Malabar Farm Restaurant

Malabar Farm Restaurant
3645 Pleasant Valley Road
Perrysville,OH 44864

It was Bromfield's dream to someday open a restaurant and hire a french chef. During Bromfield's seventeen years in France he enjoyed the French countryside and it's fabulous foods. This is a quote from the menu at the Malabar Farm Restaurant and let me tell you, Bromfield's dream has been achieved. I enjoyed a fabulous lunch at the restaurant yesterday in the company of my aunts and cousin.

As many of you know, I love to cook and have a special affection for French food so the Malabar Farm Restaurant has been on my list of places to try. I hadn't been to the "Inn", as it was formerly known, for many years. The food was ok but not great, at that time. Word had reached me that the restaurant had a new chef and how terrific the food is.

The menu is diverse yet still retains it's French flair. I enjoyed the East Coast Crab Cakes with a South Pacific Cole Slaw from the appetizer menu ($8.25). The meal was delicious and I am picky about my crab cakes. Others in our party had the Chicken Pot Pie with a puff pastry top ($7.95) and the Blackened Salmon served with a golden saffron sauce ($16.95). They also had a classic French cassoulet as one of the specials. I will be back to try it another day. They have sandwiches and salads or if you prefer a full and proper meal, they also have some "higher end" meals but without a huge price tag.

Want to enjoy a great view of Pleasant Valley? You can enjoy your meal out on the deck at an umbrella table. The decor has been updated since I was last there and they have done a great job of giving you the feeling of an old inn but with some modern touches. Our server was also fabulous. She was knowledgable about the menu and made sure that we had everything that we needed.

If you want to enjoy a great meal in a great atmosphere, you must try this restaurant. It is now at the top of my list and I will be returning often.
