Easter Brunch at the Orchard Inn

Easter BrunchIt may seem like you’re just getting back into the swing of things since Christmas, but trust us, Easter will be here before you know it! Make this Easter one to remember by spending it with your loved one(s) in Asheville, North Carolina. Here at the Orchard Inn, we offer an Easter Brunch like no other. So on Sunday, April 20th, wake up in your guest room or cottage and allow the aroma of fresh coffee to lead you to our dining room to share your special day with us.

You can enjoy breathtaking mountain views from each and every table in our dining room. Theses surroundings and the culinary artistry in our kitchen will have you wanting to return again and again.

Here’s a sample of our Brunch menu, which will be even more delicious for Easter!

You’ll start your meal with an appetizer, such as a seasonal fruit plate accompanied by “fresh from the oven” Rosemary Popovers with Honey Butter. And next comes the main course…

Choose from several options, like poached eggs resting above white cheddar cheese, scallions, deluxe white ham and toasted english muffins with bacon or sausage, or flambeed banana-stuffed French Toast topped with a fresh local berry sauce. If you’re not hungry for breakfast, try whiskey flambeed tiger shrimp served with truffled grits and prosciutto-wrapped melon or fennel braised chicken with a chopped green olive and shallot infused sauce, grits and fresh seasonal vegetables. It’s all about you here at the Orchard Inn.

For the final course, we may offer white and dark chocolate molten cake or peach cobbler with vanilla bean ice cream. Sound yummy? Trust us, it is!

We also pride ourselves on our Orchard Inn Coffee, which is a special blend of organic Ethiopian Yirgacheffe and Papua New Guinea freshly-roasted beans. We serve Harney and Sons Silk Sachet teas as well.

The good news about our restaurant at the Orchard Inn is that it’s also open for dinner. Sure, you’ll be satisfied with our splendid Easter Brunch, but it will have you wanting to come back for more! That’s why you can enjoy a warm meal and relax in front of our fireplace with a glass of fine wine. Begin with soup or salad, choosing from summer vegetable or cold cucumber with fresh mint. Our organic green salad with hearts of palm, cherry tomatoes, roasted sunflower seeds and Orchard Inn dressing guarantees to impress. And the dinner entrees at our restaurant are especially elaborate! A few options include the Veal San Marco, a veal cutlet with a mushroom/heart of artichoke sauce over risotto with veggies, or certified angus beef tenderloin with caramelized onions, vegetables and roasted baby potatoes. A great choice would be the Orchard Inn Crab Cakes with cilantro lemon butter and homemade tartar sauce. All of these entrees can be paired with a glass or bottle of wine from our extensive list. You truly can’t go wrong no matter what you go with! Just be sure you try the Coup Orchard, which is vanilla ice cream, blackberry cabernet sorbet, whipped cream, toasted almonds and fresh berries.
