In her new role, Aishling has already started to put her imprint on Restaurant Latour, which includes a new menu this month. The menu follows the rhythm of the growing seasons and changes frequently, sometimes even daily, and two options are offered: a four course prix-fixe with multiple choices in each category ($115) and a seven course Chef’s Tasting menu ($155). The tasting menu is designed as a progression of dishes (not available on the prix-fixe) that highlight the best ingredients of the season. Each menu can be paired with selections from the restaurant’s award-winning wine cellar (recently inducted to Wine Enthusiast’s Hall of Fame), with 40 wines available by the glass that provide the sommeliers the flexibility to create unique pairings for each guest’s menu and preferences ($55 pairing for the prix fixe, $65 for Chef’s Tasting pairing).

Restaurant Latour is located at 1 Wild Turkey Way, Hamburg, NJ in the Clubhouse at Crystal Springs Resort.  The restaurant serves dinner Thursday – Sunday from 5pm till 10pm.

Crystal Springs is New Jersey’s only four-season resort and also one of the largest golf resorts in the world with 6 award-winning courses. The property consists of two hotels, the AAA 4-diamond Grand Cascades Lodge and Minerals Resort & Spa, 10 restaurants, 2 award winning spas, a mountain top Adventure Center and more.
