Sugar Hill Inn
Found in the heart of New Hampshire’s ski country near Cannon, Loon Mountains and the Breton Woods Ski Area, the Sugar Hill Inn offers guests gourmet dining in an elegant and romantic atmosphere among candlelight. After visiting their favorite mountain, skiers often return to the inn for tea and hot cider from the tavern. The European-inspired dining room reflects Executive Chef Val Fortin's four-course menu, which is always made from scratch using local ingredients whenever possible. Offering a balance of flavors, the menu is perfectly proportioned to make sure guests can enjoy the variety of the courses. The Inn actually limits the number of reservations and menu items so that everything can be cooked to order and personally served.
Appetizers include Sautéed Veal Sweetbreads, Sage-Infused Potato Gnocchi with red wine sauce or Ragout of Wild Mushrooms, Cheese Fondue and Sunny Side Up Quail Egg. Innovative entrées include Duck Three Ways, a Sautéed Breast, Confit of Leg and Foie Gras Ravioli, Gingered Cauliflower, French-Cut Green Beans and Orange Gastrique. Another sumptuous choice is the Rack of Australian Lamb with an Almond Croquette Potato, Broccolini, Carrot Pernod Purée and Maple Rosemary Demi Glace.
