Shirley opted for the Peeky Toe Crab salad, and the Striped Bass, while I went for Ricotta Gnocchi w/ramps & morels (came with some nice fiddleheads as well) and the Lobster.

All proceeded with tastings and after dessert treats.
Finished with

Gale's Homemade Root Beer Float ... one of Shirley's favorite treats.
