Rumbling stomachs lure food to gullets by singing siren songs, power ballads, and edited renditions of Hungry Like the Wolf. Quell distracting melodies with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of contemporary fusion dinner fare at Siver Hills Restaurant & Banquet House. The restaurant is located at the Pinehaven Country Club in Guilderland.
For almost 40 years, family-owned Siver Hills has produced superior food amid the scenic fairways of Pinehaven Country Club. The dinner menu trots around the globe collecting piquant preparations including a selection of soups, salads, sushi, and hearty entrees listed with their proper wine pairings. Appetizers such as the imported prosciutto-wrapped butternut squash bask in the Mediterranean sun ($7) and the spicy lobster-tempura sushi roll practices sumo with truculent taste buds ($13).
Cavernous carnivorous cravings can sink canines into the smoked New York–strip steak, served with a swirl of whipped lemon-garlic butter and earthy caramelized leeks, all on a rich carpet of brandied mushrooms and rosemary risotto ($22). Eggplant parmigiana swirls eggplants in a crunchy batter topped with silky-smooth mozzarella and pomodoro sauce over loops of linguine ($15). Embrace the warm side of the color wheel with the lamb-shank biryani with tender cuts of lamb in a savory saffron-biryani-sauce reduction, over a sunset of ochre acorn squash stuffed with red quinoa and vegetables ($24). Delectable desserts include tempura-fried cannolis ($5) and a walnut s'mores brownie ($6) that can be safely consumed without the pokey stick or the open flame.
