LOCAL: Birthday Dinner at Restaurant Latour

Last month, a certain someone in our family celebrated a very special birthday. To celebrate this big birthday, the family spent a weekend together at Crystal Springs Resort located in Sussex County, New Jersey. Surprisingly, it was only an hour way from us.

The entire weekend was lovely! Crystal Springs has a Biosphere Pool and two great spas on site. We enjoyed an afternoon at the pool, eating cake batter gelato, followed by a massage at Reflections Spa. I haven’t felt that pampered and relaxed in a long time! To cap off the birthday celebrations, we enjoyed a fancy dinner at Restaurant Latour, located at the resort. It was AMAZING! In addition to their delectable food, they have a world famous Wine Cellar! The cellar has wine from regions all over the world and dating back to 1863! It is a spectacular site to see.

Every dish was cooked to perfection, and not a morsel was left on any plate. I highly recommend the Crystal Springs Resort and Restaurant Latour for your next special occasion.
