Stop and Go!
I don’t say this often. But whatever you’re doing: Stop! Make a reservation to eat at the Lucky Accomplice.
Okay, I know it’s a “fer piece” for many of you county folks, but it’s well worth the trip.
A New American Menu
The dark decor is handsome without being bleak. The dimness might even give a romantic setting for some, depending on your age and companion. Our servers, (there were 3 throughout our meal), pleasantly and patiently guided us through the two-prong menu. One menu offered small dishes suitable for sharing. The other a 7 or 14-course tasting experience.
To get in on Saturday night, we had to take a 5 pm reservation, so it’s best to plan ahead.
Dishes to Swoon Over
There were three of us: Robin and our friend, Nina, who had gifted me the night out. We settled on a number of small dishes to share.
It Was a WOW! Evening
As we drove home, I asked Robin what she had liked best of the many plates.
“It was all so good, it’s hard to say. But the mixed mushrooms with wheatberries was stellar.” Fortunately, we have some wild mushrooms in the farm freezer, so I suspect that before long she’ll be trying to replicate the dish.
“Oh, and that dessert,” she added. “It was definitely not an afterthought.”
