The Dining Experience
“The Dining Hall” is a prix fixe* and table de hote** fine dining restaurant situated just off the lobby; and, next to Hope and Glory’s bar “Detention”. This nationally acclaimed boutique hotel was once a schoolhouse - thus the names.
These stylish menus enable our Chef Meseret to focus on offering our dining guests the ultimate fine dining experience where the type of menu enables her and her staff to showcase not only her talent; but, also enables her to source local seafood, vegetables and fruits. Local shellfish, especially oysters and crab; and, local fish are always included in the menu which changes weekly.
Though Hope and Glory overnight guests have priority seating, the Dining Hall is open to everyone with advanced reservations.
There is limited seating permitting just 20 guests. However,your table is yours for the evening allowing a progressive pace; but, one that suits you.
