Braeburn - what to order?

I'm going for the first time tomorrow, and would love to hear about any standouts on the dinner menu.

    When I went for dinner a few weeks ago, the Long Island duck breast with brandied prune confit was nicely prepared. The duck was tender, moist, cooked medium rare. Sauces that came with the duck were a little on the sweet side, but they worked. I also liked the warm smoked trout appetizer.

    On the other hand, my Long Island striped bass was not very fresh at all. It could've been an off night, but I'm not tempted to try it, again.

      The duck looks good. Thanks!

      Very nice blog, by the way... apple cobbler looks tempting...

        My pleasure, completely. Sorry the pictures are so dark and poorly taken, actually. I wish you could see the duck entree more clearly.

          The duck and the apple cobbler were very good. I also enjoyed my appetizer, the poached and panko crusted farm egg with white cheddar grits.

          Nice cozy room, great service. We plan to return soon.

            Thanks for reporting back! That farm egg sounds delicious. I was wavering between the farm egg and trout when I went. The farm egg is the next to go....
