Aug. 5, 2009: 12:30 p.m.NOTE to readers: I just learned from contacting the Ritz-Carlton, when the hyperlink below quit working, that they had a fire last night and the entire restaurant was completely destroyed. There’s an investigation underway at this time.

I had the opportunity recently to finally dine at one of the restaurants at the Ritz-Carlton, Reynolds Plantation in Greensboro, Georgia. We dined at the Linger Longer located in The Oconee Clubhouse of the Ritz-Carlton Lodge. Not knowing anything about the restaurant when I made reservations I asked the reservationist to recommend where we should request to dine within the restaurant. She suggested and requested the chef’s table—with no guarantee that we’d get it. But we did and it was fabulous. It’s in the main dining room (vs. the bar dining room) and is located nearest the open chef’s kitchen. We had an excellent waiter, exceptional wine, and a visit from the chef during the final course of our dinner. I started with the half dozen water oysters Rockefeller and then had the 6 oz. Black Angus filet mignon with the creamy Gorgonzola mac n’ cheese (OK I really splurged on the mac n’ cheese). There are plenty of incredible salads as a possible second-course selection … but our two courses plus wine and a plate of complementary chocolate varieties for dessert (to share) topped off our cravings for anything else. So the entire dinner was perfect and we had plenty of time to linger longer. Enjoy it with friends which is exactly what we did. Check it out at Linger Longer, Ritz-Carlton Lodge.
