Supper at The Castle Restaurant at Dunleith PlantationWednesday, April 11, 2007
I had wanted to stay at Dunleith for this trip to Natchez, but all the rooms I was interested in, in the main house, were all booked. That was okay, though, because we decided that since we had plans to go up into the Delta the next day that we would just drive up to Vicksburg after the Historic Natchez Pageant that evening and save ourselves about an hour of driving time.
Dunleith has a really nice restaurant, and Av made us reservations there for supper before the show. Below is a pic of the main house at Dunleith, and their website has an even better picture of the front of the house.
This is The Castle - it's the restaurant we had supper at, and it's right behind the main house. Inside the menu, they had a note that this is one of the Gothic structures built in the 1790s as part of the original plantation. The first floor of this building housed the horse stables and the second level (the level we had supper in) stored carriages for the property. They still have three of the original carriages at Dunleith.
This is the interior - we were seated in an alcove which was even nicer!
Av had fish for his entree, and I had soup and a salad - everything was really wonderful.
