As the newest addition to the special-event destination The Castle, Joia de Portugal introduces patrons to a staggering 10-page menu of Portuguese cuisine. Those interested in traditional preparations can look out for chef favorites such as the chourico assado (a roasted sausage flambe), or carne de porco alentejana, a Portuguese specialty with pork cubes, clams, and fried potatoes. More familiar dishes include New Zealand rack of lamb and filet mignon, both of which are served with saffron rice and Spanish potatoes. Western European influences are prevalent on the dessert menu as well, as guests can choose from tiramisu, flan, and a passion-fruit creme brulee that packs as much energy as the man who outran a Eurail train.
Casa di Trevi is a family-owned and operated manufacturer of homemade ravioli, fresh pasta, sauces and other Italian specialties. All of our products are made fresh using only the finest ingredients. They are 100% natural, free of preservatives, artificial colorings, and thickeners. Come taste the freshness for yourself!
Large pots regularly crowd the burners in Vinhus Restaurant & Lounge’s kitchen. A peek into the cauldrons reveals bubbling mixtures of seafood suggestive of what might happen if chefs strolled through a fish market and scooped up a few things from every stand—one combinations in particular pairs lobster, clams, and shrimp with a choice of green or red sauce.
These seafood surfeits belong to a menu inspired by Portugal’s seafaring traditions, complete with dishes such as grilled cod with skinned potato chunks, roasted peppers, and onions. The menu reaches east, as well, pulling flavors from Spain, France, Italy, and the Mediterranean into dishes such as veal marsala or a seafood plate whose lobster comes accented with chorizo, chicken, and saffron rice.
The fresh seafood and sizzling steaks perfume a dining room whose wooden floors and taupe-colored walls set the stage for decor including neatly arranged lighting fixtures, attractive artwork, and verdant foliage. Before or after meals, guests can retreat to the lounge, where patrons sip spirited beverages beneath a slanted ceiling that offers its protection to the room’s roaring fireplace.
