Shelter Island- Ram's Head Inn

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.

Onto entrees I choose the Blackened Swordfish with mashed plantains.  Both of these seafood dishes were exquisite.  I loved the tropical ingredients chef used with each dish.  It truly made me feel like I was on an island far away, much less New York State...

...with that gorgeous back patio overlooking the harbor it was way too easy to pretend :)
