Our 4th Wedding Anniversary
Today is our 4th wedding anniversary. So far we have celebrated with the hubs singing “Happy Anniversary, Happy Anniversary, Happy Anniversary, Happy Anniversary!” to me. Which made me smile because no matter how how you get, it’s sort of a family tradition to call and sing to people on their birthdays and anniversaries.
We also celebrated by going out to dinner at the Accomac Inn over the weekend. Late on Saturday I realized that for the past 4 years we’ve unintentionally spent every anniversary doing something along the Susquehanna (we were married at Lauxmont Farms overlooking the river). So last minute, we thought we’d try to have dinner overlooking it again. I called around 6 pm to see if we would need a reservation or could just show up. They recommended a reservation at 8 pm and asked if we were celebrating a wedding or anniversary. So I told the gentleman, “Yes, actually, our anniversary,” wondering if they do something special for us because of it.
The Accomac Inn offers fine dining in the Wrightsville area, overlooking the Susquehanna. We’ve eaten there a handful of times and I’ve never had a bad meal there. The food is so delicious that I try to eat more than one course AND save room for dessert. Since I’m by no means a foodie or food blogger, I didn’t think to take a picture of any of our dishes. For an appetizer I ordered a chilled mint and cucumber yogurt soup over arugula and chickpea salsa. This was listed as a Special so if you’re visiting Accomac anytime soon, I HIGHLY recommend it. It was my favorite part of the meal we ate there, which I can say because we ordered desert to go
For my meal I ordered the Hake, which I’ve never had, but figured that I like most fish. Turns out I don’t like Hake, it was prepared really well, but the herb risotto was may favorite part of my entree. And my favorite part of the hubs’ meal was the potatoes fried in duck fat. I may have committed carbicide. The potatoes came with the hubs’ order of the rib eye and they were fried to crispy golden perfection.
For nearly the entire first half of the meal, we had a view of the sun setting over Susquehanna:
As mentioned, we didn’t have room for dessert, but didn’t want to miss out so we ordered it to go. Again, I forgot to take pictures before we
devoured it as soon as we walked in the door ate it, but I found pictures of both posted on Accomac’s blog. The hubs got the Strawberry Pavlova and I got the Flourless Chocolate Cake. I’ll let the pictures do the talking, but we were both in heaven.
I also mentioned that when I called to make a reservation they asked if it was an anniversary. I initially thought that was really great customer service. But then dinner was over and nothing had happened, no acknowledgement of it. Not sure if we should have mentioned it or not, but I do feel that there was a missed marketing opportunity and disconnect in follow through. I wouldn’t have expected anything if they hadn’t asked if we were celebrating a special occasion. Anyone know if Accomac typically does something special for your anniversary?
