Whitfield's


To walk in a restaurant greeted by a warm smile from the hostess, a cheerful banter from the servers and a loving hug by the owner is just a part of what gives locally owned Whitfield's its charm and inviting atmosphere.  The cuisine is unique yet traditional, the service is impeccable without being pretentious and the atmosphere is elegantly comfortable.  I find that the restaurants I love, the ones I want to go to time and time again, are those that are quaint, locally-owned, cozy neighborhood haunts.  This is what you will find when you walk through the door at Whitfield's.  Sit down, relax over a cocktail and just enjoy your meal because regardless of what you are looking for, a quiet meal in the corner, a warm spring night on the patio, dinner at the piano, or the liveliness of the bar, you will find it here, while supporting our local businesses.  Here are some of the dishes we enjoyed during my most recent visit to this fine establishment...

Most of the time I can pass on bread at restaurants as I tend to get full quickly and don't want to spoil my dinner on bread.  This is not a possibility when this combination is placed in front of me...I simply cannot pass on the bread here.  As I have found in life, it is the butter that makes it!  It is a sun dried tomato butter served  with warm bread....incredible!
Asian Spinach Salad
Spinach, orange slices, avocado, crispy wontons, miso-ginger dressing and wasabi peas

 
Caesar Salad
I cannot go to Whitfield's without getting the Caesar salad...the homemade dressing with the thick slices of Parmesan cheese is absolutely to die for!!

Pan Seared Halibut
Mango coconut sushi rice, sesame bok choy and a miso beurre banc

Buttermilk Fried Oysters
Lightly battered with house bacon, roasted pineapple and corn salsa 
topped with honey habanero aioli...Mom's favorite.

Painted Hills Tri Tip
Grilled tri-tip steak, blue cheese polenta fries, brussels sprouts hash, caramelized pearl onions, grain mustard demi

Don't forget to tip your server!!!
