New York - Skaneateles - Elderberry Pond / by Dave Hileman

First, it is pronounced Skinny Atlas. I know, how? But it is. Second, Elderberry Pond is about three miles into the country and more than worth the trip. What a wonderful meal. Super, actually, in a beautiful place. The restaurant is on a farm, Elderberry Pond Farm, and many of the foods served are grown here. Like the potatoes we had, some of the greens, herbs, vegetables and, I believe, some of the meats are raised here. Not ours as we both had seafood. This was a splurge meal, we had three on our trip and each one was really fun and delicious. The building is elegant country with nice views and pleasant atmosphere. We had an apple cider that was pressed on site from apples grown on the farm. Writing this I am unsure why we did not share a dessert but we passed. Likely a big mistake. One of the special memory meals we will remember for a long time. They also have a small store but it was not open when we were there. http://www.elderberrypond.com
