The dish begins with a generous filet of perfectly seared and crisp sea bass atop a bed of creamy leek fondue. Sauced with vintage port wine reduction and a truffle vinaigrette, this cant-miss seafood dish is upscale, elegant, and pairs perfectly with a glass of red.
Braised Rabbit Leg
Once the rabbit leg is lightly browned, it is then slow braised in Belgian ale for several hours. This technique draws out all of the amazingly unique flavors of the meat. Drizzled with a grain-mustard sauce, the braised rabbit leg is served alongside roasted shallots, carrots, and spinach-whipped potatoes. Homey, hearty, and perfect for a winter date night!
A signature menu item, Cape Dutch’s elk chop is simple, flavorful, and stunning. Cooked to perfection and cut to order; the game is served alongside spaghetti squash, sautéed oyster mushrooms, and a poached lady apple filled with a berry compote. Paired with the cocktail of your choice (or whatever the expert sommeliers recommend), this dish has quickly become one of our must-orders.
