We have spent part or all of our thirty-some-odd summers in Harbor Springs, and for whatever reason never had (or took) the opportunity to dine at Esperance. We are very grateful to summer neighbors of ours who took us to Esperance a few nights ago. From the moment we walked in and were warmly greater by the owner, Pram, and expertly served by one of his sons, and then finished a most delicious meal prepared by Pram's wife, Suzanne, we were more than impressed. This is first-rate food (French inspired), extremely fresh (much of it locally grown, raised, or fished), and presented beautifully in an understated yet elegant way. Their wine cellar is on par with the food, and has something terrific by the glass or for the most specific of oenophiles. Do not miss this opportunity. Esperance is on the top of our list and we highly recommend the experience.
