Historic inn and restaurant features locally grown and sourced foods
The Paso Robles Inn Steakhouse has added new items to its lunch and dinner menus. In addition to its signature items, the steakhouse is increasing its locally grown and sourced cuisine with new, innovative dishes. New menu items include the Wild Mushroom Tagliatelle with pea vines, truffle butter, and parmigiano-Reggiano.
In re-designing the menu, Battle of the Bay winner and Executive Chef Paul Arangorin recognized the popularity and demand of some of the signature dishes, which remain on the menus, but added new fresh salads, sandwiches, pastas and more. Customers will still be able to order their favorite steak, served with a choice of potato, fresh vegetable and sauce; the ever-popular Prime Rib; or the signature Grilled Artichoke which was recently featured in Westways Magazine.
The new menu items feature naturally raised beef from California, Morro Bay oysters, locally caught halibut, as well as a myriad of locally grown and sustainable produce like fresh spring peas and tendrils, asparagus, kale, artichokes and wild mushrooms. The Chef’s Garden at the Inn provides many ingredients, including chilies, fresh basil, and heirloom tomatoes; all of the pastas are handcrafted.
Arangorin’s inspiration for this menu is the bounty of fresh, available ingredients that are abundant along the Central Coast. “I wanted to serve wonderful local produce and naturally raised meats, and give them the opportunity to shine by balancing the flavors and textures of each ingredient.”
New menu items include:
• Steak Bites with garlic sourdough bread, chipotle aioli, and tomato and shallot salad
• Heirloom Tomato Salad with locally grown tomatoes, burrata cheese, and California olive oil
• Pork Belly Bao with hoisin, cucumber, cilantro, garden chilies, scallions, rock sugar, and peanuts
• Duck Confit with white bean cassoulette, sausage, pancetta, baby tomatoes, sherry vinegar, and fresh parsley
• Crispy Pork Belly with poached egg, wild mushrooms, crème fraîche, and mash potatoes
• Wild Mushroom Tagliatelle with pea vines, truffle butter, and parmigiano-Reggiano
The Cattlemen’s Lounge is also boasting a whole new menu of signature drinks, all based on history of the Inn. With names like Barbary Coast, Marilyn’s Kiss, and The Dirty James, each one comes with its own recipe and story. In the newly-renovated Coffee Shop, iced coffees, caramel macchiatos, and other specialty coffees are steaming up the place.
