The crab was delicious, roasted with smoky paprika. It was served with a bearnaise sauce (the menu said it was to be "plated with a daze of Meyer lemons," but apparently there had been a mixup; no Meyers).
Goat's milk cheese puff. I love watercress.
The meat course was lovely; in addition to the grilled lamb, we were served, family-style, the most smoky-delicious tender ribs.
Finally, dessert. The mascarpone ice cream was so light, so creamy.
I have no photos of the restaurant -- though take a look at these pretty plates. (Chargers? Is that what they're called?)
It would be the ultimate decadence to actually stay at the lodge, perhaps in one of the water-side cabins. If they treat their lodge guests as well as they treat their restaurant guests, I think it would be worth it.
