The Avenue will offer guests mouthwatering appetizers, soups, salads, sandwiches, seafood, and steaks. Executive Chef Jeff Lindemeyer, along with the CMR culinary development team, has created a dinner menu with signature dishes that include: Veal Milanese; Steak Frites; Sautéed Branzino; Twin Lobster Tails; Filet Mignon; New York Strip; Prime Top Sirloin; Colorado Lamb Chops.
A carefully selected collection of Old and New World Wines will be featured at The Avenue, as well as classically inspired cocktails, including:Sloe Tom Collins (Plymouth Dry and Sloe gin, fresh raspberries, lemon, and soda); Planter’s Punch (Ron Zacapa, fresh pineapple, citrus, and house-made grenadine); Old Fashioned (George Dickle Rye, sugar, orange, and old fashion bitters); Staten Island Ferry (Coconut-infused Mt. Gay rum, fresh pineapple, and Snowville Creamery crème fraiche); Manhattan (Watershed bourbon, Dolin Rouge Vermouth, Nocino, and orange bitters).
The Avenue encompasses a 4,830-square foot space and will accommodate 100 guests in the dining room, 35 in the bar area, and 24 on the patio. The Avenue also features a semi-private dining area with seating for up to six people. Although not open for lunch, the dining area is available for reserved luncheons for up to 100 guests between 11:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. at The Avenue.
