These days Cyndy and I are always on the lookout for restaurants with a spacious patio. One of the best is in the Seven Gables, a 32-room boutique hotel, just a few blocks from where I live. In recent years, it’s been extensively remodeled and the iconic restaurant renamed. It’s no longer Molly Darcy; it’s now just Seven.
The large interior patio in the heart of downtown Clayton is an oasis for those wanting to unmask and enjoy an outdoor meal.
The new menu at Seven still features a number of the “Lost Classics,” favorites from the menu of long-gone restaurants. Cyndy and I had the much-missed, but not forgotten, Busch’s Grove Russ Salad with it’s turkey, ham, and shrimp additions.
