To Grandmother’s house we go! Lunch inside Little Red Riding Hood’s house? No it isn’t a fairytale, but you may recognize this real life restaurant from the illustrations of a memorable childhood story.
Enchanting Pickity Place [248 Nutting Hill Rd, Mason, NH 03048] offers a five-course gourmet lunch topped with edible flowers and herbs grown in the garden out back. Reservations are strongly advised, there are three seating’s a day. Get there early and wander around the garden or in the shops as you await the lunch bell.
Keep your ears alert for that bell though, the grounds are oh so sweet, but lunch is calling! Each month a different menu is available which you can view prior to your visit online. Wolfing down this meal is no easy task, have a very light breakfast if any at all! We were seated to a quaint corner table and happily nibbled on fruit and cheese.
But of course, we devoured them. Delicious to the last licks of the fork. Perhaps my favorite course, and if you know me it comes as no surprise, was dessert. A little lemon and blackberry cupcake, so dense, sweet, and tangy – topped with a perfectly ripe berry.
Also, who knew you could eat the petals from a rose of Sharon? The service and product of this restaurant go above and beyond creating quite the magical experience – and a lunch that will not soon be forgotten.
