Gluten Free at the Aurora Inn

The Aurora Inn is a beautiful inn and a  landmark in Aurora, NY, the home of Wells College, one of the first women's colleges in the U.S.  It was recently renovated and is a gorgeous place to eat.  The Inn is located above the water on the East side of Lake Cayuga in the Finger Lakes.

One night we boated over and docked at the Inn's private dock and walked up the recently installed flight of steps to the Inn. It was a wonderful night and we could have eaten outside, but the sun was a little bright on the patio, so we sat at a corner table indoors with a bit of a view towards the lake.  The server told me I could have any of the three entrees I was pondering. I chose the salmon which was excellent. I also had an appetizer -- because I could! It was a simple and tasty crab salad served over asparagus. We had asparagus as a side too, but one person ordered ratatouille, and I was so glad. All the side portions are big enough to share, and the ratatouille was about the best I've had.  Other people at the table were brought bread, but I was brought my own scone, and it was warm and delicious. I ate it all, but that was now way too much food, so no dessert, and I had to waddle back to the boat.  A splendid sunset lit the way back to the other side.  A fabulous night! Absolutely gluten free dining-- and spectacular.  That's the way it's done, folks!
