LENOX, Mass., June 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Blantyre Country Estate, one of only 12 gilded-age mansions in the Berkshires, has announced the launch of Café Boulud New York at Blantyre from early July through mid-October, 2020. During this time, Chef Boulud's well-trained team will undertake dinner service Wednesday through Sunday, weekend brunch, and private parties at the charming Relais and Châteaux property.
"It is an honor to be collaborating with a culinary innovator like Daniel Boulud, whose presence will elevate Blantyre to a world-class dining destination," says Linda S. Law, Owner and Steward. "Now more than ever people want to enjoy special moments with an added measure of safety and security. We are thrilled to be able to create this for our guests in our expansive 110-acre setting, which was designed for social distancing," she adds.
A seasonal pop-up bringing the flavors of the original award-winning Café Boulud on New York's Upper East Side to the Berkshires for the very first time, Café Boulud at Blantyre will offer the finesse of seasonal French cuisine with the warm hospitality of a neighborhood café. Utilizing fresh and local ingredients – many sourced directly from suppliers around the region – guests can expect summery French classics with a twist.
Beyond weekend brunch and dinner service, specialty dining experiences will also be offered. From delicious picnics amidst colorful gardens and lush lawns, to intimate celebrations, Chef Daniel Boulud's team will create a variety of inspired culinary moments throughout the sprawling estate.
Says Boulud, "We've had a wonderful relationship with Relais & Châteaux properties in America over the years and we're looking forward to expanding this relationship by bringing the Café Boulud experience to a property as historically revered as Blantyre. We are excited to share the spirit and traditions of our cuisine at Café Boulud, and match it with the exquisite wine offerings of the estate."
Meal service throughout the property will be introduced in complete compliance with state and CDC guidelines. Reservations will be accepted immediately. For more information, please call 413.637.3556 or email [email protected].
