Summer Is for Lobster Rolls and Waterfront Dining
Marissa, Ruth and I discovered that you don’t have to pay $27 for an entree to sit by the river and have a couple drinks. Striped Bass in Tarrytown has renovated. They added a walk-up counter for burgers, sandwiches, and yes — lobster rolls.
OK, OK — they’re no Mary’s Fish Camp, Pearl St. Oyster Bar or even “Lunch” lobster rolls, but they’re not bad.
They come with Lays chips, and, for a fee, a glass of pinot grigio. We got to have real glasses instead of plastic because at first, Marissa and I were sitting in the “restaurant” part of the restaurant.
When Ruth came, we moved over to the self-serve area. Here, Mariss points to where we were sitting.
After a wine, we went to the kiosk to place our order. (Hey — I just noticed the tomato, basil and feta dip. I bet that’s good! Oh well, another trip.)
We went back to table to await our name called over the loudspeaker. God I hate names called over the loud speaker, don’t you?
Nice view, though.
Mmm — lobster roll.
Pooky was different. She got the grilled portobello and mozzarella sandwich. Pretty darn good!
We left the sun to finish setting on its own.
As I sit here behind my desk, this certainly looks like a great way to end a hard days work! Hey Maris! I wish I was right there with you ladies!
I only like to hear my name called over a loudspeaker at Taylor's Refresher. What was that perfect phrase you heard out there, "Looks like a great lunch you got there, Augie" or something to that effect? Good times.
Yes. At Taylor's Refresher in Napa Valley, they call your name and say, "Boo, your lunch is ready. Boo?" and then you go up to the side door of the kitchen and a nice man hands you a red plastic tray with your food on it.
The day we visited, someone annouced over the loudspeaker: "Mel, your lunch is ready." And when Mel went to get his tray, the guy said, "I gotta admit Mel, that's a good-lookin lunch."
