New Year's Eve 2012 at the Rogues' Harbor Inn

Wagyu Wellington with mushroom duxell and red wine demi glace
Rogues' is a memorable place to ring the new year and the old place has celebrated quite a few. New Year's Eve we usually have a full house of overnight guests in our Bed and Breakfast. Our economical winter rate is $109 on a Monday evening and that alone attracts guests from near and far. We do have many other favorable attributes (historic ambiance, locally sourced globally inspired cuisine, our own craft brews, generous Finger Lakes wine list), but who can resist a bargain? Guests can enjoy dinner, Karaoke and as many drinks as they like without worrying about designating a driver. Walking upstairs when you're ready for bed is a welcome luxury. We do suggest reservations for dinner whether you're staying the night or heading home...
Chef Luke has outdone himself this year. Our special offerings for New Year's Eve are:

A p p e t I z e r:

Tempura lobster lollipop
Panko breaded Lobster tail deep fried & served on a lollipop stick
With spicy Thai sauce     9.00

Seafood bisque     2.50 & 3.50

Christmas Eve Dinner 2012 at the Rogues' Harbor Inn

Roasted Rack of Lamb with cranberry demi glace
It's hard to believe another year is nearly over and the holidays are here. We have much to be grateful for: a wonderful staff, the nicest guests on earth, a 182 year old inn (still standing, knock on wood)...Life is good.
We'll be grateful for a day or two off too. We will be closed Christmas Day and New Year's Day. But, we will be celebrating and spreading good cheer Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve with lots of seasonal specials and live music. Our inn is a memorable place to celebrate the holidays in the heart of the Finger Lakes.
Christmas Eve is my favorite. Everyone is on their way to church or a beloved relative's house- smiling, glowing even. We serve lots of contented guests for an early dinner; we close at 8 pm. Then we're off to spend the evening with our families.Chef Luke enjoys preparing holiday offerings. Reservations are suggested (607) 533-3535 and the specials for the evening are:
