Sort of a Tradition

The Mad Hatter

We try to take at least one meal here when we stay for more than a few days.
It had been a rainy day, mostly overcast by sunset so we missed out on that feature.

While our son-in-law tried the evening special : bouillabaisse, daughter went for the duck (Pan seared Maple Leaf duck breast, sliced and topped with a mixed berry sauce, Yukon mashed potatoes & grilled asparagus), and Shirley ordered up the Filet (Grilled Buckhead filet mignon with fresh Béarnaise sauce served with yukon mashed potatoes & grilled asparagus), I stuck to seafood : Black Truffle Sea Scallops (Pan seared panko & black truffle encrusted dayboat sea scallops finished with a caramelized shallot beurre blanc served atop whipped Yukon potatoes & julienned zucchini & squash)

All were appreciated
I barely noticed the black truffle, but the scallops were just right, tender, just barely cooked.

We all shared the
Chocolate Truffle Terrine (Flourless chocolate pate with bittersweet chocolate & casis, garnished with crème anglaise, melba sauce, fresh whipped cream & berries)

New ownership a couple of years ago, same tradition of great food.
We'll visit it again before we leave, try some different dishes.
