Wandering Moose Cafe & Caterng on Urbanspoon

 

If you ever happen to go skiing at Mohawk Mountain, CT, then the Wandering Moose Café is a nice little café option for a pleasant meal.

Located right by the covered bridge in West Cornwall, it has a view of the beautiful river and picturesque mountains in the background. In the warmer months, sitting outside must be a feast for the eyes.

The food here is rather average. Nothing outstanding but the service is very friendly and the place has soul. Its seems to be frequented by locals and the menu offers better food choices than most other places in this area ( choice is rather limited).

We tried their brunch where the highlights of our meal were the pancakes, corn beef hash and a really delicious homemade carrot cake.

So do stop off for a meal, a cup of tea or just a spot of dessert. The Wandering Moose Café promises to soothe the “wandering” soul.


Here is some of what we ate:


CORN BEEF HASH AND EGGS


BUTTERMILK PANCAKES WITH BLUEBERRIES AND CHOCOLATE CHIPS


EGG SANDWICH WITH BACON


EGGS BENEDICT


CARROT CAKE


BUCK’S STRAWBERRY AND MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP ICE-CREAM

Dishes not to miss: Seared Lamb Chops

 

Casa Tua, is a delightful Italian-style eatery in the heart of South Beach, which is set in a gorgeous Mediterranean-style house/ hotel. This restaurant flows through various parts of the house, where each area is decorated with intimate elegance. We dined in the charming outdoor garden area.
 
Casa Tua lived up to my expectations in its ambience and charm but disappointed when it came to service and food. Most of the dishes just failed to impress. The seared lamb chops was the one dish that really stood out but the rest of the food fell rather flat. The service was rather unimpressive too. At a place like this, you expect to be indulged in every way – no such luck here.

For the price point and the hype, I really think Casa Tua was unsuccessful at reaching its true potentiality.

Here is some of what we ate:

 

SEARED LAMB CHOP

 

RICOTTA CAVATELLI


 

TAGLIOLINI WITH MAINE LOBSTER WHITE ASPARAGUS SAUCE


 

WARM CHOCOLATE MELTDOWN


 

ROSEMARY CRÈME BRULEE


 

VANILLA PANNA COTTA

Japonais is just one more of those prodigious, Japanese inflected restaurants that you find all over New York City these days.

You enter and know that you’ve “been there, done that”.

Le Périgord on Urbanspoon


“Tired” is the word that comes to mind when I think about my evening spent at Le Perigord, which is nestled in the heart of Sutton Place. Every thing about the evening was just so pathetically dreary and tiring.

There was no real “welcome” when we entered the restaurant. We were ushered to our table and just kind of left there for quite some time  with the menus till we asked for someone to come and take our order. The general air of all the servers was brusque. And even the little charm that I thought the place had in its simple table setting wore off by the time the appetizers were done. For the rest of the meal – I just kept hearing the “tick-tock” of a clock….when will this be done? Read the rest of this entry
