When Bentley’s Executive Chef Hans Afshar gave our menu a fresh new makeover earlier this year, diners took notice. The new menu features seasonal Northwest ingredients along with fresh seafood, choice steaks, decadent pasta dishes and more – each plated in an artistic presentation to appeal to all the senses.
When we asked Chef Hans what appetizers and entrees are in the highest demand, he told us it’s difficult to choose since he changes Bentley’s menu based on what’s fresh and in season. If you are a first-time diner at Bentley’s and you’re wondering what to order, Chef advises trying one of the daily specials or fish of the day. Diners also frequently rave about our steaks and wild game; and if short rib and bison are on the menu that day, you better act fast because they almost always sell out quickly.
If you’re ordering for the first time from our new dinner menu, Chef recommends trying the
Northwest Salmon dish with cranberry confit, beurre blanc sauce, vegetables, wild rice. Seared Scallops served with mashed potatoes, saffron pineapple sauce, vegetables are also in high demand.
Two other “Must-Try” dishes at Bentley’s is our mouthwatering Buccattini Carbonara with prosciutto, pancetta, salami, pepperoni, fresh garlic, olive oil, onions, parmesan, egg and our Burnt End Mac & Cheese with bbq, fontina & smoked cheddar, bacon crumble and cream.
The meat dishes are Bentley’s are also great choices. Diners often say they are tender, flavorful and cooked to perfection.
Here are some recommendations from some of our recent guests:
