The Goldmoor Inn Restaurant

Well the past two weeks have been totally nuts for us as we’ve been on the road a bunch, but we are back home and ready to show you guys a few things we’ve been working on!

A few weeks ago we had the opportunity to photograph the food at The Goldmoor Inn Restaurant in Galena.  They recently hired a new chef who has spent his first several months there revamping the menu and incorporating some new ideas for the food.  What he has created is a menu full of DELICIOUS food!!!!  Everything he makes is organic and ridiculously yummy!  The next time you’re in town, you really want to make it a point to head here for dinner!!!

To start, we photographed some of their breakfast offerings.  For guests that stay at Goldmoor the breakfast is a fantastic perk to your stay!  I LOVE how we happened to get the steam coming off of the Eggs Benedict and omelet on these first shots!!!!

The appetizer choices are a perfect start to what is bound to be an incredible meal when you dine here.  First, let’s talk about this BACON!!!  Thick cut bacon drenched in pure maple syrup that melts in your mouth when you eat it!

Then we move on to dinner!!!  First we want to introduce you to the man behind all of this deliciousness!  Chef Carlos is incredible and he was so much fun to work with during the two days we spent doing this project.

These dinner options he has created are like nothing you’ll find at other restaurants around here.  Each is crafted with the utmost care and attention to detail.

One really neat feature of The Goldmoor is that there is actually a table inside the kitchen where you can sit and eat while you watch everything going on in the kitchen.

And of course you can’t forget dessert!  The bread pudding is made fresh every day along with a fresh white chocolate sauce.  The martini glass is filled with chocolate truffles and is something you can have waiting for you in your room when you arrive for your stay.  Cool right?!?!?
