REVAMPED CAFÉ CARLETON BRINGS MEDITERRANEAN SOPHISTICATION TO WEST VIRGINIA


The Greenbrier unveils new small plates menu and expanded hours at Café Carleton


White Sulphur Springs, WV - April 16, 2014: Café Carleton, the red velvet jewel box adjacent to the entrance to the Casino at The Greenbrier, has unveiled a whole new persona. No longer a simple stop for coffee and biscotti, Café Carleton has been transformed into an elegant Tapas and Wine Bar with expanded hours.

"Tapas bars began in Spain and are now all the rage in New York, Chicago, Miami and California," says Jeff Kmiec, President of The Greenbrier, "and we decided it was time to introduce the trend to our already robust restaurant collection at The Greenbrier." Tapas are small dishes traditional in Spain, ideal for snacking or light meals. "Generally," Kmiec continued, "diners order three or four different plates to share, while sampling an array of fine wines."

Café Carleton's Tapas menu includes a variety of moderately priced plates, such as chilled shrimp with avocado ($9), duck egg with truffles ($10), chicken liver pate with smoked quail ($7), white anchovies on toast ($7) and a large assortment of Spanish cheeses sausages and hams. A five-dish tasting assortment is $32.

More than 50 wines are available by the glass or bottle, as well as sparkling wines, a variety of sherries, cocktails and imported and local beers. Café Carleton is open daily from 11:30am to 9pm.
