The restaurant Heirloom located in The Study at Yale offers food and lodging in keeping with its location on the same city block as the Yale School of Architecture.
Enjoy quirky details like this eyeglasses sculpture.
The dining room is modern yet comfortable
and there’s plenty of evidence that Heirloom has a penchant for wines.
Our wines pleased the white
and red wine drinkers among us alike.
came with a trio of options—olive oil, butter or a horseradish cream.
A parade of treats was to follow, not all of which were on the menu,
including fried okra with a spicy dipping sauce,
an iceberg wedge salad,
an heirloom and farm tomato caprese salad,
baked warm local ricotta
and chicken liver pâté with bacon jam, sea salt and toast.
Our entrées included sea scallops with spaghetti squash,
roast Bobo Farms chicken,
and a charred New York strip steak frîtes.
Shared sides included “charred broccoli”
and “gunpowder mushrooms.”
We ordered coffees
in anticipation of dessert.
A dessert sampler
delivered unexpected pleasures,
including a blueberry coffee cake
Key lime panna cotta,
chocolate chip cookies,
And at the end of this tremendous meal, we got to meet talented chef Carey Savona.
