Default Lyons Den

My wife and I have dined at the Lyons Den several times this summer and never disappointed. Usually too full to appreciate desserts until our last visit.
I believe we could make it a point sometime to go just for coffee and dessert. Question then is could one really order a meal after having dessert?
Surely at my age.

Apps, soup, or salad, maybe?? Sweets are supposed to tell your stomach to stop eating, though. Bailey’s on the rocks to accompany dessert.

Gillygirl you may be correct. However.
Once in a while oldsters desire to have their dessert first. Surely I would not deny such request. Refusing could be elder abuse, instances my eyes have seen in nursing facilities.

Why does it take so much sweets for my stomach to get the message?🥧

My wife and I dined at the Lyons Den last night. They really outdid themselves with the menu. I had the lamb shank with Asian BBQ sauce. Absolutely out of this world. The decision was tough though, trying to choose between the lamb, baked stuffed haddock and several other options. My wife had baked stuffed shrimp.

Keep up the great dining experience.

My wife and I visited the Lyons Den Friday night. Looking at the menu there was a tough decision. I opted for the baked stuffed salmon and my wife had baked stuffed shrimp (her favorite}. I made a wise choice and loved the salmon. Staff friday were really great and fun.

We have never been disappointed at the Lyons Den. It is well worth the drive from the opposite side of the lake (Moultonboough).

Default My wife's thought process

My wife's thought process when we go out to dinner at a restaurant known also for their desserts as well as entrees is to ask to see what is on the dessert menu that evening. If the desserts are on a separate menu, she will ask to see it before she makes up her mind on the meal. Great dessert, lighter meal.

Default Lyons Den

Life is short, eat dessert first. One of several signs adorning the walls of the Tilton Diner.

Ok Dave, you got me thinking. Maybe next time a garden salad followed by a serving of triple chocolate cake with another glass of wine
