When we opened the resort in July of 2007, one of the patriarchs of the Auberge Resorts group told me that we should be doing a thousand covers a day. According to our point-of-sale system, we did 1,024 yesterday.
Not sure if that was the biggest day in our history or not, but after participating in a screaming busy brunch, a relentless late afternoon push in the grill/pool kitchen, and a full-tilt first turn for dinner service, all I can say for sure that the cold Modelo in my fridge at home went down easy.
From L Fignon: ”Sometimes . . . we simply have to go out to meet the Man with the Hammer.” I don’t know if that’s translated from the French. Anyhow, no need to do that many covers again.
Here are a couple of new salads. We are getting Adriatic figs from the big tree at Rutherford Gardens. The smoked salmon features some of the first apples of the season (pink pearls); we’re also using Gravensteins.

The iPhone is tired from yesterday and won’t send the pix to my laptop. I’ll post them soon.
