Au- thentic. Perfect for Mom," that will feature a prix fixe menu of special- ly-crafted dishes. The regular menu will not be available. This year's selections have not yet been finalized, but last year's appe- tizers and entrees (pick one of each from the menu) included barbequed duck quesadilla, macadamia nut tempura calamari, Hudson Valley french Pekin duck with orange apri- cot sauce and gnocchi al caprese. Dinner is $45 per person, exclu- sive of beverages, dessert tax and gratuity. Children 12 and under may choose to order off of Terrapin's kids menu.
