Liberty Tree Tavern Lunch

When it was getting close to the time of our reservation I made my way to our lunch destination…

 

….where I found a seat out front and waited for Brenda, Michael, Paula and Hunter to arrive, which they soon did. After checking in we were soon seated in a room dedicated to Thomas Jefferson…or was it Betsy Ross, George & Martha Washington, Benjamin Franklin, John Paul Jones, or Paul Revere. I have no idea?!?! :laughing:

I do know that we were presented with this menu…

 

 

 

 

 

For my beverage I chose Iced Tea because I noticed on the menu that it was freshly brewed…

 

As you can see from the above photo, our table was decorated with spiral confetti, as we were again celebrating our birthdays and Paula & Hunter’s anniversary.

For my entree I ordered the same thing that I had gotten on my last two visits to Liberty Tree Tavern…

 

 

Colony Salad with Washington Apples, Sweet Pecans, Applewood-smoked Cheddar, Craisins Dried Cranberries and Grilled Chicken tossed with Field Greens in a Honey-Shallot Vinaigrette – $14.99

And just like the previous two times, I again loved this salad. I really enjoy the combination of the fruits, candied pecans, and cheddar cheese. And the honey-shallot vinegar and oil dressing is very tasty too.

Though the salad was quite filling, there was no way I could not order dessert here. Because dessert at Liberty Tree Tavern means…

 

Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake – Vanilla Cake with a Gooey Toffee Filling, Caramel Sauce, and Vanilla Ice Cream – $7.49

And another photo sans the birthday candle…

 

Just like the Colony salad, this was a three-peat winner for me. This dessert includes many of my favorites…thick, chewy chocolate chip cookie-like cake, caramel sauce, Heath toffee candy pieces, and vanilla ice cream. Seriously, what’s not to love about the Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake? :confused3

So in conclusion, ever since I discovered the unbeatable combo of the Colony salad and the Ooey Gooey cake during my March 2013 visit, Liberty Tree Tavern has been on my “Must Do Every Trip” list. I have just started making dining plans for my next trip in October and LTT has already been included. :thumbsup2
