Driving down from Connecticut along the route 7 corridor, a beautiful drive on a gorgeous day, I was heading West and looking for a place to dine outside. As I approached the Village of Millerton, I noticed three dining options: one a dark looking tapas place that people outside raved about, another a lovely Colonial B&B that was serving dinner on their outside porch, and then there was Manna Dew Café, with a few street-side tables that looked like the choice of the day for me. I didn't want 'dark', and I didn't want 'stodgy formal', so Manna Dew was perfect.
As it turned out, it was a good choice. The server was welcoming and professional, the menu looked inviting.
I chose a salmon dish that could be ordered for $27.00 (not inexpensive!) or for $32+/- with an appetizer. I opted out of the appetizer. The salmon was 'ok', not sure exactly what kind, but not my favorite variety. However, it was served with a very good (light)sauce, with wild rice and a mix of very good, fresh vegetables including asparagus, carrots, broccoli and some others I couldn't identify but tasted good. I wished the bread was better as the butter tasted farm churned. I had a nice glass of white Bordeaux which went well with the meal ($11.00) and I overheard the waiter say they offer 1/2 glasses of wine, a great idea for those who want a touch more, but not too much if they need to drive. Overall, it was a pleasant dinner, next time I might try the dark tapas place, especially if it's a cool day and the sun doesn't beckon.
