— A newly-remodeled Dayton restaurant has just “remodeled” its menu.
Dewberry 1850 Restaurant and Lounge inside the Dayton Marriott at the University of Dayton’s new menu features innovative but approachable cuisine.
“We are just pushing the envelope a little bit more, trying to get people to try something different,” Devin Duncan, the hotel’s director of food and beverage, said of the food served at 1414 South Patterson Blvd. in Dayton.
There are only three holdovers from Dewberry’s last lunch and dinner menus: the Brown Street Club, the burger and the P.L.T.E — McDowell farm pork belly with mayo, romaine, tomato jam and a TS farm sunny-side-up egg on a brioche bun, served open-faced.
The restaurant is offering a made-to-order, fresh bread service for $2.
Duncan said he was particularly excited about the bialys created under executive chef Tim Skiber.
The bagel-like treats are made with Parmesan dough, caramelized onion, Kalamata olive, caper-stewed tomato and olive oil.
“When I tasted that, it kind of blew my mind,” he said.
Below is a look at the rest of the dinner. Note: most small plates, shareables and sandwiches are also on the restaurant’s lunch menu.
