Expressing Themselves with Flavor: The Belvedere Inn
No one does the new year like Lancaster City. From the warmly lit windows of shops’ to the lights strung across the avenues, a trip Downtown guarantees lifted spirits and full hearts during these cold winter months. But, we all know what the best part of the City is—the food. With its unmatched cuisine culture, Downtown Lancaster brings together fantastic flavors, always with fun twists to keep each dish fresh. One of the incredible establishments that is definitely a must-visit downtown location is The Belvedere Inn.
Established in 1998, The Belvedere Inn connects friends and family over fine dining in gorgeous Downtown Lancaster. This Victorian Italianate style city mansion provides an elegant dining opportunity to enjoy contemporary American cuisine, crafted by expert chefs committed to excellence. Their friendly staff will always make you feel not just welcome but at home. From mouth-watering appetizers to jaw-dropping entrees, each item on The Belvedere menu was crafted with detailed care.
We had the pleasure of enjoying a mini-preview of the specialty dish currently at The Belvedere, seared Duck Breast. Prepared with pumpkin spears, chanterelles, broccolini, and hibiscus leaves this rich explosion of flavors fills you with all things warm and inviting. The meat has a crisp exterior that when pierced by the knife, perfectly slices into a mouth-watering piece.
The minute you bite into this dish, a juicy, tender, almost steak flavor envelops your taste buds, followed by a lingering savory flavor that will leave your mouth asking for more. Creative genius & Executive Chef, Daniel LeBoon, developed this masterpiece. Inspired by the themes of the season, this dish is presented as beautifully as mountains coated in the snow under a starlit sky.
We immediately fell in love with this dish and are already planning to head back for more! Combine the delicious food with a delightful atmosphere and you have the perfect space for family reunions, anniversaries, or a party!
The Belvedere fuses unique flavors from around the world with Lancaster County favorites, all while using the freshest local ingredients, grown here in Lancaster. Their extensive menu is prime to introduce to friends and family alike, allowing them to taste the exceptional cuisine our City offers. This gorgeous venue also includes 2nd-floor seating with a private bar that can be rented out for large gatherings! With ample seating, a variety of menu options, and call-ahead reservations, The Belvedere Inn is perfectly suited to host any momentous upcoming occasion.
Plan your visit to Belvedere Inn today to taste for yourself the explosive flavors of Chef Daniel LeBoon. Be sure to also visit their new sister restaurant’s, C’est La Vie for casual fine dining with character and Josephine’s for a sensory experience.
