Easter Sunday found us at Bittersweet Farm in Westport, Ma. It’s a beautiful rustic building with a Tavern downstairs and a two-story restaurant upstairs. We had 3:30 reservations. As you can imagine the place was hopping (on Easter-hee hee)…but we were seated within minutes. We were on the main floor as requested and sat admiring our lovely surroundings. Our very nice server handed us menus and gave us a few minutes to look over the drinks. When she came back with a terrific looking bread basket…we ordered two martinis. The Bittersweet ……. White Godiva Chocolate Liqueur, Amaretto and White Crème de Cocoa, swirled with chocolate syrup and The Milky Way ….. Vanilla Vodka, Buttershots, Baileys, Godiva Chocolate Liqueur, drizzled with chocolate and caramel. Both turned out to be absolutely delicious as was the bread basket. It consisted of French bread slices and warm corn muffins accompanied by red pepper jelly and honey butter. We put in our order for an appetizer….Brie en croute (brie in a pastry crust) with garlic and cranberries and assorted crackers. This turned out to be an outstanding choice. Then we both received a crisp chilled Caesar salad…which was very good. I then decided to go with the Emma’s chicken…a boneless breast with a maple/cranberry sauce. My sides were a perfectly baked potato and broccoli. Laura went with a Beef Wellington which was accompanied by garlic smashed potatoes and broccoli. Both meals were cooked to perfection and so tasty. Then even though we were full (stuffed), we decided to have dessert and coffee. I had a creme brulee with fresh berries and a cappuccino, Laura had a Bittersweet Kiss – House Specialty….. warm brownie tart with chocolate ganache over a layer of raspberry coulis and white chocolate sauce, topped with vanilla bean ice cream and she had a Bittersweet Coffee….with Godiva and Chambord. What an ending to our feast. Both coffees and desserts were divine.
We will definitely be back and we’re already thinking about their Thanksgiving buffet.
