Food–And What a View!

Such a nice way to spend an hour! We went to The Hawkeye Bar and Grill at The Otesaga for lunch.
It’s one of my favorite places to go where I can pretend to be a tourist – the outdoor seating is by the lake and you’re only separated from the water by rolling grass. Skiers on the lake. Kids playing lawn games. People getting sun by the pool.

Touristy things. It puts everyone in a good mood!

And the lunch…I think they have about the best Caesar salad around, I had it topped with a perfectly seared piece of salmon. It’s so fresh and refreshing. My friend had an unusual dish, the Roasted Vegetable Tart. It was a Fontina crust puffed pastry filled with asparagus, goat cheese, onions, peas and fava beans. It had a little carrot salad on the side and looked tasty. The combination of all of the flavors really works.

Try The Otesaga for dinner as well, the “After 5 Menu” will satisfy everyone in your party. The last time we were there for dinner we enjoyed the slow roasted prime rib. Cooked perfectly and just melted in my mouth. Someone got the Truffled Mushroom burger, to die for! Roasted mushrooms, brie, arugula then topped with Truffle Aioli. You can’t go wrong with that combination. It’s served on a cutting board with fries. Delicious! (The Otesaga Resort Hotel 60 Lake St., Cooperstown)
