Like Kim, I've had a busy few weeks. And by "busy," I mean decadent. Strange, isn't it, that with so much eating out I've had no time to blog? Something wrong there, considering I'm supposed to be blogging about eating.
A few weeks ago, we spent the weekend in Inverness. It was foggy, a little rainy, and gorgeous. On Friday night we ate at Manka's Inverness Lodge, which has long been on my agenda.
The menu is rather precious even by Bay Area standards.
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).
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.
