From time to time, they have dinners here, prepared (because there's no kitchen) by an outfit called Joy Road Catering. "Joy" is actually Dana Ewart, a young woman with an intuitive sense of taste and texture, and a caterer's ability to roll with the punches.
With the Brut Rose, appetizers of mussels and pissaldiere. With the sauvignon blanc, a salad of shaved fennel and goat cheese. With the chardonnay, seared scallops. With the pinot noir, roast pork. The sun came out (as it has off and on all day) and there was some talk of moving back down to the edge of the bluff overlooking the lake, but the consensus was to stay put, on the terrace, bathed in the last rays of the sun, with the music of clinking glasses and lively conversations between guests who were strangers half an hour earlier.
