on the menu is a Mezze Platter which features the freshest flavors of the season with a unique duo of dips. The Fava Bean Hummus incorporates all the jewels of spring with mint, cilantro, green onion, jalapeño, and rice wine vinegar.  The Spiced Eggplant Spread is blended with caramelized onions, dark roasted eggplant, and has a tartness that comes from dried mango and pomegranate.  Served with vegetable crudite and warm Naan bread. Cape Cod also has a fresh menu featuring grilled Mahi Mahi topped with a variety of spring vegetables, making this dish not only a tasty choice but a healthy one too.  The 8 oz Mahi Mahi is grilled and served with a mix of toasted orzo, including red pepper coulis, haricot vert, roasted red bell peppers and served with capers and chopped kalamata olives. Vibrant spring colors shine in the new seasonal Mussels.  The mussels are from Prince Edward Island's mussel industry, which is Canada’s top producer and exporter of rope cultured blue mussels. The one pound of mussels are cooked in white wine, leaks, garlic chips and served with a grilled crostini.
