The Beach Cafe at the Woodmark Hotel is open again after more than a year of being closed.
The lake-side cafe will be open from Wednesday to Saturday from 5 pm to 9 pm, and will be open for Sunday brunch from 10 am to 2 pm.
Chef Brian Doherty has developed a smaller menu for dining service that he says is affordable and fresh. Doherty said the menu will introduce guests to some new dishes while also offering some Beach Cafe signature items like the Woodmark Seafood Cioppino and the Smoked Akaushi New York Strip, which include duck fat fries.
For added variety, the menu will also include a Daily Fresh Sheet where guests can choose from the day’s freshest seafood options and can choose from multiple preparation techniques.
The brunch menu includes Corned Beef Hash with Spanish Chorizo and Seared Wild Scallops with Spring Morel Mushrooms.
For dessert, Doherty highlighted the classic Baked Alaska ice cream treat, which comes from the kitchen looking like a fire-kissed work of art.
Doherty said the pandemic which forced the cafe to close in early 2020 was incredibly frustrating as the business had “huge plans,” for 2020.
“After a very long year, we are delighted to welcome guests back to Beach Café,” said Arlis Ceretti, Food & Beverage Director at The Woodmark Hotel & Still Spa. “Chef Brian and the team have worked diligently to create a seasonal menu with signature dishes that are sure to become fan favorites.”
