Edward and I had dinner at The Bridgetown Mill House in late
March 2010, where on the night that we dined at the restaurant, there was a
choice of a three course Innkeeper's Menu, Chef's Five Course Tasting Menu, as well
as a la carte menu.
For his first course, Edward began with Roasted Quail with
Chipotle and Cranberry Flavored Risotto, and Spicy Roasted Red Pepper Sauce,
which was attractively presented on a square white plate. The quail was
delicately golden and flavorfully enhanced with a sauce that had just the right
level of heat to add interest without overpowering the quail. Paired with a
glass of Shiraz,
it was a lovely introduction to Chef Michael's Sujansky's style.
I had Lobster Bisque with Parsley and Thyme Oil as a first
course, which was presented in a gold trimmed white china bowl. The bisque was
lovely, light, and flavorful with large morsels of succulent lobster that was
enhanced with drizzled parsley and thyme oil. (Chef Michael Sujansky graciously
shares his recipe for the Lobster Bisque in the Chefs' Recipes section.)
Edward continued with a second course of Pan Seared Pork
Chop with Cranberry and Blue Cheese flavored Risotto, Braised Red Cabbage,
Haricot Verts, and Port Wine Sauce, which was presented as a pork chop and
sliced pork on a bed of risotto topped with haricot verts and red cabbage, with
a rich pool of sauce surrounding the risotto.

For my second course, I had Sautéed Atlantic Salmon with
Basil Flavored Whipped Potatoes, Buttered Asparagus, and Bordelaise Sauce,
which was presented as a strip of crispy skin salmon on a mound of whipped
potatoes with asparagus spears heralding the new spring season, and a pool of
Sautéed Atlantic Salmon
Although the restaurant had lovely desserts on the menu,
portions were generous, and we were more than satisfied with two courses for
