I can’t say enough good things about Tarry Lodge. We went for lunch on Friday to say goodbye to a friend and colleague, Mary Lynn, and had another delicious meal. I tried the asparagus Milanese:
Soft-cooked egg over grilled asparagus with crispy speck. Yes!
Karen and Mary both got the salad with gorgonzola and walnuts:
Also some apples and cranberries in there. Very good. Mary Lynn tried the Tarry Greens with White Bean vinaigrette:
Good but she said the lettuce was a tad wilted.
The kitchen sent out a beet salad for us to share. (It was a little cold, unfortunately.)
So not a total hit on the starters, but the asparagus more than made up for that:
For our main courses, Karen ordered the linguine with clams, chilis and pancetta:
Mmm. Delicious. Mary Lynn got her favorite, the tagliatelle bolognese:
Mary had the pumpkin fiore, sort of like ravioli:
Sweet and herbacious from the sage.
I got the Capricciosa pizza with artichokes, prosciutto cotto and cremini mushrooms:
Two pieces and the rest for dinner with hunna!
Yes, we got dessert. A sundae with dulce de leche, chocolate and sour cherries:
An insane cheesecake:
Karen, Mary and Mary Lynn:
Bye Mary Lynn!
