To celebrate Pat's childhood friend's birthday, we went to the CIA in Hyde Park, NY for an Italian lunch.
We had to navigate the large campus to find our restaurant - they have 4. But the maps are easy to figure out, even without a GPS.
We should have just followed these guys!
The Italian restaurant is a stand-alone building painted in the warm tones of Tuscany.
I love the sign, 4 forks. You know there is good food inside...
After our 3 course lunch, we walked around to see the other restaurants.
French, American and a bakery cafe offer a full menu of cuisine choices.
It was great to see the students at work.
As you walked the halls, you definitely got a "Hogwarts" / Harry Potter feel...
CIA - definitely worth a trip for a mid-week summer lunch. Make reservations on line and come hungry.
