New Gourmet Grocery

"As You Like It," a gourmet grocery and caterer has opened on Eighth Street a few blocks from Fairbanks House. Although most of our guests dine in restaurants, those that "vacation" with us for longer periods of time will generally select our rooms that have basic kitchen facilities. They generally don't cook, but sometimes they like to just kick back in the room and have an in-room "picnic". They have that ability with fridges, tables, plates and utensils in these larger rooms and cottages. With gourmet groceries like this, the selection for "picnicking" just got better. The store is run by Lisa Harter, who also owns La Bodega de Amelia, a great little outdoor cafe on Third Street. I haven't had the opportunity to shop at Lisa's grocery yet but if it's anything like her restaurant, I won't be disappointed.
