I've passed The Colonial a hundred times over the past couple of years, I'm certain, and I've mentioned on several occasions that I'd like to eat there "just because." Well, on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, after strolling through the antiques shops, I found myself ready for a lunch and ready to give The Liberty at the Colonial a shot. Our party of two was promptly greeted and seated at a wonderful table outside, just as we requested. So far, so good. Service was efficient, yet not rushed. I opted for the soup, salad, sandwich combo and my companion ordered a chicken Caesar salad. I'm told the salad was crisp, the dressing was perfect (although a little more would have been appreciated), and the chicken was seared just enough to be flavorful, yet moist. Instead of the soup of the day, which was a Southwestern chili type, I upgraded to clam chowder. It was absolutely worth the extra $. Lots of big chunks of clam, not loaded with potato, and just a nice rich cream. The salad was nice, and my warm half roast beef wrap was served rare, and very, very tender. But the star of this luncheon outing was most definitely DESSERT! We didn't go in planning to order dessert, but I always ask for a menu just to "dream." When we saw they were offering up a mixed berry bread pudding, our curiosity was piqued enough to give it a try. Of course, we had to order a second offering, so we chose the tropical creme brûlée. The bread pudding was absolutely excellent. Best texture ever! And without doubt, the creme brûlée was among the best I've ever had. Needless to say, we loved this place!
