New Menu in Nathaniel's Restaurant, Hawthorne Hotel

Here is the new season's menu for Nathaniel's Restaurant at the Hawthorne Hotel, here in Salem, Massachusetts.

One of the exciting new things about this menu is the debut of 'demi' portions on many of the entrees. If you are like me, and like to try a number of small courses, instead of having lot of food of one kind, this might be exactly what you are looking for.

In this way we can have an appetizer, a salad, and an entree, and still have room for dessert! I hope you enjoy our new format as much as we do.

To make reservations for Nathaniel's, you may call there directly, 978-825-4311. While reservations are not required, they are always appreciated.
