Sometimes they will have a drink specialty menu... sometimes they tweak my interest. You may want to check that out for an after dinner libation.

When I go to a good restaurant, as much as I love my beer, I skip it because it's too filling, and I want to enjoy my meal. Personally, I like a Margarita.

We get by with a little help from our friends

I'd get a Sauternes to go with that Foie Gras for sure. YUM!

i agree with gb; a true 5 star joint should have a kickin' wine list.

after dinner, check to see if they have gran marnier cuvee speciale cent cinquantenaire. a snifter goes for around $30.
May your kilt be short enough to do a jig, but long enough to cover your Lucky Charms.

Order a Moscow Mule - and if it doesn't come served in a copper mug - they should lose a star or two.

Smirnoff used to have ads in Playboy where you could order the mugs ... back circa 1970 +/- a couple of years. I had 2 sets of 4. They all dissapeared over the years (friends with sticky fingers). I had 1 left that one of my sons talked me out of 3-4 years ago.

I will be in Scarbourough Friday on a shopping trip for my daughter (while she is in school). I like my beer ice cold and when I drink hard drinks I don't like to mix them with anything but air or ice. I like extra dry vodka martinis. They sell three olives vodka up here which is a very smooth and clean vodka. Enjoy your trip into Maine. BTW, they traffic in that area of route 1 on weekends is very heavy so please drive safely.

Some choices..

Single Barrel bourbon on the rocks.
blue Bombay martini..up with 3 olives
Old Fashioned(with bitters)
fine wine

If you feel like spending extra cash for something light,
a pomegranate mimosa is very nice if the champagne is descent.

I would probably have a nice, appropriate wine with dinner and a scotch or aged rum as a digestif.

I would go with the wine suggested with the meal...
and afterwards.. maybe martini - but more likely some herbs.. liqueur or brandy..

LiGruess cara ~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"
