Our menu at Chapter One has something for everyone. Whether you’re looking for a meat dish or a fresh seafood catch, you’ll find something for every palate. If you’re unsure which dish pairs best with your favorite wine, we have some suggestions to help you along the way. We hope you’re hungry!
Best Pairings with a Glass of White Wine
Typically, shellfish, poultry, fish, and salads pair best with a glass of white wine. Enjoy a glass of Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, or Riesling from our wine list.
If you’re a salad lover, our Caprese Salad is an excellent choice to go with your favorite glass of white wine. It is made with vine-ripened tomato and fresh mozzarella drizzled with balsamic glaze & EVOO. Finished with fresh basil over a bed of arugula, the Caprese Salad is a must!
For the seafood lover, there’s the Yellowfin Tuna. This sesame seed-crusted sushi-grade tuna is seared rare. It’s served with house rice and stir-fried vegetables and finished with sweet soy and wasabi sauce.
Don’t forget the Lemon Chicken Piccata! Our butterflied chicken breast, lemon, capers, garlic, and shallots are tossed in white wine butter and served over linguine. These flavors make for the perfect meal for National Drink Wine Day!
Best Pairings with a Glass of Red Wine
If you prefer a glass of red wine, you’ll want to opt for a meat or pasta dish since those often go best with your favorite red wine. At Chapter One, we offer Cabernet, Pinot Noir, and more.
At Chapter One, we serve a prime filet mignon that is char-grilled to perfection. It comes with garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus to make for a tasty meal you’ll love.
There is also the Chapter One Bolognese. Stewed veal, sausage, crumbled house-made meatballs are slow simmered in a port wine tomato sauce and tossed with cavatappi pasta, and finished with parmesan cheese. We promise, this dish does not disappoint!
If you love a fish dish in a red sauce, try our Zuppa Di Pesce. It combines fresh local clams, mussels, lobster tail, shrimp, and the day’s catch in a zesty red wine marinara sauce. It’s served with garlic bread; you can also add linguini. You can definitely raise a glass to this dish and the best food in Mystic at Chapter One!
Best Pairing with a Glass of Rose
If you love a good glass of rose, you’ll want to pair it with cheeses and cured meats, as well as salmon. All of these make for a great meal on National Drink Wine Day or any other day of the year.
For starters, the Devils on Horseback is a great choice. This appetizer dish includes Medjool dates filled with gorgonzola cheese, wrapped in smoked bacon, and drizzled with balsamic reduction. This is an appetizer you won’t want to share!
For the fish lover, our Wild Norwegian Salmon is also a favorite. Raise a glass of rose to pan-seared, grilled, or blackened salmon, served with rice pilaf and vegetable of the day, topped with our house-made Pico de Gallo. All of our fish is caught fresh and served to perfection.
We also have a vegan paella you’ll want to try. Enjoy roasted cauliflower, edamame, sun-dried tomatoes, asparagus, and sauteed spinach tossed with house-made risotto. You can count on us to use the best ingredients and freshest vegetables in all of our dishes. This is an excellent choice if you follow a vegan diet and love a good glass of rose.
These are just a few of the many menu choices you’ll want to try whether you’re stopping by Chapter One for lunch or dinner!
