Side Dishes: Clover House Restaurant moves

Clover House, Colchester’s destination for well-prepared pub fare and upscale specials, will close its doors after its December 31 New Year’s celebration. In January, owner Doug Simms and chef Levi Carter will open the Lighthouse Restaurant in the Colchester Hampton Inn space previously occupied by T Bone’s Restaurant & Bar.

Carter says Clover House has outgrown its 60-seat home. The Lighthouse will seat 220 in its space, which includes a lounge and outdoor deck. The new restaurant, says Carter, will focus more on affordable fine dining than on the pub fare of his current digs. The menu will include a “build-your-own” option: Diners choose a protein, such as prime steak or seafood, then complement it with a starch, a seasonal vegetable and a sauce such as port demi-glace or béarnaise.

A 60-item salad bar will be “consistent and fresh,” Carter says. Before long, he plans to introduce a large specials menu similar to the one he fills with unusual duck, lamb and seafood dishes at Clover House.
