Planning a date night in Uptown? Consider a mouth-watering dinner at The Asbury.

The restaurant inside the historic Dunhill Hotel launched a three-course menu highlighting local strawberries from Boy and Girl Farm and Harmony Ridge Farms.

CLTtoday received a glimpse into the prix fixe dinner menu:

  • Strawberry Bibb Salad: roasted beets, lemon feta vinaigrette, biscuit croutons
  • Thyme-Roasted Duck Breast: farm and sparrow farro, fresh greens, strawberry basil relish — the perfect combination of savory and tart + tender protein.
  • Strawberry Tart: lemon semifreddo, strawberry crunch

Editor’s note: There’s a strawberry cocktail included with dinner and it’s berry fresh.

Executive Chef Tim Groody highlights the seasonal fruit in each menu item. The prix fixe strawberry menu is $50 per person + will conclude Friday, May 31.

Pro tip: Make a reservation in advance. The restaurant tends to be busy before events at Blumenthal Arts Center and Knight Theater.
