Monday was Mr. B's birthday, but he had to teach that night. Plus, the restaurant we wanted to go to isn't open on Mondays anyway, so there was a day's delay. We had been to this place before several times, but always during the winter and wanted to see it out during DST. It is here, called The Rainbow Lodge:
There is an exotic menu, featuring elk and buffalo as well as more traditional entrees, and seafood.The birthday geezer had one of the specials of the day, buffalo--or maybe bison, I forget--tenderloin served with fried green tomatoes on a bed of something else. I got the summer stone fruit salad which included peaches and nectarines, some kind of ruby lettuce, toasted almonds and feta cheese and along with that the crab cake entree, which was heaven on a plate.
Here is the room where we sat:
Sorry this isn't a good picture. The wood on the staircase was really cool and I was trying to show it off. It might be cypress.
Another fireplace and set of giant antlers. After we finished we went through a door exiting from the bar to look at the grounds.
Obviously, the Rainbow Lodge caters to carnivores, but there is seafood on the menu too, and salads and vegetables for those with other tastes. Service is impeccable and there is always valet parking at night. We had a wonderful time.
See for yourself if you ever have the opportunity
Till next time,
