    Dining in low season

    One thing we have noticed this trip is how quiet the restaurants have been. Now we do tend to dine out early so that’s part of it but even as we are leaving there seem to be a lot of empty tables. Also what surprised us was each of the restaurants we dined in at the Renaissance, L.G. Smith, Fresco and Sole all reflected a 10% discount because we were staying at the hotel.

    That 10% is a nice show of appreciation.
    Where is dinner tomorrow?

    I’m still trying to decide. We’ve checked around to see if anyone else will have white asparagus. Cafe the Plaza will have it the day after we leave. Thought about calling Chalet Susie as we’ve never been. Thought that L.G. Smith might have it but they didn’t. So in reality I will probably get lazy and go somewhere here downtown.

    I know! The debate now is do we want to be tied to a last minute reservation or just relax and try someplace we haven’t been. For this morning though we are headed over to the Dutch Pancake House.

    Again, restaurants very slow this morning. So slow that when we walked by Casa Tua and Cafe the Plaza on the way to the Pancake House, staff was calling us to come in for breakfast. When we were here in November you would have to wait for a table,

    Cafe the Plaza and the Dutch Pancake House were always one of my favorites. The Chalet Suisse sounds lovely. I have never been there but heard lots of good things about them. You would be back at the scenic route of Eagle Beach to enjoy one more time the gorgeous views. In case, you are interested here is their website:

    There are so many great choices. I'm curious which restaurant it will be.

    ETA:
    Asparagus Menu

    Ask for availability in April and May
