In response to popular request, The Bay Tower is now offering guests a choice of a prix-fixe menu in addition to its regular, seasonal ala carte fare. The new menu will be served Monday through Thursday from 5:00pm to 9:00pm in the main dining room as well as upstairs in the Custom House Lounge, and will be priced at $40.00 per person. Reservations will not be required for guests to dine in the upstairs lounge. Featured on the new gourmet menu will be four courses selected from the regular seasonal menu that will change periodically to give diners a chance to experience many of the delicious creations put together by executive chef Paul Diogenes. The introductory menu features an appetizer and second course of Salmon Pastrami rolled in crispy potato cake, grilled onions with a honey Dijon sauce, and a Red Snapper with a pomme fondant, snow pea salad and sauce vierge. The dinner entree features Chicken en Croute stuffed with port soaked fig puree, mashed potatoes, sauteed spinach and a fig molasses. The dessert finale is Bay Tower’s signature Creme Brulee du jour. “Our participation and success in Boston’s recent 2002 Restaurant Week celebration solidified the idea of implementing a Gourmet prix-fixe dining option at The Bay Tower,” said Paul Diogenes, Executive Chef, The Bay Tower. “The perception is that The Bay Tower is only for special occasions or that romantic night out. I want to let people know that The Bay Tower is also a perfect destination for a mid-week dinner, or drink after work to unwind with friends or colleagues.” Among some recent acclaim this year, The Bay Tower, holds the “Five-Star Millennium Award” from the International Restaurant & Hospitality Rating Bureau, the Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator and is named one of Boston’s Top Rated Restaurants by Zagat’s.
