If I had to pick my two favorite places from the Shelter Island it would easily be Croteaux and the Ram's Head.
This sprawling Inn was absolutely gorgeous with an elegant yet rustic interior and a big spacious lawn outside perfect for playing croquet, sipping some wine or simply relaxing.
We came for dinner one evening and I began with the Tuna Cocktail; a fruity blend of mango salsa and avocado dressed with a fresh ginger-coconut marinade.
...with that gorgeous back patio overlooking the harbor it was way too easy to pretend :)
