TEMECULA – Now with being voted Best Restaurant for 10 years in a row from readers of Inland Empire Magazine and the Diner’s Choice Award for 2016 from Open Table diners, the hilltop Pinnacle Restaurant at Falkner Winery announces that they will once again be offering their very popular Easter Champagne Brunch instead of their normal menu for the upcoming holiday.
This year the menu will include many Mediterranean style food offerings since recent health studies have shown the dietary benefits that Mediterranean food offers. The brunch will consist of multiple food stations and be available for reservations from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. All food will be prepared by our Executive Chef Jason Barradas and his excellent staff. As the name implies, Champagne will be part of the meal along with other beverage options including discounted wine by the glass. Live entertainment will also be provided. Special Easter gifts will be given to all children upon arrival.
The Brunch will include items such as fresh seafood including cocktail shrimp, crab claws and smoked salmon; a carving station featuring prime rib of beef with Falkner Amante Au Jus and creamy horseradish all sliced to order; an omelet/egg station for made-to-order selections; blueberry or chocolate pancakes with maple syrup, berry compote, whipped cream and powdered sugar; breakfast sausage and bacon and an assorted selection of fresh sliced fruits with honey cinnamon yogurt sauce.
Also on the menu will be oven baked salmon with lemon caper cream; seared pork tenderloin with sriracha mango salsa; roasted chicken with a tomato sauce topped with fresh basil and feta cheese; a chef’s selection of assorted vegetables; oven roasted Yukon Gold potatoes; salads with various lettuces, tomatoes, mushrooms, garlic croutons, parmesan, and balsamic and Riesling dressings; assorted imported and domestic cheese display with dried fruit and nuts and assorted breads, bagels, muffins and Danish pastries.
Don’t miss the dessert station featuring a “create your own” ice cream sundae station with vanilla bean and chocolate ice creams, pineapple and strawberry toppings, chocolate fudge sauce, whipped cream, peanuts and sliced bananas; assorted delectable cakes, pastries, cookies and tarts and special children items including chicken tenders and penne pasta.
