Finger Lakes Summer

Sunset view

There are not many places in the Finger Lakes where you can get a great meal AND a spectacular view at the same time.  The 1820 House will serve you both. Skaneateles locals love this off-the-beaten-trail eatery because its quiet, casual, consistently delicious and reasonably priced.
Head south from Skaneateles, to find this former farmhouse. built in 1820. It is located in Borodino, 8 miles from the village of Skaneateles.

The exterior is a bit weathered, but don’t let that fool you. The food is tasty and nicely presented.

Finger Lakes SummerI ordered the NY Strip & Scampi, eight ounce NY strip topped with jumbo shrimp and housemade garlic butter. Salty, but every bite was mouth-wateringly delicious. Other entrees include Dijon Encrusted Salmon, eight ounce wild salmon filet with a dijon mayonnaise and panko crust, or Veal and Lobster Picatta, tender veal, lobster, tomatoes and capers sauteed in a lemon butter sauce over angel hair pasta.
