Nectar Restaurant and Wine Bar
Every six months, according to The Coast magazine, Chef Stefan Bruchmann begins updating his menu at Nectar Restaurant and Wine Bar. Those seasonal changes have been met with consistent acclaim, including The Coast's honor of "Best Dartmouth Restaurant" five years running. The ever-evolving menu has been known to spotlight mains such as crispy arctic char with a crusted potato cake, wilted spinach, vine roasted tomatoes and honey mustard vinaigrette and a chicken breast stuffed with prosciutto, havarti, and oyster mushrooms served with a red pepper jam. Chef Stefan combines the secrets and techniques that he garnered from his culinary experiences in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Ireland.
Nectar's bartenders match that creativity with a slate of inventive martinis—which includes the garlic-tinged Janes' Bond and the mandarin-kissed Southern Peach—and an extensive wine list. High-backed, white chairs juxtapose the dining room's black floors and tables, creating a striking tableau accented with damask-patterned wallpaper and bright chandeliers. Tucked in the back and upstairs, the patio awaits guests who wish to dine outdoors. Amid this upscale ambiance, the staff hosts themed occasions such as bring-your-own-wine Tuesdays and vegan Wednesdays. On Sundays, Nectar presents live performances from local musicians Daniel Matto, Nadia Moore, and Georges Hebert, who enliven the air with a blend of jazz standards.
