- Lake Placid Olympics
By Laura Byrne Paquet
We came for dinner but got a side dish of golf.
It all started when our daughter spotted a half-abandoned mini-putt course on the knoll behind the Eat ‘n’ Meet Grill, an off-the-wall restaurant in Saranac Lake, New York.
In the time it took for our tasty jerk chicken and fish tacos to arrive, Stephanie had tracked down the free putters and balls, and was partway up the hill. It took some persuasion to get her to come down and eat. After a quick nosh, she scampered off again to finish her game under the gaze of a huge Elvis statue on the restaurant’s balcony.
