No summer is complete without a trip around the lake to Suzanne's. Usually, we make it our business to get over there a few times a season but this was the first, this year. And, even though the parking lot was overflowing last Wednesday night, when we arrived, they made us feel like we were the only ones there. We began our exquisite meal out on the porch and even with the overcast sky blocking the sunset, the clouds with their pinkish tones and hues hanging over the hills made the view lovely. Soft music, a glass of Finger Lakes Chardonnay, and Suzanne's amazing "Day Boat Scallops" appetizer, was a perfect way to relax after a busy day. After moving inside for the remainder of our meal, I enjoyed the green salad with Lively Run Goat cheese, and Bob chose the Tomato Soup, which he said was outstanding. For his entree, Bob had the Free Range Chicken, which is always superb, and I had the Fresh Caught Halibut in a mild broth, with fingerling potatoes. The fish was unlike any fish I have ever had - so mild and yet perfectly seasoned and delectable. Co-owner, Bob Stack, related to us that they have a special supplier who flies it in daily from the coast - and it is truly "fresh caught". Dessert is always a special treat at Suzanne's and even though we don't save room for it, it is hard to pass up. This evening was no exception. And, of course, Suzanne's special little pastries always arrive when you think you cannot eat another bite - but, of course, we do. Be sure to get to Suzanne's when you are visiting Seneca Lake or anywhere in the vicinity.
