Hello, hello, foodie friends 😁 Hope you had an amazing weekend! This weekend in adventures – Birthday Dinners, Adam’s Bistro, and Bagels Galore!
Birthday Dinner at Restaurant 17
Traveler’s Rest, SC
Pictures above from the view around the hotel attached, patio, and vineyard adjacent. Someone could get used to waking up to a view like this ❤
The hotel and restaurant are nestled at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains, surrounded by gorgeous views and a small vineyard across the road. Hotel Domestique, a quaint, Old World Style building next door, lends a great backdrop and atmosphere as you look out from the bar of Restaurant 17.
The three menus above change seasonally and also by the variety of amazing local ingredients contributed by the farmers and suppliers listed. Check marks on the menus (added post-dinner, of course) detail what we ordered for my friends birthday celebration!

This is one of our local favorites! Great homemade dishes, good atmosphere, and awesome service.
Going clockwise, starting at 12, we had…
- Chicken Sonoma- grilled chicken, topped w/sautéed asparagus, sun-dried tomatoes & a white wine cream sauce
- Pasta Mykaela- sautéed Portobello mushrooms w/ spinach, sundried tomatoes, artichokes, angel hair, lemon butter & Parmesan
- Chicken Cordon Blue- chicken breast stuffed w/ ham & swiss, crumbed & fried, topped w/ white cheese sauce
Greenfield’s Bagel Bakery
In business for 18 years, this little Jewish bakery is a gem and the best place around to get bagels, sandwiches, homemade cookies and baked goods, and some great lox too!
We got a black and white cookie, baked fresh on Sunday (which got inhaled so quickly I couldn’t even take a picture 😂), a Brown Sugar Blueberry bagel (pictured right with cream cheese), a cinnamon raisin, and honey wheat bagel, only three of their 20+ flavors on the menu. A must try for breakfast, lunch, and a Sunday morning with family!
How was your weekend? I’d love to hear your foodie adventures from this weekend too! As always, feel free to like, comment, and share, and look out for another post coming up later on this week 🤗
