Saturday 5/16/09 - Canal Side Inn Little Falls,NY

Our friends were getting married at Beardslee Castle in Little Falls, NY (in the Utica area on Upstate NY) on Saturday and we were invited to come up and join them, while the actual ceremony was taking place we had a bit of time to roam around the town and get a bite to eat. On the suggestion of the hotel front desk we visited the canal area (Eire Canal) which was filled with cute antique stores and specialty shops. After getting a bit lost we found the Canal Side Inn . We mainly ordered off of the daily special menu and it was wonderful. Since it was French, there was all sorts of creamy sauces to be found, however each one had its own unique tastes which was nice.

To start we had a baked scallop dish covered with Parmesan cheese (top) and clams in a white wine cream sauce with farfalle pasta (bottom).

Our dinners came with a cup of Potato Leek soup and a freshly tossed Ceasar Salad.

For the main course I had Mahi Mahi with a ginger glaze and ginger butter (bottom) while Jeremy had the Alaskan Halibut with cous cous and ratattoile (top)
