The dueling glove was originally an invention of chefs who would slap waterfowls with oven mitts and demand electric knives at dawn. Taste the edible creations of culinary innovators with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of upscale American fare and drinks at The Beaumont Restaurant, located in The Audubon Inn in Mayville.
The Beaumont Restaurant boasts an elegant and family-friendly environment to enjoy a menu of modest gourmet dishes. Indulge taste buds in an artful appetizer of crispy risotto bites infused with Wisconsin brie cheese ($7.95) or a leafy honey rosemary steak salad decorated with honey-rosemary-marinated steak, herb croutons, balsamic tomato onion relish, and a dairy dusting of parmesan and blue cheeses ($10.95). Diners seeking fully formed entrees enjoy the 14-ounce rib-eye pepper steak cloaked in pulverized peppercorns and garlic ($19.95), while Zeppelin-driving patrons avoid heavy belly ballast with lighter options such as the whiskey salmon, a grilled North Atlantic filet topped with a whiskey cream sauce ($14.95). Gourmands unaccustomed to proper knife and fork etiquette skirt silverware with Beaumont's sandwich selection ranging from a Wisconsin grilled chicken breast sandwich ($6.95) to the Beaumont BBQ burger, a half-pound patty buried under an avalanche of barbecue sauce, tomato, onion straws, and melted cheddar cheese ($8.95).
Located in The Audubon Inn, a National Historic Landmark built in 1896, Beaumont keeps locals and guests jiving in a cozy dining room decorated with stained-glass windows and Audubon prints depicting the state's avian citizens. Coat tongues with a sweet libation from the full bar, which boasts the area's widest selection of liquor, wine, and beer served under an etched stained-glass skylight depicting the annual migration of Canadian geese to visit their great aunt in Nebraska. All dinner courses are served from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday–Saturday.
