Dine & Dash extra: Beauty at the Broadmoor's revamped Tavern

Posted By on Tue, Mar 19, 2013 at 12:17 PM

In tomorrow's Dine & Dash column, I'll give a sweeping overview of several plates sampled at the Broadmoor's recently renovated Tavern.

That will conclude my recent coverage related to the Broadmoor's Sommelier Boot Camp, which I attended the weekend before last.

As I'll note tomorrow, in between wine classes, I was treated to a media lunch inside the beautiful new atrium area called Le Jardin, which highlights a captivating new 16-foot chandelier.

Our party shared bites from across the new menu, which launched in late February, and to summarize my already short synopsis tomorrow into even more concise terms: Everything was spot-on.

Here's a look at the atrium and individual plates (please click each image for maximum effect), which will speak plenty for themselves:

  • It's hard not to note the chandelier upon entry, which stands out even more with early evening light.

  • Just imagine your delight when you pop this poached egg and watch its yolk run over this Dungeness jumbo lump crab cake and into the underlying spinach cream sauce.
