All aspects of The Peacock's Pantry display a marriage of familiarity and refinement. The menu presents comforting American and European classics with contemporary, gourmet twists, such as honey-lime-glazed chicken, panko-crusted crab cakes, and bacon-wrapped petite beef filet mignon. The small-plate selection allows diners to enhance meals with the excitement of a game of hot potato, and the dessert selection includes specialties such as Kahlua chocolate mousse and maple-and-pecan-baked brie.
