As Steven and I drove to Salvatore’s in Herkimer for dinner, I said, “And the beauty part is, I can write a blog post about our dinner!” So here I am, trying to make the post but full disclosure: all I want is another glass of Chardonnay! Don’t judge me.
There was really no reason for a dinner out tonight, except that we wanted to go. Salvatore’s is right in town, and we like them. When we pulled into the parking lot at 4:08 (I was looking at the clock in the car), the parking lot was empty. So was the dining room, and a nice young man invited us to it wherever we would like. Steven suggested an intimate table for two.
Soon we were sipping Chardonnay and perusing menus. We got up to look at the special board again, after telling the waitress that yes, we had seen the specials. We decided to order off the menu. I got a Chicken Greek Wrap with pasta salad while Steven got a Spinach Salad with ranch dressing and a bowl of vegetable-beef-potato soup. The parking lot got more full as we sat there. A few more people came in for take-out orders and a young man sat in the dining room for a slice of pizza. Additionally, a few people were sitting outside at a table. I had thought of sitting outside at a table but ultimately felt it was too warm for me.
Our dinners were delicious, and we had leftovers to take home. These will enhance my lunch tomorrow and perhaps our dinner another day. We enjoyed the quiet dining surroundings, although we have also enjoyed busier nights when we have seen people we know dining.
I highly recommend Salvatore’s, 650 1/2 W/ German St., Herkimer, NY. You can Like them on Facebook.
