outside shot of the Inn
happy to have a date night
our view of the prettily-lit outside courtyard
I didn't take a picture of our first few courses, but to start I had a beautiful beet salad, complete with a beet sorbet. Richard had a lamb caesar salad with caesar salad ice cream. The chef also sent out a pork belly appetizer, a shot of the best soup I've ever had- a rutabaga and apple concoction, and his version of chips and dip, with a bit of caviar. Our second courses were a mac and cheese with virginia country ham and foie gras. Richard's main course was a deconstructed beef stew with tenderloin and bone marrow, and mine was a seared tuna. Delicious.
Then came dessert...Richard ordered the Seven Deadly Sins, a sampling of the Inn's favorite sweet treats. And he didn't share one bit.
a whole lot of goodness
That was ok, since I had my own butter pecan ice cream sandwich with chocolate and caramel to contend with.
loved the happy birthday sign!
one of the more creative things I've seen- a "doggy bag" in the shape of the inn filled with miniature treats
enjoying the warm fireplace
one last parting shot...hopefully one day we can come back to stay!
