Avalon Summer Menu Highlights and July's Cheese Selections

This is one of best times of the year to create a new menu and Chef David Kiser’s new summer menu will not disappoint. Offering an array of creative and inspired dishes, incorporating the region’s best seasonal produce including herbs, fruits, other produce and cheeses from local farms in the West Chester Area.

Avalon’s newest addition, a “Hand Carved Cheese & Charcuterie Table” now carries nine cheeses from smaller seasonal production farms and five cured meats both local and imported. Stop in this month and enjoy a cured meat and mixed cheese plate, our three course menu starting at $25 and a complimentary carafe of wine (available Sunday thru Thursday) all while sitting on our serene private outdoor courtyard!
