Early in May, in preparation for fully reopening for IRCC members only, Executive Chef Weiland and At Ease Club Manager, Thomas Shonkwiler have recently introduced a delicious new menu to our members for Lunch, Dinner, and Take Out. Options include some delectable delights like Crispy Duck Breast, Bourbon-Peach Glazed Scallops, Filet Mignon, among many others!
