don't nap at KNAPP Vineyard Restaurant cause you will miss the meal! (8-14-12)

As we entered the heart of the Finger Lakes for several days we

stopped at KNAPP VINEYARD(

located in Romulus, NY just off Seneca Lake) Restaurant for a quick

lunch and wine tasting; it was a great choice as they have a $12 lunch

special daily which includes salad and a choice of main courses. I

started with the 1/2 CRAB CAKE SALAD and this was indeed ONE appetizer

size cake on a salad with a spicy CHIPOTLE DRESSING. I had asked for

the pepper mill, and oddly they did not have one, perhaps as the

dressing is so spicy! My main course was a juicy divine WATER BUFFALO

BERGER on Telira Roll (think Ciabatta) with melted Gruyere Cheese,

Onion, Leaf Lettuce and a tasty Moroccan Red Pepper Aioli.

Samuel loved his Pasta Rags (pieces of lasagna pasta) with Asiago

Cheese & Butter Sauce, while Will chose the Chicken & Bacon Sandwich.

We were able to enjoy the meal even more by sitting outside next to

the vines and also because of the flight tasting options. Will had a

glass of KNAPP Chardonnay which was tasty and refreshing and I chose

the BETWEEN THE LAKES RED Flight which offers 3 tastes:

Knapp Sangiovese--very light, but with flavor

Glenora Syrah-their sister vineyard on Seneca Lake

and the divine ZUGIBE 4 Fred's Red---we headed to this vineyard

afterwards and bought some for sure!
