Fall Newsletter

Hard to believe this is the Fall newsletter, the Autumn Equinox, with the full moon, sailing and temps in the high 70’s!! We’ll take it; perhaps it makes up for June, somewhat!


Chillingsworth is now open Fri & Sat evenings. PLEASE NOTE: Through the early Fall  we now offer the entire menu as an a la carte option in addition to the 7 course Table d’Hote choice for those of you who may prefer to choose just what you want; a first!! For Example: an App. & a Main; or three Apps: or 3 Desserts!! Whatever you desire!!

Chills Bistro is now serving 6 nights a week from 5pm. Closed Monday. The early 3 course special is available from 5-6, please note that orders must be in by 6 so we recommend 5:30/5:45 for reservations if you want the early special. Our regular menu is available all night as are the “Small Plates” in the Bar only.



The Game Dinner: Saturday October 19th.  Once again we honor the Fall season with the annual Game dinner. This year we will feature Game Hen, Rabbit, Elk, Antelope & local fish & shellfish: certainly lobster and oysters; all paired with appropriates wines. Beginning as usual in the garden & patio, weather permitting, we have some awesome hors d’oeuvres planned along the Game theme, with Trimbach Pinot Blanc & for those who wish to indulge, Beach plum Martinis!!  Dinner will follow in the dining rooms: multi-course with wine pairings. The featured winery is Keenan, rated at well over 90+ in the wine Spectator. We will have a rep from the winery fly in for the evening. The evening will also include Schug Pinot Noir. The additional wines will include Chardonnay, Merlot & Cabernet Sauvignon, all from the featured winery Keenan. Stephanie, our Pastry chef has a special treat in store for the dessert course!  Reception, 5 courses, with wines, Tax & Gratuity @ $135 inclusive ** Please look for the entire menu posted on the www.chillingsworth.com website next week.
