Confession: I’ve never been to Beaches & Cream at the Yacht Club. I know, I know. I’ve never taken part in a Kitchen Sink or enjoyed any of the comfort foods the menu boasts. Since Matt & I were able to enjoy a few nights at the resort for the opening weekend of Food & Wine, we had the perfect opportunity to stop in on our resort day, grab a seat at the bar, and enjoy.
Matt is a huge fan of pot roast, so he ordered the Open-faced Pot Roast Sandwich on Fresh-baked Sourdough Bread served on top of Mashed Potatoes and Mushroom Gravy. While he greatly dislikes mushrooms, he went ahead and ordered the dish. When he saw another guests order being prepared, he was a bit nervous about the number of mushrooms in the gravy as there were quite a few. Fortunately, they were fairly large and intact and easily moved off to the side.
The sandwich was topped with fried shoestring potatoes. Yum!
As I previously mentioned, the mushrooms were fairly large and easily moved out of the way, so if you’re not a fan of them, don’t be deterred. I tasted a bit of the sandwich, but am not a fan of pot roast, and this was indeed pot roasty.
Oh yeah, and you can get Pink Lemonade too!
The Beaches Rachel Sandwich, a Reuben-esque sandwich, had originally caught my eye, but I had to call an audible and ordered the Grilled Cheese and Tomato Bisque when I saw it. The six-cheese blend on sourdough really sounded delicious, and being served with bisque made it sound more grown up and a bit decadent.
The bisque had a nice creaminess to it, with some bits of rendered tomato that gave it a fresh flavor. I really enjoyed dipping the sandwich into the bisque, and it was a fantastic, slightly more grown up version of the childhood classic.
The six-cheese blend was perfectly melted through, and the cheese to bread ratio was just right. The toasty bread had a caramelized crispness that complimented the cheese.
Here is a look at the September 29th menu:
My first experience at Beaches & Cream was a delicious one, even though we were too full for dessert. I know I’ll be back to sample more of the menu and try one of the sundaes or other desserts available. Apart from the Kitchen Sink, which item do you think is a must have from the restaurant?
