“Good things come in small packages”.
This story begins at the Brown Hound Bistro, a small, yet cozy and tastefully decorated restaurant that is situated in the hamlet of Bristol Springs, NY. For those of you not familiar with the area, the restaurant is in close proximity to Naples and Canandaigua, NY.
Last night, a group of bloggers, travel writers, and some of the Finger Lakes tourism folks met at the Brown Hound to sample an array of deliciousness that the Finger Lakes has to offer; along with gearing up for this evenings Finger Lakes Foodie Awards, all part of this years Finger Lakes Food Revolution Slice, Dice and Spice IV event.
The dinner menu was prepared using local meats, cheeses, fruits, and vegetables. And yes, plenty of Finger Lakes wine flowed throughout the evening.
When we weren’t eating, drinking, and chatting till our hearts content, we did what bloggers and writers do best – we took pictures.
The Brown Hound is one of several restaurants in the Finger Lakes Region that focuses on local resources. As Trish Aser, owner of the restaurant explained, her goal is to make her guests dining experience as local as possible. She does this by displaying local artists work in the restaurant, by inviting local musicians to perform there, and by preparing meals using fresh and local ingredients whenever possible. And I’d say that Trish does it well.
If you’re looking for a great place to dine, celebrate a special occasion, or simply want to support the local food movement, then the Brown Hound Bistro is must.
