The Golden Lamb Inn is the oldest hotel in Ohio. It owes its early success due to location – halfway between Cincinnati and the National Road (now U.S. Route 40). The Golden Lamb has hosted a number of historical figures, including 12 United States Presidents (from as far back as John Quincy Adams to as recent as George W. Bush), and today is still serving excellent cuisine to guests from all over the country.
This month, the historical dinner series continues with a night dedicated to Clement Vallandigham, a rabble-rousing, controversial Copperhead politician from Ohio who served during the American civil war.
Dinner with History: Clement Vallandigham will begin at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 28. The evening includes a three-course menu from the Golden Lamb culinary team, as well as a talk from Golden Lamb Historian John Zimkus, who will tell the tale of Vallandigham’s colorful life, and the Golden Lamb’s connection to his bizarre and untimely death. The menu for the evening includes:
- Starter: Burrata and local tomato salad with cucumber, white balsamic vinaigrette, grilled extra-virgin olive oil scented baguette
- Entrée course: Certified Angus Beef New York strip steak and seared scallop with goat cheese pesto mashed potatoes, local summer succotash, cabernet reduction
- Decadence: Strawberry shortcake with pickled strawberries, vanilla whipped cream
Reservations are required and can be made by calling Golden Lamb at (513) 932-5065. Reservations are $45 per person all inclusive.
