The Mirbeau Dining Room serves breakfast, lunch and dinner offering global cuisine inspired by French speaking populations around the world. We use classic methods and source local, Finger Lakes organic, and regional produce, dairy and meats and focus on clean cuisine—no synthetics or preservatives–with healthful interpretations of classic French dishes. Have fun sharing sides to accompany your steaks or seafood. You might even find yourself having to defend your soufflé against others’ advances. Attire is relaxed and refined with no particular need to go with (or without) a jacket.
The Wine Bar/Bistro showcases our interactive, self-service Wine Stations with 24 unique wines for you to explore. Wine Station selections change frequently with such themes as “The Nose Knows-Aromatic Whites”, “Pretty in Pink-Blush Lovelies”, “White Wines We Can’t Pronounce-Gewurtzraminer, etc.” Easy going with an “it’s ok to laugh out loud” vibe, the Wine Bar & Bistro is the perfect place to entertain or hang out for an evening.
The Aqua Terrace is our outside hot pool area in Spa Mirbeau and provides a full bar with a light fare menu throughout the day. You can make the Aqua Terrace part of your fitness and sauna regime as well as a location to meet friends and enjoy our extensive wine list and specialty cocktails, while soaking in the bubbling hot massage pool or lounging in front of the large, outdoor hearth fireplace.
Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F. Heat the olive oil in a large Dutch oven. Add the bacon and cook over medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes, until lightly browned. Remove the bacon to a plate with a slotted spoon. Meanwhile, lay the chicken out on paper towels and pat dry. Liberally sprinkle the chicken on both sides with salt and pepper. When the bacon is removed, brown the chicken pieces in batches in a single layer for about 5 minutes, turning to brown evenly. Remove the chicken to the plate with the bacon and continue to brown until all the chicken is done. Set aside. Add the carrots, onions, 2 teaspoons salt, and 1 teaspoon pepper to the pan and cook over medium heat for 10 to 12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the onions are lightly browned. Add the garlic and cook for 1 more minute. Add the brandy and put the bacon, chicken, and any juices that collected on the plate into the pot. Add the wine, chicken stock, and thyme and bring to a simmer. Cover the pot with a tight fitting lid and place in the oven for 30 to 40 minutes, until the chicken is just not pink. Remove from the oven and place on top of the stove. Mash 1 tablespoon of butter and the flour together and stir into the stew. Add the pearl onions. In a medium saute pan, add the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter and cook the mushrooms over medium-low heat for 5 to 10 minutes, until browned. Add to the stew. Bring the stew to a simmer and cook for another 10 minutes. Season to taste.
