EG Eats: 2 From County Seat Restaurant & Lounge

by | Aug 23, 2022

As we near the EG News celebration of five-years as a 501(c)3 non-profit, independent news organization (our birthday party), we have reached out to many local restaurants and businesses for support in our fundraising event. One that enthusiastically jumped in to participate was the very newly-opened The County Seat Restaurant & Lounge on 50 Main Street, and we’re thrilled for more EG foodies to be able to see what they’re serving up. Reader reviews have recently come in, raving about their white pizza and scallops and wondering if we had shared anything about this new Main Street restaurant with excellent service and a great vibe. While we wrote of their opening back in June (HERE), here’s a chance to easily recreate two of their delicious menu items while at home — and enjoy the second while in attendance at our event in September:

Salmon Poke Lettuce Wraps

(Gluten Free)

To make three wraps (one serving):

  • 6 oz sushi-grade salmon
  • 3 oz of all other ingredients: honey, gluten-free soy sauce, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, sambal oelek (an Indonesian chile paste), minced garlic, scallions, red onion, red wine vinegar, and generous pinches of:sugar, salt, ground black pepper
  • For garnishes: diced avocado, oranges, scallions, black and white sesame seeds.
1. Dice the salmon in small cubes and marinate in the soy-sesame vinaigrette for a few hours.
2. While that marinates, make the vinaigrette: Mix honey, gluten-free soy sauce, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, sambal oelek, minced garlic, and scallions to taste. Save any extra in the fridge for future recipes.
3. Next, prepare pickled red onion: combine thinly sliced red onion, red wine vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper and let simmer on the stovetop for 10 minutes. Chill in fridge for at least 30 minutes.
4. Assemble according to the picture above, using romaine hearts as the base. Add marinated salmon, orange, avocado, cucumber, which were finely diced, and pickled red onion. Top with black and white sesame seeds.

Housemade Bratwurst Crostini

  • 1 French bread baguette, lightly toasted (for crostini points)
  • Thinly sliced bratwurst
  • Thinly sliced cheddar cheese
  • Pickle slices
  • For garnishes: whole grain mustard and pickled onion (see above for recipe)
  1. For this one, you’ll have to pick up a favorite bratwurst from your favorite local grocer as County Seat makes theirs in-house.
  2. Starting with the lightly toasted crostini toasts, add a thin slice of cheddar cheese then top with a diagonally-sliced bratwurst to cover the crostini.
  3. Layer with a pickle slices and a small dollop of whole grain mustard, then garnish with pickled onion.
  4. Enjoy!

This restaurant has phenomenal service! Very different feel from the previous restaurant that was here and completely renovated on the inside. Our family loves it

It’s funny because these are the exact same dishes I ordered when i went there last week. I am loving this new restaurant. Food is delicious; drinks are creative and strong; atmosphere is wonderful (big improvement) and service is so friendly and attentive. Glad to have this place on Main Street!
