Marek's Collier House
1121 Bald Eagle Drive
Never mind that the Royal Wedding invitations got lost in the mail, you’ll still be able to dine royally tonight at Marek’s Collier House Restaurant, where award-winning Chef Peter Marek has created a Royal Wedding Feast fit for a British monarch. In addition, Penny Marek was in London last week and she brought all the proper British bunting and flags to decorate the place, said Chef Marek.
That’s not all.
During this week The Bar and Bistro @ Marek's has been tarted up with all the proper British buntings and flags to evoke a British pub feel during pre-wedding week. Dine indoors or out on the patio while enjoying the regular menu along with traditional English goodies such as Chef Marek’s home-made Sausage Rolls, savory Cornish Pasties stuffed with veggies and meats and a real treat, Cottage Pie, a beef, root vegetable and potato mélange that’s filled Royal Brits’ and commoners’ tummies for centuries.
“Come and celebrate the happy occasion with us — we want to give all our dinner guests this evening a British experience, although my guess is that most them (customers) will be Brits anyway,” explained Chef Marek, referring to tonight’s dinner service starting at 5 p.m. in the Main Restaurant; The Royal Wedding full 4 course prix fixe meal is $30, including a glass of wine. Reservations recommended, please call 642-9948
The Kate and William Celebration Menu begins with choice of four appetizers: Cornish Crab and Fish Cakes; Norfolk Tomato and Mozzarella Rolls; Savory Stuffed Pancakes or Jersey Cream of Mushroom Soup followed by the house salad middle course. The piquant prelude heralds splendid choices of five entrees crowned with Chef Marek’s special Bucklebury Half Roast Duck with Black Cherry Sauce fit for a princess and named in honor of Kate’s home town, said the chef.
In addition, dinner guests may also choose to feast on equally regal Scottish Salmon with Honey Dijon Mustard Crust; or Princess Kate Tilapia and Mixed Seafood wrapped in Phyllo and topped with Shellfish cream Sauce. Hearty noblemen are honored with traditional London Steak and Mushroom Pie while ladies in waiting may choose The Queen’s Lamb Curry with Cucumber Raiita. All entrees accompanied with the Chef’s choice of appropriate side dishes.
Crowning the royal repast, Chef Marek, recreates traditional Royal Wedding sweets for a dessert selection that includes a Cherry Trifle and more.
“We also want to bring some British cheer to the Island with our London Pride beer available on draft in our new Bar and Bistro. We invite everyone to come and have a glass of London Pride beer to toast the Royal couple,” said Chef Peter Marek along with Peter Jr. and his wife Hannah.
The Bar and Bistro serves a regular menu with many British specials from 4 p.m., with indoor and outdoor casual dining. Happy Hour, is from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. with live music from 6:30 p.m.
