Enjoy a three-course prix fixe Easter Dinner at The Century House, a landmark destination in Latham. The menu offers a little bit of everything from more traditional menu options such as a roasted ham or roasted chicken, to more unique offerings including lobster mac and cheese or eggplant Napoleon. Reservations are required for the 3-course meal. 

Looking to dine at home? Pre-order a complete Easter meal to-go. Order a half or whole bone-in ham, half or whole prime rib, short ribs for two or peachy pork tenderloin for two complete with rosemary roasted potatoes, garlic butter green beans, spring salad, rolls and butter and a strawberry cake.
