On our way to Canada to visit the Niagra Falls, we stopped at the Belhurst Castle in Geneva, NY for dinner. My aunt had read about Belhurst in a traveler’s brochure and thought it sounded interesting. The building was built as a private residence, but served as a casino and a speakeasy during Prohibition. Today, it is a multi functioning building that serves as a spa, an inn, a banquet hall, and offers two restaurants in a unique setting.

We were immediately greeted with fresh bread and a trio of whipped butter, including a strawberry cream cheese flavor as well as my personal favorite – the rosemary infused. For our meals, we all decided to order the pre fixe, which included 4 courses for $33 ($36 with an upgrade for my soup). I started with a mussel and saffron bisque, followed by a garden salad with avocado ranch dressing and fresh cracked peppercorn, leading to my main dish – seared tenderloin medallions with sautéed bourbon apple slices and NYS cheddar grits. Dessert was a warm brownie with ice cream and caramel sauce. Yum!

After dinner, guests are invited to enjoy a digestif at one of the property’s lounges, or to relax by the outdoor firepit with a beautiful view of Lake Seneca.Dining at Belhurst Castle in Geneva, NY DSC00604 Dining at Belhurst Castle in Geneva, NY DSC00605 Dining at Belhurst Castle in Geneva, NY DSC00611 Dining at Belhurst Castle in Geneva, NY DSC00619 Dining at Belhurst Castle in Geneva, NY DSC00621 Dining at Belhurst Castle in Geneva, NY DSC00638 Dining at Belhurst Castle in Geneva, NY DSC00644 Dining at Belhurst Castle in Geneva, NY DSC00650 Dining at Belhurst Castle in Geneva, NY DSC00661 Dining at Belhurst Castle in Geneva, NY DSC00686 Dining at Belhurst Castle in Geneva, NY DSC00690 Dining at Belhurst Castle in Geneva, NY DSC00706 Dining at Belhurst Castle in Geneva, NY DSC00707
