We visited the Sand Spring for dinner and enjoyed the meal thoroughly. The restaurant had a nice selection of "upgraded wines" by the glass, which was a wonderful surprise, as finishing a whole bottle was not the works given the windy road we would be taking back to our hotel. We sampled the wedge salad, the foie gras, the papardelle app and eggplant parm. All were excellent, and the homemade pasta was a real treat. Desserts were also tasty. One comment on pricing - the $26 price tag on the eggplant parma seemed a bit excessive while other prices were more in line with the tourist area. Our waiter was very pleasant and accommodating. It was rather odd that the owner visited every other table but ours to exchange pleasantries and ask about the food...he clearly knew the other guests from previous encounters. You would think he might want to welcome some first timers to his restaurant, but alas he did not.
