A Marvelous Fare at Plumed Horse

My newborn niece recently celebrated her welcome party in one of Saratoga's celebrated restaurants: Plumed Horse.  The restaurant is in the heart of downtown Saratoga and has a great atmosphere which I like to refer to as California chic.  We were treated to a festive wine reception and an amazing seven course Tasting Menu topped off with our very own piano player (my very talented nephew).  Give my family bottles of wine and a piano and we can turn any place into a piano bar!  What an enjoyable evening!  I truly enjoy spending time with family.  We have a great new addition to our "United Colors of Benetton" family.  Welcome little girl...we love you!
