DEAL: 1 bottle of wine and 2 three course meals for $50 at the Cotswold Café at Edsel & Eleanor Ford House - Grosse Pointe Shores

Ford House Cotswold Café Reopens for Dinner April 29 with a great dinner deal

Step into spring in a tasty way with a visit to the Cotswold Café at Edsel & Eleanor Ford House (Ford House).  Beginning tomorrow, April 29, the Cotswold Café reopens for dinner with a variety of mouthwatering dishes added to the menu, in addition to Café favorites.

The Café’s new menu offers a wide-range of internationally-inspired cuisine, including Acapulco Shrimp Salad, Pizza Margherita and Chicken Wellington. However, frequent diners can be assured that long-time favorites like the Classic Maurice Salad and Quiche du Jour are staying put.  Guests can also expect to see a few new beers and wines on the menu as well, including Lagunitas IPA and Sebastiani pinot noir.

Another special surprise this season: Dinner for Two.  For only $50, two guests can enjoy one bottle of wine and two three course meals chosen from a select menu.  To add some variety, the Dinner for Two menu will change weekly.

”The Ford family enjoyed fine dining, and a good meal was at the center of many family celebrations,” said Chef Erik Ziegenbein. “We try to pass along that passion for great food to our guests, and our new Dinner for Two special is a perfect reason to try something new in an elegant setting.”

A visit to the Cotswold Café is a highlight of the Ford House experience. The Café embodies an ambience inside and out that was inspired by Eleanor Ford’s love of England and cottage-style gardens. Weather permitting, there is seating outside on the Café terrace.  Diners in the Café are invited to stroll the lakefront grounds free of charge following their meal.
