It's been a long time since I went to Knapp's Restaurant in the Finger Lakes, a beautiful spot with an arbor covered patio overlooking the vineyards of the winery. It used to be one of my favorite places to go before I found out I was gluten intolerant. That, and the fact that they no longer serve dinner, only lunch, had put a damper on my going there. I heard that they had very nice salads though, so I decided to try them out. As it turned out, they do have incredible salads, but I didn't have one. What I did have was a very nice salmon in a limoncello beurre blanc with some garlic/herb mashed potatoes. The salmon was supposed to come with orzo, but the potatoes came with the chicken, so the kitchen did not actually have to make something special.
The day that we went was very cold and rainy – it may have been in the 50's – in June! – so we sat indoors. There was a lot of nice art around the walls, all for sale. I was sorely tempted by a beautiful photograph of a bird on a branch. In earlier times at Knapp's the music in the background had been light classical, but this time it was 60's rock. If there had been no one else in the restaurant I would have gotten up and danced. Who needs gluten?! It was a great day.
