Saturday night has traditionally been when Ted and I have “date night”. I put that in quotes because “date night” may mean anything from dinner out at a restaurant, to grilling in the backyard, to eating at home and maybe walking somewhere for dessert. But, as you can see, it always involves food!
There are so many good restaurants on Mackinac, and I can safely say in the last 22 years, we’ve tried nearly all of them. For a really special night out, we’ll go to the Carriage House at Iroquois Hotel or 1852 Grill Room at Island House Hotel, or take a carriage ride out to Woods Restaurant. But last night we chose our favorite “go to” spot, Chippewa Hotel Waterfront. Some of our favorites on their dinner menu are the Whitefish Beurre Blanc, the Boursin Stuffed Chicken, Mackinac Surf & Turf, Filet & Wild Mushoom Risotto, and my personal favorite, Pasta Di’Angelina with Blackened Shrimp (you have a choice of adding shrimp or chicken).
After dinner, instead of doing the smart thing and walking home, we called a taxi and sat out in front of the Chippewa to people watch until it came. A new thing we’ve noticed this year about the taxis (they may have started this last year, but since we weren’t here we missed it) is that now the taxi office takes your number – and you get a text when your taxi is dispatched, with the taxi number and the driver’s name!
