This past Saturday found us in Jefferson, Texas. Jefferson is a tiny town with a 2017 population of 2,106. But the 2,000 people who live there make a concentrated effort to attract visitors and Easter weekend was no exception.
With the dinner hour quickly approaching we selected The KnightLight Tavern. Our hostess/owner was dressed for the occasion. She wasn`t a bunny although she appeared to have whiskers (do rabbits have whiskers?) but she was covered in flowers. That sealed our decision.
Their wine list is very impressive with several house whites and house reds to choose from. The restaurant has an extensive wine by the bottle list including several in the $200 range if you are celebrating or just want one of those wines real bad. They also offer beer and spirits.
We snacked on bread with olive oil and herbs while we enjoyed our wine. It was tasty and just the right size for two people.
I selected the Greek Salad as my entree and could have added shrimp or chicken. It was perfect without the add-ons. It was served with multi-grain crackers right out of the box. They looked out of place. I would have much preferred some of the baguette we had with our olive oil.
Ron ordered the baked salmon with wild rice, steamed asparagus, toasted garlic bread and a house salad. The portion size of the salmon was generous, and the asparagus was not overdone. It was good and reasonably priced.
As you can see by the menu they have something for everyone. Our waitress was accommodating and knowledgeable.
I think one can order a flight of wines to experience and compare other wines. That would be a fun couple`s outing.
In any case we will return if for no other reason than we didn`t order dessert.
