AT LONG LAST…
At long last the warm weather has arrived. Although this past weekend was the unofficial start of summer, at the restaurant summer is here. The Summer Terrace is open and every day the menu specials include dishes featuring the fresh produce of the season.
From dining al fresco while enjoying these lighter dishes, to the beauty of the flowers, plants and herbs we grow at the restaurant, I love everything about this time of year.
Why…..perhaps because summer is so short and fleeting? As I noted fifteen years ago in Simply Tuscan, “Think about it, how many great nights do we have in our lives? How many beautiful, temperate, moon-drenched evenings when we actually have the time to stop and just enjoy ourselves, our friends and our families?”
I hope you stop by and enjoy the season with me.
