We only get to visit this area once a year. That is probably a good thing or I would have to take a position at the Refectory to support my enjoyment of the food here. The food, ambience, wait staff and bar is always the highlight of my summer travels. We started our visit out at the bar to take advantage of the happy hour cocktail/appetizer pricing. The bartender's version of a Moscow Mule made with Maker's Mark is my new favorite cocktail. Caesar salad,very good (it has anchovies reclining on top..not hubby's favorite way. He'd prefer to have them chopped minutely..oh well). Prawn Tempura app was delicious. Escargot Terrine probably will not be ordered again. But now I know I don't like fatty dishes served a room temperature). The bread is some of the best as well. Some sort of a whole grain. At his point we were so comfortable in our bar chairs we chose to order entrees there in stead of moving to the dining room. Hubby thoroughly enjoyed the Roasted Duck Breast and my Norwegian salmon chop was cooked perfectly. They came with a few lobster ravioli and a dollop of fresh crabmeat on top. If anything could be disappointing it would be the flourless chocolate torte. Quite dry and crumbly. But a small scoop of pistachio ice cream filled the bill. We are so looking forward to our next visit in 2015.
