Karen’s First Time at the Belmont

Posted on May 21, 2021 by under Food and Drink.    

I’ve been telling my friends about the Belmont and their very photogenic, deliciously refreshing cocktails. Karen finally got to try it this past weekend. We met up for open play at Nahola after I taught my Aqua Zumba class. Went to Seneca Park after open play just to see what was up and to get our root beer float fix at TJ’s but TJ’s was closed. Ended up getting our root beer floats at NuWay around the corner. It was just as good.

We ended up killing time until the Belmont opened because I really wanted Karen to check it out. We got there a little before 4 PM but the door was unlocked so I went right in. There was another lady who was waiting in her car in the parking lot when we pulled up so I went back out and told her that they will let us sit and wait inside, which made her think I worked there. LOL. I was just trying to be helpful.

Here are some pictures of our food. We always start with the cheese course when we are there. It’s so perfect. I like everything that they include so nothing ever goes to waste. We usually have to ask for more crostinis so we can use up every bit of cheese and meat that’s provided.

Karen got the bacon-wrapped stuffed potatoes and the smoked salmon.

Brian got the ham and cheese on a pretzel bun, which we shared because it’s plenty for two people to enjoy. As sandwiches go, it was excellent.

Here are a couple of pictures of the pretty drinks.

This is the Dr. No (left) and the Violets Femmes (right). The Dr. No has scotch. I thought it was quite strong but Brian really liked it. He liked it so much that he finished the drink for me. Karen had the Violets Femmes. I’d had it before and it’s one of my favorites there.

The drink on the left is the Flamingo No. 492 and on the right is Calumet. The Flamingo drink is like a fancy margarita. It was quite refreshing and I enjoyed it a lot. Karen had the Calumet which is probably my most favorite drink that they make at the Belmont.

Here’s an up close pic of the Flamingo No. 492 drink. I love how they decorate all the drinks and make them look so pretty. They’re perfect for pictures.

Here’s an up close pic of the Violets Femmes. It was taken on a previous visit. Wanted to re-post this picture because I didn’t get a chance to take a pic of Karen’s drink before she took a sip off it.

I wish I could have taken a photo of me, Brian, and Karen but I didn’t because I looked like crap. I did Aqua Zumba and pickleball and went straight to the restaurant from all these activities with no shower in between. I didn’t even get a Shower Pill in. So no picture this time. I do want to go back for some fun pics, though. The interior decor and ambiance at the Belmont is so unique. It reminds me of a completely different era. I told Karen I want to go back dressed up in 60’s attire and get some Mad Men style pics. So stay tuned for those. Until then, GNG.
