Even if you are familiar with The Grand America Hotel, you may have a difficult time recognizing it on your next visit. New menus have been designed for lunch, dinner and happy hour, which can all be enjoyed on the beautiful terrace to complete the dining experience.

For starters, try the soup du jour, steamed clams, Ahi tuna tartare or grilled shrimp. Then choose between a sandwich (roasted chicken, house-made pastrami, deluxe burger, blackened catfish) and a handcrafted pasta and entree (spinach agnolotti, parmesan gnocchi carbonara, four cheese ravioli, chicken pot pie, smoked Idaho trout, Ahi tune "Nicoise"). End the meal by satisfying your sweet tooth with a scrumptious dessert (fresh fruit, chocolate brownie gateau, bread pudding and more). 

If you are there later in the day, enjoy the new dinner menu. The menu includes many of the starters offered at lunch plus calamari, oysters and a few more. There are no sandwiches offered for dinner, but there are savory pastas and entrees including scallops, New York strip, duck breast, lamb loin, Scottish salmon and other dishes that are also offered at lunch. You may choose from vegetables to be served on the side of your order.

If you are looking for a relaxing Sunday out of the house, The Grand offers an unbelievable brunch, featuring freshly prepared, all-you-can-eat delicacies. There is seafood, roast, sushi and an assortment of desserts including cakes, pies, bread pudding and an endless chocolate fountain.

If brunch is not your thing, then how about afternoon tea? Guests are served with china designed exclusively for the hotel. There are floor-to-ceiling windows allowing for a beautiful view while you relax and enjoy your tea. Along with the tea, strawberries and Creme Chantilly, finger sandwiches, English scones and an assortment of pastries will be offered.

Make sure to experience these events and yummy new menus on the terrace, which is available for you to relax on every day of the week. The terrace provides diners with casual al fresco seating on a white Bethel granite patio surrounded by lushly-landscaped beds perfect for a relaxing meal no matter the time of day.
