friendly surprise

Yesterday, I arrived in Boca Raton, Florida, where I’m attending a conference. I dined at our hotel’s restaurant, Umbria (no website) where I was surprised to find delicious food and a friendly waitstaff. I ordered the Margarita Pizza, and it was pleasantly cheesy and flavorful (the basil was fresh and yummy!). Our waiter was kind enough to indulge my non-alcoholic fancy-drink request and brought me my ADD (Always-Designated-Driver…my ginger-ale-with-a-splash-of-lime-and-cranberry-juice concoction). It’s always interesting to have different places make this drink for me, since they all put their own twist on it; I was not disappointed when my drink arrived looking dressed for the tropics with a squeezed lime and three maraschino cherries topping it off. Overall, this was a pleasantly surprising dining experience where our hotel restaurant impressed (rather than disappointed) me.
